"Manchester’s answer to Lee Child"

Waterstones Arndale

Now The Killing Starts

Michael Greenhalgh’s head is throbbing.

His stomach has begun to hurt.

He can’t figure out why he’s still standing up. He’s bleeding so much, his body’s so trashed, he knows he should be falling. He should be slumping to the floor.

Three young thugs stand before him but he towers over them all. He can’t see their faces. They’re clear enough but he doesn’t take in detail for their faces must not matter. Since his nightmare began he’s not wanted to admit the ugly faces are for real. It’ll mean the bastards are going to kill him. And that will send him mad. The manimals will have won.

"I've read the new Bond book and I've read this… and this is better"

To Kill The Queen

Craig Connors stuck his foot on the brake but it was too late. As he shot from the mountain tunnel the road went AWOL to his left while he carried straight on.

To counter it he spun the steering wheel hard but hit a serious skid then heard rubber burn and saw double yellows snake crazying under him. Still the car wouldn’t tango and slewed across the hairpin, screeching blue smoke, towards a cliff.

No chance of correcting now. He smashed through a metal guardrail and headed out to where birds flew. Bits of shit cracked his windshield. Stuff pinged and peeowed as a mile-deep canyon yawned under him.

Car nosedived and Connors saw pines come from nowhere. Ripping through them, he slammed into solid rock. Felt his legs trash as the car crumpled and slid down ass first, breaking up. Engine popped from under its flapping hood. Glass shattered. Fire rolled in. He was being totalled. Stunk himself hamburger-sizzling in his own fat as the fireball ploughed through branches, taking half the Austrian cliff with it. Last thing he saw was a king-size boulder, meteorite-spinning at him CG fast before a mega whiteout topped him.
