A gang war is raging through the dark underworld of Brighton. Seventeen-year-old Pinkie, malign and ruthless, has killed a man. Believing he can escape retribution, he is unprepared for the courageous, life-embracing Ida Arnold. Greene's gripping thriller, exposes a world of loneliness and fear, of life lived on the 'dangerous edge of things'.

Thank you so much for the extra wish list book, let me know if I can send you anything in return 😊

12 Nov 18 - This is such a famous book, my hubby originated not far from Brighton and although not a big reader he had heard of this. Having spent many visits to see family it’s fascinating to see names of places i recognise, however it’s hard to picture what it may have been like in the era this book is based. It was never going to be an easy read, gang land Brighton with such a young leader is not something you expect to read about, especially one who is prepared to do anything to reach his goal, and the ending and his thought process is quite shocking. I did find that I needed all my attention for this book though, it seemed to change tack quite quickly so that if you weren’t on it, a paragraph later you were wondering what had happened and I would have to re-read. I’m intersect to check out the film now to see how it was portrayed on screen.
