Cast your mind back to the 1970s when Britain still had a coal industry and Margaret Thatcher had yet to do her worst. The Price of Coal brings the Yorkshire miners' existence vividly to life in a novel by turns tough, humorous and chilling. Centred around the daily grind at Milton colliery, a visit by the Prince of Wales provides the opportunity for well-aimed swipes at middle-management as they grass over the slag heaps, whitewash the blackened walls and put soft soap in the toilets. When disaster strikes, Hines brings the reader face to face with the horror.
