What you need to know before your trail

David Blake is back in Newcastle, running three cities. Life is sweet until his bent accountant is arrested for murder. The money man is nailed on for a life sentence until he puts five million pounds out of Blake’s reach. Now Blake faces an agonising choice; fix the acquittal of a child killer or run out of the cash he needs to bankroll his empire. Meanwhile, Serbian gangsters are taking over his territory and a crazed Russian oligarch wants to use Blake’s drug supply line for his own ends. Back at home, the Police are closing in and his girlfriend is asking awkward questions.

Travel Guide

Howard’s Travel tip:

When a man claims to have information on the fate of David Blake’s long lost father, he agrees to meet my white-collar gangster but insists on somewhere public so he feels safe. They settle on the magnificent Millennium Bridge, otherwise known as ‘the Blinky-Eye-Bridge’, which lifts to allow ships to pass under it as they make their way sedately along the Tyne.
