A Deadly Crash....
A rainy night in south London. A gun is fired into a car, which swerves onto the pavement and plows into a bus stop. It seems that a chilling gang initiation has cost the life of an innocent victim. But the reality is far more sinister.A Dangerous Quest....
One life is wiped out and three more are changed forever: the young man whose finger was on the trigger, the aging gangster planning a deadly revenge, and the pregnant woman who struggles desperately to uncover the truth. How will she, two weeks away from giving birth, now cope in a world where death is an occupational hazard?A Shocking Twist....
In a city where violence can be random or meticulously planned, where teenage gangs clash with career criminals, and where loyalty is paid for in blood, anything is possible. Secrets are uncovered as fast as bodies, and the story's final twist is as breathtakingly surprising as they come.
"Excellent.... Billingham does for South London what Richard Price does for Manhattan's Lower East Side in Lush Life." (Publishers Weekly)
"Billingham writes sensitively and sympathetically about both the pregnant wife and the gang initiate while keeping the tension high with suspenseful plot twists." (Library Journal)

The WORST narrator ever
The reader helped a rather limp story.
No. I have already forgotten the story.
My first Stephen Hoyle and will look for more.
