One of Us – Francis Lawn

Set in an underbelly of a London mired in drug-deals, property fraud, and betrayals, this is the tale of Kenny, returned from involuntary exile in Malaga, and compelled by a bedside promise to his dying mentor to see justice done for his old friend, Noo, who has died in suspicious circumstances. . What follows is a fast-paced, suspenseful page-tapper of a story that reads like a latter-day Long Good Friday and explores themes of revenge and redemption.
