The fourth fast-paced novel in the Nicky Burkett series, "Hell on Hoe Street" keeps up the page-turning action and deadpan humor in a multicultural tale of loyalty and revenge. All Nicky wants is a quiet life in his London district of Walthamstow.
But the peace is shattered when he learns that a good friend, Kamran, has disappeared under suspicious circumstances in Pakistan.
A true friend to the last, Nicky takes off on an international journey, only to discover that while Pakistan is certainly hotter than London, other aspects are frustratingly similar: everyone still wants to shoot him, the food s the same, and the women are just as indifferent to his charms.
But that won t stop him from saving Kamran, leading to adventures in Pakistan and back in Walthamstow, where on Hoe Street, an action-packed finale threatens to tear the borough apart."
