Black Rose: Clear Print Hardcover Edition (Hardcover)
Existence is about survival. A continually bullied runt of a youngster, Chas Larkin discovers his chutzpah and decides to take on the London gangs. In the sleazy and violent East End of 1966 London, he is unwittingly assisted by Scotland Yard and MI5, who use the boy to delay an IRA campaign in the city. Together with the mysterious DCI Casey, an enigma amongst the bomb-damaged slums, they stir the pot of fermenting disquiet. But can Chas achieve his midsummer night's dream of total revenge? Black Rose is a story of matriarchal might, of superstition, of a lucky charm tainted with malevolent juju, and of a young man's smoldering anger and thirst for retribution. This is the clear print edition of Black Rose, with a 14pt font size for easier reading.
