Skewered and other London Cruelties
A novel by Benedict J Jones
Benedict J Jones’ novella Skewered takes us onto the mean streets of South East London. An Asian business tycoon has been kidnapped and Charlie ‘Bars’ Constaniou, just out from a third stretch in prison and stuck working in his uncle’s kebab shop, is more than ready to hand over the ransom money for a cut of the action.
But simple plans never pan out and soon Charlie is up to his neck in a crooked family feud that involves a stellar cast of misfits including a psychotic torturer and a classic femme fatale.
David Goodis meets Get Carter by the Thames in this Noir feast. Five down & dirty short stories accompany Skewered into the British capital’s criminal underbelly.
