Inspired by real life events, this gritty first novel by a true crime author is a contemporary Trainspotting
"If those pricks want a war, lad, we’ll show what some proper soljas can do."
Dylan, Nogger, and their crew "tax" rival drug dealers using a red-hot steam iron and celebrate by making videos of themselves raping wannabe WAGs. In their world, guns and knives are as common as cellphones. But when an innocent three-year-old girl is killed in the crossfire, extreme measures are brought in to combat gang warfare. From burgeoning organized crime to warped celebrity culture, this is an apocalyptic vision of a world in freefall. This gripping debut novel is all the more shocking because it is inspired by real-life events.
