Summertime in London, not so long ago, and the heat's soaring, the fumes are choking and the sound of sirens and car alarms is deafening. The greedy, gruesome 80s may just have finished, but everyone's still looking for an angle, dreaming of making a killing. Young Gaz dreams of being a proper crook with cool clothes. Colin Nutter wishes he could stop drinking and fathom the money making brilliance of his smooth talking boss, Dorian Savage. Dorian just wants more money, more and more of it, he also wishes Gaz would stop hanging round his detached country house, claiming the two of them were related...Savage Life is a novel of fast lives and fast food; booze and mad cow's disease; luxury yachts and Harvester Inns; hit men and urban dread. The pace is breċkneck, the plot complex, and the hilarity is dark and savage, as savage as you can get.
