1974 - post III

It would totally inappropriate to give away the ending but It is fair to say it is a surprise. It would be tempting to describe it as a shocking surprise but by now very little shocks in the world described by David Peace.

The world that he describes is brutal and corrupt and destroys people and by default communities. There are no winners just bigger criminals and blaggers able to play the crooked system. Those searching fir truth are destroyed by the sheer extent of the corruption. This is a world that you hope was left behind in the 1970s but you are left with the gnawing doubt that he is half warning us of what might and could be happening today out there hidden behind police station doors and the entrances to luxury homes.

A review will come soon...
