The new novel from the bestselling author of Awaydays and Outlaws.

Ged Brennan’s had enough. He sees young kids making a name for themselves in Liverpool and, worse still, they’re making big money. Ged wants some of that for himself and he thinks a man of his standing is entitled to it. But, for a man of violence, he is incredibly moralistic. Ged has a righteous streak as wide as the Mersey and there’s no way he’s getting involved in clubs, drugs and topless bars. So when he receives an offer to take over the clubland empire of an executed gangster, he passes the parcel to his sex-addicted cousin, Moby. Mistake. The city council’s urban regeneration committee headhunts Ged to steer the final stages of a progressive new development. But Ged has read, with righteous horror, the scare stories about bold new plans to create a “permissive” zone in clubland -- a quarter where the sex trade operates openly and controlled use of narcotics is tolerated. The last thing on his mind is that it’ll be anything to do with him. Mistake.

What follows is an intrigue of Machiavellian proportions, with friends and relatives plotting against each other, and ready to fight to the death for what is theirs.

From the Back Cover:

“His ear for the language of the street is astounding.” -- Linda Grant
