    Dougie Brimson doesn t pull his punches, not in his storeys nor in his writing style Brimson, in a nutshell, is not afraid to write the truth as he sees it Unlike a lot of authors, he s not afraid of his heroes Most authors can t resist writing a little bit of decency into their hero, but in Billy Evans Brimson has created an antihero with no redeeming features whatsoever, no nobility of mind or spirit at all The reader doesn t even like him.Can I say something nice about him He s loyal to Dougie Brimson doesn t pull his punches, not in his storeys nor in his writing style Brimson, in a nutshell, is not afraid to write the truth as he sees it Unlike a lot of authors, he s not afraid of his heroes Most authors can t resist writing a little bit of decency into their hero, but in Billy Evans Brimson has created an antihero with no redeeming features whatsoever, no nobility of mind or spirit at all The reader doesn t even like him.Can I say something nice about him He s loyal to his mate, Hawk He loves his wife and kids And he stands his round in the pub Apart from that he uses and exploits just about everybody But who is Billy Evans I ll tell you who he is Back in the 70 s Richard Allen published a cult classic on youthsploitation and the skinhead culture in East London Joe Hawkins had no morals, no principals to know right from wrong, no scruples, no decency, and he lived for violence and rape.Billy Evans is Joe Hawkins grown up, but with a difference He s got a brain Those who read the cult Richard Allen books would expect skinhead Hawkins to move into businesses with easy money Skips for instance Easy money But Billy Evans has intelligence Skips are a dirty business, and Evans likes to keep his hands clean He controls West Ham s Cockney Suicide Squad with an iron fist, but finds it unseemly to fight rival supporters himself unless he really has to And for a business he runs his own BMW and Mercedes showroom Clean, you seeHe s wealthy, has a business that ticks over nicely and gets his kicks organising violence at football matches But he s ambitious, and is ever on the look out foreasy money How about a protection racket What could be easier Billy moves into that game, providing protection for East End pubs through the very credible threat of violence Some would call it extortion Who cares For Billy Evans it s a nice little earner, and if things go wrong he can send some of his Cockney Suicide boys to sort things out.But then an opportunity comes his way almost by accident, and he tenders to run security at West Ham home matches, the irony of which is not lost on him It would spoil the story to discloseSuffice to say, though, that Billy Evans has the morals of a sewer rat, and no matter how tough the rat there s always a tougher rat in the next sewer If you want a good read then my advice is to buy this book, but let me warn you Dougie Brimson is not afraid to stand toe to toe with the reader if that s what it takes to keep you turning the page This really is a very readable with a well thought out plot

    Gritty while retaining an edge of cutting humour against a very tough environment This is a page turner which has just made it s way to the big screen in an award winning movie directed by Martin Kemp Dougie Brimson knows how to keep the reader engaged.


  4. Cathy Cathy says:

    Once you ve got past the racist and homophobic dialogue at the start of the book, it s a fast moving crims and cops story that has its roots in football hooliganism Unexpected ending.


  5. Miss Dizzy Read Miss Dizzy Read says:

    Top class, top dog Dougie Brimson certainly knows how to write a good tale,violence than The Crew but that doesn t bother me, full of excitement and yet another good ending.


  6. Karen Karen says:

  7. Paul Frost Paul Frost says:

    Just felt like the author had two stories in mind about the main character didn t know how to finish the first or how to start the second so just bundled them up together The first part of the book has an interesting twist to a pair of football hooligans attempting to turn into a respectable businessmen can they get away with it Then a short middle section oh yes they got away with it but one is happy one is bored now where do we go from here Final part takes an unexpected change Just felt like the author had two stories in mind about the main character didn t know how to finish the first or how to start the second so just bundled them up together The first part of the book has an interesting twist to a pair of football hooligans attempting to turn into a respectable businessmen can they get away with it Then a short middle section oh yes they got away with it but one is happy one is bored now where do we go from here Final part takes an unexpected change of plot which feels totally disconnected to the first part most of main characters from first part disappear the bored one does something bad which catches up with him contrived, plodding predictable end


  8. Keven Brooks Keven Brooks says:

    As far fetched as horse muck from China, but still an entertaining read Billy Evans returns from his Italy escapades in the first novel and decides to diversify his business interests set against the hooligan world of the CSS crew at West Ham A few twists and turns along the way help keep the reader engrossed in the story.
