9780151013227: Saturday's Child (Cal Innes)

Cal Innes is fresh out of prison and ducking a past muddied with ties to local gang lord "Uncle" Morris Tiernan. But when Tiernan finds out Innes is working as an unlicensed PI and calls in a favor Innes doesn’t owe, Innes is thrust into a cat-and-mouse game with Tiernan’s psychotic son, Mo. Ordered to track down a rogue casino dealer who’s absconded with a hefty chunk of cash, Innes finds that the case points north to Newcastle. With Tiernan’s son on his tail and a Manchester cop determined to put Innes back in jail, Saturday’s child has to work hard to keep living.

From the Back Cover:

"A knock-out, written with the kind of energy and passion that far too few writers can muster. Fresh and fierce, Saturday’s Child raises the bar for hardboiled fiction."―Laura Lippman, author of New York Times bestseller What the Dead Know

ADVANCE PRAISE FOR SATURDAY’S CHILD

"Saturday's Child is fascinating, fresh, and darkly funny."―Thomas Perry, bestselling author of Silence

"One of the finest P.I. novels of the year . . . The future of U.K. detective fiction is Ray Banks."―Jason Starr, author of The Follower 

"A savage hardboiled spanking, Saturday’s Child will leave you begging for more."―Victor Gischler, author of Shotgun Opera

"Banks takes the Brit noir thriller format and gives it a damn good and much deserved kicking."―Martyn Waites, author of The Mercy Seat

"Ray Banks steps up into the majors . . . I’d love to read what tops this."―Ken Bruen, Shamus-winning author of The Guards

"Banks mixes sharp humor with crackling dialogue in a wild ride across the pond. Saturday’s Child is a page turner, start to finish."―Charlie Stella, author of Mafiya: A Novel of Crime

From the Inside Flap:

"Fast, funny, and hard as nails, Saturday’s Child proves to America what the UK already knows: There’s a heart in the darkness of today’s finest crime fiction, and Ray Banks will take you there. Buckle up."―Sean Doolittle, author of the Barry-winning The Cleanup

"Ray Banks’s writing is a dark delight, and Saturday’s Child is like blunt surgery from a cricket bat. Fast, hard, packed with madcap violence and twisted humor, it’s a bone-jarring ride through England’s bleak underbelly . . . I can’t recommend this one enough."―Patrick Quinlin, author of The Takedown
