The Last Hit
Published by Y Lolfa
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:
“An absorbing fable... enjoyable and pacey”
“It made me laugh, it made me cry and I couldn’t put it down.”
P Turner, The Guardian
“The go-to author for edgy, pacey urban thrillers... Wales’ answer to Irvine Welsh.”
“A superlative plot-master; he is a messenger from the underworld whose narrative leads us through the mist.”
