This is the gripping story of three London cabbies masterminding a complex scam to outdo the hot-shot city slickers on the stock market. Using information they overhear from indiscreet clients, they have already amassed a tidy sum, but this could be the big one.

Product Description:

Black Cabs

Review:

It's hardly surprising that John McLaren has already sold the film rights to Black Cabs (along with his earlier Press Send), as this powerful thriller moves with the velocity of an action-packed movie. Using three London cabbies as his protagonists, the uncompromising picture of London life on both sides of the river is idiosyncratic and astringent.

When three cabbies attempt to make a killing on the stock market by eavesdropping on the plans of a corporate magnate to engineer a huge take-over, they find they have taken on the sinister might of international banking community. The beleaguered heroes, Len, Terry and Einstein, soon find the sharp suits they are up against have no scruples about using extreme violence to protect their interests--a top financial executive is discovered dead in the back of a cab, and the boys are forced to investigate a monumental cover-up. A further turn of the screw is provided by Len's desperation for the money--on which his daughter's life depends.

McLaren, who was once a banking director, has an insider's knowledge of the financial world and is particularly cutting when it comes to fiscal shenanigans: "the predator has to join in the auction or walk away beaten. In the testosterone-ridden, ego-filled world of big business, succeeding with a hostile bid is one of the most admired martial arts". --Barry Forshaw
