HARDBOILED CORNER: GUNS OF BRIXTON!

HARDBOILED CORNER: GUNS OF BRIXTON!

MARK TIMLIN

THE CREATOR OF ONE OF THE TOUGHEST PRIVATE DICKS OF ALL TIME (NICK SHARMAN) GIVES US AN EPIC NOVEL OF VILLAINY . . .

Spanning 40 years of love, life, and villainy, this epic novel is a major tour de force from an author at the peak of his powers, the Spillane of Brit Noir

Once upon a time in south London, three young men without a future decide to invent their own. The sixties are starting to swing and Jimmy, John, and Billy want it all: the clothes, the pills, the music, and the women. Through drugs, protection, and armed robbery, they start building their crime empire; everything they’ve always dreamed about is within their grasp.

But then Billy changes sides and becomes a cop — and finds that his days are numbered. Now, decades later, Billy’s son, Mark, is working for John Jenner and waiting for the day when his father’s killer gets out of prison.

It’s any time now and Mark is determined to be there when the doors swing open.
