Born and raised in London, Pretty Boy has spent the last ten years in exile after being forced out of his hometown. He’s learned patience, and how to disappear. Now Pretty Boy is ready to get his revenge on those who need to pay for his lost years.
Meanwhile, back in the city, things have moved on. People still talk about Pretty Boy, of course. He’s a legend, more myth than man, and rumours run wild about his deadly legacy. But most think they’ve seen the last of him. He’s finished.
Someone who never gave up on Pretty Boy is Alan Pierce. The former policeman turned corrupt businessman has always lived by his own rules: stay focussed, stay one step ahead of the enemy, stay alive. Alan and Pretty Boy have history – Pretty Boy owes him everything – so when Alan finds himself fighting a drug-fuelled war on all fronts, there’s only one man he wants to turn to. But where is Pretty Boy?
Sharp, fast-paced and gripping and with a cast of unforgettable characters, A Good Night to Kill is a heart-pounding tale of justice, loyalty, and of what happens when two men turn to face the fight they’ve been trying to outrun.
"This fascinating novel, which moves almost as fast as the many bullets its characters fire at each other." - Literary Review
"[A Good Night To Kill] has the savage verve of a Jacobean revenge play." - John Dugdale, The Sunday Times
