Now, Frank was a mild, sober man, so why did he land up dead in his car at the bottom of a cliff? Jack thinks his death doesn’t add up and decides to ask questions. But he is told to stop by Gerald and Les who run a porn ‘firm’ and Jack is their hit man. Frank did as he was told, but Jack is not like that . . . This is a tough, uncompromising novel portraying a stark society of people living on the dangerous border-line between crime and respectability.
