Editorial Reviews

Review

"The dialogue is short, sharp and terse, with just the right amount of street talk to make Flank Street a compelling read for fans of hard-boiled crime fiction. Five stars." Awesome Indies Reviews.

"Rich in detail, Flank Street is so skillfully written, that it hooked this reader, despite lacking a subplot that might have allowed the writer to vary the pace. We never do find out what was Micky's back story as the writer withholds this information from us, but that just adds, rather than detracts from the mystery." Amazon reviewer.

"Micky Dewitt has a Jason Statham feel about him. He is crooked as hell but there's a side to him that's passionate about what he does. Whether this is good or bad, the reader decides. If you have seen Parker, The Expendables or The Bank Job, you will gulp this book in one seating." Amazon reviewer.

From the Author

I took a different approach to writing Flank Street: I wrotethe last page, called it a prologue, then set the main character loose to findhis way there. It was fun, and the writing went quickly. I didn't edit orreview until the book was complete, I just bashed out 2000+ words a day tryingto keep up with the twists and turns.

I didn't set out to write about Micky, or Carol, come to that... but this is how it happened.
The rain was falling steadily, running down the small, below ground-level window, which is the only source of natural light in the boiler-room where I write. For some obscure reason it reminded me of a rain-soaked street in Sydney, Australia; a street I've walked down many times, both wet and dry.
As I held that image in the back of my eyelids, a man appeared. Yellow streetlights reflected from the wet tarmac; he walked in the shadow of the plane trees, pulling his hood up against the unrelenting rain. He stopped, leaned against a tree, and waited. Right at that moment, I knew what I had to do.
I didn't know Micky, but I've known guys like him, and so his character was soon defined; a grifter that could never amount to much without living in the shadows.
I hope you enjoy reading Flank Street, I certainly had fun writing it, and missed the daily interactions with Micky and Carol when it was finished. And I hope that one day I can sit and have a drink with them again... one day.
