Overview

As dodgy English towns go, Mangel doesn’t look like much, but it’s everything to Royston Blake. In Mangel, Blake is head doorman at Hoppers Wine Bar & Bistro, drives a Ford Capri 2.8i, and generally has no trouble getting laid.

Overview

As dodgy English towns go, Mangel doesn’t look like much, but it’s everything to Royston Blake. In Mangel, Blake is head doorman at Hoppers Wine Bar & Bistro, drives a Ford Capri 2.8i, and generally has no trouble getting laid. On any given day, he can walk the streets of his town knowing he’s respected by one and all.

That is, until a rumor begins to circulate that Blake’s “lost his bottle,” and everything goes to hell. Even his best mates Fin and Legsy have heard the talk that the formerly hard-living bruiser has gone soft, lost his edge, and become a pushover in a town where he can ill afford it. To make matters worse, the Munton brothers are after him, and the thought of ending up in the back of their notorious Meat Wagon is almost too much to bear. Something’s gotta give, but it sure as hell won’t be Blake.

What ensues is an outrageously bloody showdown that will leave a permanent scar on the grubby face of Blake’s beloved West Country town. Deadfolk is a brutal black comedy that introduces a wholly original voice to the ranks of literature’s most memorable protagonists.
