Yes, you can grab yourself a copy of said tome for the cut-down cost of zip. That's zilch. Nill. Nada.
But what's the hook? I hear you say, I need to know if I like the sound of this ...
The City of Sin plays host to a performance-enhanced bodybuilder who
loses control with bloody consequences in Killing Time in Vegas and an
attempt to kidnap a billionaire's daughter goes badly wrong in The Long
Drop in this second collection of original short stories by Irvine
Welsh's 'favourite British crime writer', Tony Black.
how a victim of high school date rape takes the ultimate revenge and
explore the grisly aftermath of a bank job with a crew who suspects one
of their number has tipped off the cops.
stories are collected here for the first time in a 15,000-word
anthology. Killing Time in Vegas originally appeared in The Baddest of
the Bad whilst the rest of the collection featured in The Mammoth Book
of British Mysteries, True Brit Grit, Plots With Guns and Thuglit.
And there are even one or two nice folks who have said nice things about the collection:
'It is very rare that you will encounter such tight prose, strong
narrative and pitch perfect dialogue in so many offerings from the one
author. Each tale grabbed me and held me tight until the next one laid its paws on me.'
'For me the
sign of a good writer is being able to tell a strong story with a minimum of
words - Tony Black delivers both in spades with yet more of the highest quality
writing. The sense of place is excellent, the dialogue sharp & the
characters very visible.'
-Big Al's Books & Pals
'There's a great
variety in the stories beginning with the eponymous story of this fine
collection which clearly signals that these aren't going to be stories
about stereotypical villains . . . Black travels
seamlessly from the mean streets of Edinburgh via Miami to Sin City
itself, changing his cigarette brands and accent as he goes. Same high
standard, same brilliant writing.'
