Joseph Knox's action-packed crime drama turns Manchester into Chicago, where everyone could be pushing drugs or young flesh.Aidan Waits, a seemingly disgraced police officer, actually working undercover, is persuaded to rescue a millionaire's underage daughter from this world,but the harder he tries, the more complex the situation grows. Atmospheric and keeps you guessing.
Gritty witty and clever. excellent plot line. expertly crafted characters all woven into a good book. Highly recommended.
If you like rebus, then this book will not disappoint.
I was taken away from the first page
I love the details this author used in his previous series of Japan and China. This was very different but just as good
The book was exactly as described and arrived well within the delivery timeframe.
If one reads a fair amount of great books ya may find this one good. If you're a pulper, here's one to step up your game, ya git.
Joseph Knox is one of a new breed of crime writers creating gritty stories based around the northern industrial gang ridden Manchester belt. What he does he does extremely well exposing vice and corruption in the underbelly of inner city life. Aidan Waits is a detective living on the edge quite happy to accept the odd little gift, enjoy a crafty snifter, or test the strength of his septum by sniffing copious amounts of cocaine. When his boss Superintendant Parrs confronts Waits, outlining his numerous misdemeanours, he suggests a solution that will benefit both parties. Aidan must agree to infiltrate and feedback intelligence on the activities of gang supremo Zain Carver and the only way to achieve this is to go deep undercover......

Although this is a well written story and there are many and varied characters on show in a city overflowing with illegal late night activity, it was not a novel I particularly enjoyed. I realize that this is probably the first in a new series, by a writer who some may well view as a new Lee Child or Simon Kernick, but for me as a standalone work it failed to inspire. I need my crime to be riddled with characters who appear to be strong on the surface but are consumed by doubt and indecision. I want to explore their weaknesses and to be shown how this impacts on their daily existence not only for them but for the immediate family and loved ones. I read this story in two sittings and found the content more akin to a script for a well made tv series, enough to keep me entertained but little to entice me to return.Many thanks to the publishers who in return for an honest review supplied me with a gratis copy, and that is what I have written.
