The latest crime novel from “Wales’ answer to Irvine Welsh”.

The Last Hit is a gritty, gripping urban revenge story, set in a Welsh criminal underworld populated by assassins, drug dealers, kidnappers, prostitutes and pimps. The action centres on Al, a reluctant hitman bound to a life of killing until he can find the man who murdered his mother.

Praise for Faith, Hope & Love:
