What you need to know before your trail

JT Ellington hears these words and immediately embarks on a the case of tracking down a local GP with a dubious reputation and getting back a set of stolen documents. Seems quite straight forward at first.

Ellington, however, finds that things are rarely straightforward. Dr Fowler is gunned down outside a Bristol pub but not before uttering some frightening words to JT, seconds before he dies. What he hears shocks JT and he just knows that you can’t ignore the words, the warning, the advice of a dead man. No matter how uncomfortable it might be.

Travel Guide

St Pauls Bristol

1960s Bristol was  a cruel world indeed in many respects. It’s certainly a racist one and one where if you’re from Barbados or another community, and settle here, you’re going to find problems settling in.

Ellington, a former Barbadian police detective turned private investigator lives in the centre of the city and discovers its various dark corners by the cases he investigates.

J T Ellington is  part of the exodus from the Caribbean to Britain which took place in the late 50’s and early 60’s. .To see the city and its people through his eyes is one unique view indeed.

As Ellington gets more and more involved in the case, and is on the run, he flees out of Bristol for a while. It’s the chase which you know the truth about, but which from the outside, you would possibly judge him as the others in the novel do.

Bristol has some good pubs and haunts and a large and passionate community with people like T Ellington at its heart.
