Summary

David Blake is a worried man. He should be enjoying the high life now that he's Newcastle's 'Top Boy', the man who controls everything in the city. He lives in luxury, the money keeps on rolling in, and Blake is sharing his life with the girl that he loves. But, when one of his men takes two bullets in the back, Blake struggles to stay in control.

Not your standard gangster fare

This is a well crafted book that I found captivating. It will not be everyone's cup of tea but good writing and plotting made this a very enjoyable listen.
