And all the time his old enemy is circling ...

"With old-fashioned villains, and a sharp line in dialogue, Clayton is getting better and better. This is a neat British gangster thriller written with elan and substance" ( Daily Mail)
"With strong characters, a fast pace and lots of twists and turns, this is a satisfying read, right to the shocking end" ( Peterborough Evening Times)
"If you love a gritty UK-based drama then this book is an absolute must read ... It's cleverly constructed, beautifully thought out and with a main character that the reader can't help but associate with, it's a book that really was hard to put down" ( Falcata Times)
