What you need to know before your trail

In the North West criminal underworld, a deal goes tragically wrong, resulting in war between the two main organised crime factions in the region. Shockwaves rock the 30-mile gap between Liverpool and Manchester – with retired detective Brendan Foley right in the middle of it all.

For Brendan, six months after his resignation, life is all different. His marriage is a mess, he’s working as a nightclub bouncer, his brother is still missing and he just can’t stop searching for the crime family that destroyed his life. And at last, he’s found them – and he’s got them bang to rights.

Iona Madison, his one-time partner and now successor as a DI in Warrington Police, is tasked with a body pulled from the River Mersey – a teen-age boy that went missing the previous year, which might bring her own conduct into question. Not only that, Brendan is feeding her information whether she likes it or not – and his unsanctioned activities are causing her headaches.

And now, there’s a price on his head. A million pounds, dead or alive

Travel Guide

The North West underworld

The landscaoe that belongs to Rob Parker is a mash of Liverpool, Manchester and a 30 mile radius of some very gritty northern towns – Warrington and St Helens are mentioned.

This is a gripping and very gritty read – we get to see the underworld so you might not recognise the Manchster and Liverpool of your travels. Just as well – you would not want to go here.

Some locations are vague- storage facilities and river banks etc but there is a distinct North Western flair throughout.
