forgot some blurb:
"A brilliant and ambitious slice of Yorkshire Noir, BLOWBACK leaves you desperate for the third part of John Lake's Leeds 6 Trilogy." David Peace.
"This is a pulsating sequel to Hot Knife and another fine example of that newest of genres, Leeds Noir, confirming Lake to be one of the most compelling writers around. Raw, visceral, brutal, often painful to read, it delves into areas of life less honest writers fear to tread." Anthony Clavane.
It’s been three years since the events of Hot Knife, and Kelly and his partner Bea have come off heroin and moved away from their old Leeds 6 stomping ground to escape their demons and get their lives back on track.
But when Bea finds a stash of pills under her teenage son’s bed, they find themselves pulled back into a world of petty criminals, hardened villains and veterans of the Soviet-Afghan War that includes not just their dodgy old mate Denny but also Ukrainian gang lord ‘DMT’ Dmitri and a sinister assassin known as ‘The Carpenter’ . . .
