In his short career as Manchestera€™s most indestructible private eye, Callum Innes has been run over by a car, beaten within an inch of his life, shot in the ear, left for dead on a desert roadside, and halfway blown up by a car bomb. Now, mourning the death of his addict brother, walking with a cane, and barely able to speak following a massive drug-related stroke, Cal is a wreck. Enter Manchester ganglord Morris Tiernan to make his life even worse. Tiernana€™s nea€™er-do-well son Mo has gone missing, and Cal Innes is the only person the distraught gangster trusts enough to conduct the search. Therea€™s nobody Cal would like to find less, but you dona€™t say no to Uncle Morris. And it turns out that Innes is not the only one working the case a€” the corrupt and parasitic Detective Sergeant a€œDonkeya€ Donkin has a vested interest in the fate of the Tiernans, as well as a long-standing grudge against the intrepid private eye. In this fourth and final installment of the Cal Innes series, our hero gives up acting as a pawn in Manchestera€™s underworld disputes. He has his own burdens to bear and scores to settle a€” with the Tiernan family, with Sergeant Donkin, and with the darkness in his own past.Franka#39;s set up shop in a light blue Ford Fiesta, barely visible in the darkness opposite Mrs Sadlera#39;s house. ...
