9780007106134: To Hell in a Handcart

Richard Littlejohn exposes the madness of modern Britain in this thrill-packed rollercoaster ride of a novel, bursting with all the humour and irreverence that have made him Britain’s No 1 newspaper columnist.

What right do you have to protect your family and property from violent criminals? Richard Littlejohn has explored this and other burning social issues in his work as a journalist. Now he takes it even further in a fast-paced powerhouse of a novel, part polemic, part comedy, part tragedy.

Mickey French is just an ordinary bloke, an ex-cop struggling to look after his family as self-righteous do-gooders and bungling bureaucrats bring the country to its knees. But Mickey’s life is turned upside down when he is attacked in his own home and forced to defend himself. His arrest for murder is front-page news, and soon the whole nation is watching as he battles for justice, lost in a maze of dodgy lawyers, politically correct police officers, bogus asylum-seekers, self-publicising politicians, shameless journalists and rabble-rousing shock-jocks.

Review:

‘I admire Littlejohn, love his writing and am amazed that 1990s Britain has only produced one such satirist.’
Matthew Parris, The Times

‘The only serious competitor P.J. O’Rourke has.’ Independent
