From the Author
I loved writing Amongst Friends as it was a hugely nostalgic experience, revisiting Bristol - a city where I spent many of my formative years.
I also enjoyed the challenge of telling the story from the beginning back to the end, but this was more than a writing exercise.
I often look at adults who have ended up in bad circumstances, or who have done terrible things, and try to make myself remember that they were once children. I wonder what has happened in their past to shape their present.

Its tragic. Its heartbreaking. Its reality for far too many people. I'm not going to give away the ending but sometimes people get their just desserts.

Each chapter shows how the friends got to the final scenario bit by bit, year by year. Their characters grow and mature, affected by their family situations in every case, some for the better, some for the worse. The tragedy of life does not spare Lee in particular and as each set of situations is presented and the wrong path taken, it becomes obvious that he was battling against the odds.
An interesting, well written book, set in Bristol which is lovingly described, and with excellent characterisation. Very enjoyable.
The bang with which the story opens is matched by a denouement that I found both satisfying and credible.
