Full of Money Hardback
by James Bill
Part social satire, part gripping police procedural, Bill James returns with the stunning prequel to "Tip Top".
In Bill James' London, everything seems to lead back to the drug-ridden housing estates of Whitsun Festival and Temperate Park Acres, where a connection, once made, is only ever one thing: trouble.
Trouble for journalist Gervaise Maniciple Tasker, whose investigation into the drug firms at the heart of the estates leads to his murder; trouble for Esther Davidson, Detective Chief Superintendent of the Metropolitan Police, whose job it is to arrest the killer; and trouble for Larry Edgehill, a TV producer who, by the most tenuous of links, becomes more involved with the Romeo and Juliet-esque romance between a Temperate-based TV presenter and the daughter of the Whitsun gang leader than he ever would have wanted ...Blackly humorous, at times disturbing, and always gripping, "Full of Money" is a cynical but engaging look at culture, class and crime, through the eyes of a collection of deeply flawed but fascinating characters.
