With an Afterword by Nick Triplow
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.
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."
