Published in North America for the first time the final novel featuring Jack Carter ("Get Carter," "Jack Carter's Law") has London's slickest operator journeying to a Spanish villa to protect a wise-cracking Italian-American mobster.Jack Carter is not thrilled when his frustratingly unprofessional employers London mob kingpins Gerald and Les Fletcher force him to take a vacation. Jack doesn t like leaving the business in other people's hands, but the company villa in Spain promises sunshine and some time to plot his next move. Jack soon finds he is on anything but a vacation. The villa is already inhabited by a cowardly house steward and a knuckle-dragging American gangster. Jack has apparently been sent to protect the American, who has turned informant. There are few things that Jack Carter hates more than surprises. Informants being chief among them.

About the Author


Born in Manchester, England, Ted Lewis (1940-1982) spent most of his youth in Barton-upon-Humber in the north of England. After graduating from Hull Art School, Lewis moved to London and first worked in advertising before becoming an animation specialist, working on the Beatles "Yellow Submarine." His novels are the product of his lifelong fascination with the criminal lifestyle of London s Soho district and the down-and-out lifestyle of the English factory town. Lewis' novels pioneered the British noir school. He authored nine novels, the second of which was famously adapted in 1971 as the now iconic "Get Carter," which stars Michael Caine."

Praise For…


Praise for Ted Lewis

"He is an example of how dangerous writing can really be when it is done properly, and Ted Lewis’s writing proves that he never ran away from the page. Because with Lewis, the page was the battle.”
—Derek Raymond, author of He Died with His Eyes Open

“Ted Lewis is one of the most influential crime novelists Britain has ever produced, and his shadow falls on all noir fiction, whether on page or screen, created on these isles since his passing. I wouldn’t be the writer I am without Ted Lewis. It’s time the world rediscovered him.”
—Stuart Neville, author of The Ghosts of Belfast

"When it comes to dealing with your actual hard man, no one does it better than the late, great Ted Lewis."
—John Williams
