Publication: Orion, 1997, London

First edition. Precedes U. S. edition by six weeks. Author's first book. Fine in dust jacket complete with a wraparound promotional band with an endorsement by James Ellroy. Set in the Bronx of the late 1980s, we find an Irish group in the employ of the local Mafia chief as subcontractors on a construction project. Violence erupts when two brothers are pitted against each other simply because each wishes to protect his own union. Remarkable debut.
