Tortured by his brutal childhood in rural Ireland, Frankie Doyle makes his living the only way he knows how – violence. Set in the twilight netherworld of London’s seedy underbelly, Lost in Shadows tells the story of a psychopathic gangland enforcer in a city where the cops are as dirty as the crooks. The debut full length fiction of the acclaimed poet, Alex O’Connell leads you on a lightning-paced, rip-roaring rollercoaster ride of violence, madness, violence, betrayal, violence, sex, violence, revenge and… well, more violence that runs the entire gamut of human emotions from A to B!
What the authors say about Lost in Shadows:
DH Lawrence: Loved it… but a bit too saucy for my tastes!
Jane Austen: What a ride! This is the gangster novel I would have written. Frankie Doyle is a psycho Mr Darcy on acid. Only sexier. I swooned.
Marcel Proust: It’s action all the way – just what I want I want in a novel. What a page turner!
Charles Dickens: S’alright, I suppose. Can’t expect much for less than a dollar.
