9781842435021: The Damage

The sequel to The Drop, more brutal, gritty crime fiction, as David Blake struggles to keep together the crime empire he's worked so hard to build

There's a thought that keeps me awake at night; I have to be lucky every time, they only have to get lucky once.

David Blake is a worried man. He should be enjoying the high life now that he is Newcastle's "Top Boy," the man who controls everything in the city that's worth controlling. He lives in exiled luxury, while his brother Danny and trusted right-hand men, Palmer and Kinane, take care of business. The money keeps on rolling in and Blake is sharing his life with the girl that he loves, Sarah Mahoney—shame he had to murder her father to save his own skin but she doesn't know anything about that. Blake never wanted to be boss but no one else is savvy enough to deal with all of the firm's problems: the rogue drug dealer keeping too much of the take, or "The Turk," Blake's new source of "product" who's taken a million Euros as a down payment on a shipment that never arrives. Newly crowned Glasgow crime lord Alan Gladwell wants to do business with the firm, and the deal makes sense but can Blake trust the man whose brother he brutally murdered? Then there is his obsession with the beautiful but troubled Simone, who chooses to work in one of the firm's massage parlors when she is so much better than that. When one of his men takes two bullets in the back and someone tries to kill him, Blake struggles to stay in control. From the heroin-laced high rises of Newcastle to the seedy back streets of Bangkok, in a world of contract killers, corrupt politicians, bent detectives, coke-snorting footballers, fixers, hookers, and pimps, Blake is in a race against time to find his potential assassin and discover the truth.

About the Author:

Howard Linskey is the author of The Drop.

From Booklist:

A sniper terrorizing Glasgow kills four persons randomly, then hits the legendary lawman who’s after him. More than a year later, David Blake—a white-collar gangster who heads Mob operations in Newcastle—figures out the sniper murders. It’s all in a day’s work for Blake, who has taken over Bobby Mahoney’s operation after killing Mahoney and setting up housekeeping with Mahoney’s daughter, Sarah, in Thailand. As he establishes legitimate businesses to launder the money made mainly from drugs and prostitution, Blake is canny enough to handle a cheating subordinate, a former rival, and an unreliable supplier, always short of starting all-out gang warfare. But it’s a dangerous, high-stress business, and when—despite all precautions—his brother is shot and Blake himself is nearly killed, it’s time to find the traitor inside his own organization. This sequel to Linskey’s debut, The Drop (2011), is an action-packed account of a surprisingly sympathetic protagonist who lives on the edge and finds lawbreaking on a large scale “about as good as it gets” in the real world. Top-notch gangster fiction from a writer to watch. --Michele Leber
