So he decides to talk to a few people, do some sniffing around. He does, but is soon told to stop. By Gerald and Les, his bosses from the smoke. Not to mention the men who run things in Doncaster, who aren't happy with Jack's little holiday at home. They want him back in London, and fast. Now Frank was a mild man and did as he was told, but Jack's not a bit like that ...

A must, taught and enjoyable.

Having read GBH I had to read this and was not disappointed. Taught and gritty Carter comes over as more violent and misogynistic than in the film but as in GBH it is all the better for not being too graphic.

It is difficult not to compare it to the film and I found the storylines running in parallel in my head, close but not close enough to spoil it: the ending in the book is better.
