1977 -post I

Having left 1974 with all guns blazing you start this not quite knowing what to expect. Clearly it is three years later but how many of the characters from the world of the first book will be around?

Although there are a few familiar faces it almost doesn't matter because this is 1977 and the Yorkshire Ripper is on the loose and that story creates it's own pace and momentum.

If anything those characters, both on the sides of law and paper, from the first book seem to be troubled by their dreams, depressed and on a booze sodden road to self destruction.

More soon...
