9780099461487: The Craze

James Ellroy meets Irvine Welsh in a brilliant debut novel of crime, drugs and urban violence.

C was for cars which he’d nicked and crashed,
R was for robbery, armed and fast.
A was for arson, fire and theft,
Z was for the cuts his switchblade left,
E was for drugs, the Whizz and Horse.

Which just left murder, the hardest, of course.

She was found on the tracks: burned up, tongue cut out, a finger removed. Who was she? 24 hours before, Shazia Ahmed was leaving Manchester, but a chance meeting and a phone call and she found herself in the underworld where life is cheap and usually very short.

Jamie Farrell already knows this: that the drugs and crime will tip over into murder. His father is in Strangeways prison, and he’ll be joining him. But he can’t give up the deadly game that is the Craze.

Dru Round thought his big day had come: no more cheap drag acts and furtive sex in the backs of cars. A new dawn of TV fame beckoned. But he just needed that extra score to make things work for him... Three lives, one crime — the Craze.

From the Inside Flap:

Manchester: In one day, three characters are drawn to their destinies: Jamie, a teenage car-jacker; Billy, a gun-toting psychopath; and Shazia, a fugitive from her traditional family. Their fates are tragically bound together and will be forged in a blood denouement.

About the Author:

Paul Southern was a founder member of the indie group Sextus and is now half of a progressive bubblegum group Psychodelicates. He has lived in Ireland, London, Yorkshire and Manchester and is a world expert on Tennyson’s stage plays. The Craze was his first novel.
