Sidney Blatter is probably the most sucessful organised crime figure in London but things are coming unstuck. Who would dare to execute his innocent brother down in Margate? And why? When Blatter attends the funeral his chauffeur disappears forcing Sid and his two minders to flee the seaside resort ignominiously in a Transit van. He sends two of his aides down to investigate further but they too turn up dead leaving many questions but no answers. Will Vince, the sharpest member of sid's firm, have any better luck or are he and Sidney about to meet the maker.

Industry Reviews

Following up Frewin's remarkable London Blues set the author (who was also assistant film director to Stanley Kubrick for over 20 years) a daunting task. Within a couple of chapters, he proves that he's pulled off the same magic: plotting that is both delirious and utterly plausible; a sleazy, fetid atmosphere (here, a fading seaside town); and wonderfully unpredictable characters. When leading crime figure Sidney Blattner hears that his innocent brother has been executed in Margate, he sets out to track down the killers. Two of his aides are murdered, and Vince, Sid's star performer, is sent down to open a very nasty can of worms. Perhaps the bare bones of the plot are warmed-over, but it's the skill with which Frewin handles his narrative that is so intoxicating. London Blues fans need not hesitate. (Kirkus UK)
