I bring you news!
The official release date for Book #3 in the Paterson and Clocks series is the 7th of December. It’ll only be available in the Kindle format at time of release. The paperback will follow shortly.
I’ve gone a little bit old school on this one in terms of its content but believe me when I tell you that one of the villains is seriously…different!
If you haven’t already read them, the first two books in the series can be found here and will help you get to know the characters and backstory a bit better.
Here’s the blurb:
On the streets of London, a simmering gang war is about to erupt.
It’s first casualty, tied to a stake and burned alive, is Davey Caine, the only son and heir to the criminal empire created by his father, William ‘Billy’ Caine. Billy is a notorious and violent gangster with total control of south-east London. But he’s not the man he used to be and the sharks smell blood in the water.
Albert Tanner, A one-eyed psychopath with delusions of grandeur and a flair for the theatrical, rules the east end of London with a rod of iron and kills without conscience in a very particular and brutal way.
Both men have seen the future and they know that the Albanian Mafia, with control over the north and west, will soon look to expand into their territories. A take-over is coming but are the Albanians really the threat they’re made out to be, or is it someone closer to home?
As the streets explode into violence and the body count starts, men are shot and burned alive in a tit-for-tat game of power. Caught in the middle, Detectives Ray Paterson and Johnny Clocks find themselves trying to control men of extreme violence. Men who have no fear of the law and its consequences and unafraid to kill anyone who stands in their way – including them.
Under pressure and desperate to stop the killings, Paterson is stunned when he’s suddenly offered the chance to stop it dead in its tracks. If he ignores it, the killings continue. If he takes it, there’s a price to pay. What he doesn’t know is that the price will come with hidden and devastating consequences.
In the end, power is everything and when this war is over, the only winner will be the one with nothing to lose.
And, here’s the cover.
