‘Kevin Doyle was thirty-one years old and a complete waste of space...'Kevin Doyle, a small-time loser, supplements his income from benefits with some thieving and the occasional bit of driving for ‘certain people'. One sunny day Kevin decides on a whim to go fishing for the first time in years - a decision that will change, and endanger, his life. When he hooks more than he bargained for in the lake, he thinks he's got lucky, but life has other plans for him. His discovery sets off a chain of events that culminates in blackmail, torture and multiple murders!Les Clarke's first novel is a page-turning, action-packed crime thriller whose twists will keep readers guessing.

Les has played in rock bands, sold everything from shoes to double glazing. He's been a policeman, trainee train driver, a chauffeur, a weighbridge operator, an office manager, a builder, worked in a psychiatric hospital, been a stand-up comedian and actor and now writes and directs plays. This is his first novel.

    A great read from a new author. There are twists and turns throughout so much so that it is almost impossible to put down as you just need to know what happens next. It's very easy to visualise some of the most prominent characters and either sympathise with them or despise them! I hope there are further novels in the pipeline.

    This story gripped me from start to finish. The characters felt real and interesting, and the plot takes said characters on a roller coaster ride that reminds us all why you don't mess with the wrong people! I could well see this novel being adapted into a high quality BBC drama. I look forward to this author's next book.
