Description
In his short career as Manchester's most indestructible private eye, Callum Innes has been run over by a car, beaten within an inch of his life, shot in the ear, left for dead on a desert roadside, and halfway blown up by a car bomb. Now walking with a cane, barely able to speak following a massive drug-related stroke, and mourning the death of his addict brother, Cal is a wreck. So it's a perfect time for Manchester ganglord Morris Tiernan to make his life even worse; it seems that Cal is the only person he trusts enough to search for his missing son Mo, although there's nobody Cal would like to find less. And Cal is not the only one looking for Mo—the corrupt and parasitic Detective Sergeant "Donkey" Donkin has an interest in the fate of the Tiernans, as well as a long-standing grudge against Cal himself.

"[Ray Banks] writes with harshness, humor and elegance, and his punchy dialogue teems with vigorous authenticity—though I had better warn you that his expletive count is unmatched by any crime writer I've read. This should not put you off. Banks is the real thing."—Times (London)
