Jack Carter's Law
A Jack Carter NoveleBook - 2014
"With an Introduction by Max Allan Collins The author of Get Carter returns to his greatest invention, a smooth-operating hardcase named Jack Carter, who is about to burn a city down in order to silence an informant It's the late 1960s in London and Jack Carter is the top man in a crime syndicate headed by two brothers--Gerald and Les Fletcher. He's also a worried man. The fact that he's sleeping with Gerald's wife, Audrey, and that they plan on someday running away together with a lot of the brothers' money, doesn't have Jack concerned. Instead it's an informant--one of his own men--that has him losing sleep. The grass has enough knowledge about the firm to not only bring down Gerald and Les but Jack as well. Jack doesn't like his name in the mouth of that sort. It should be an easily solved problem for London's suavest fixer, except for one slight problem: Jack has no idea where the grass is hiding. In Jack Carter's Law Ted Lewis returned to the character that launched his career and once again delivered a hardboiled masterpiece. Jack Carter is the ideal tour guide to a bygone London underworld. In his quest to dismantle the opposition, he peels back the veneer of English society and offers a hard look at a gritty world of pool halls, strip clubs and the red lights of Soho nightlife"-- Provided by publisher.
