In this riveting novel of organised crime and gangland turf war, Alex Wheatle, author of East of Acre Lane and Brixton Rock, and Mark Parham return to the setting of South London for a modern day tale of inner city gang war. Harlow Briggs, an ambitious crime boss, entices two opposing gangs to work together to highjack a plane carrying contraband over the Thames Estuary. Things go disastrously wrong when Briggs is found dead and the contraband is nowhere to be found. But which side is responsible? A turbulent tale of retribution with a turf war like no other.
