From the award-winning writer of Howie the Rookie comes this blackly comic drama set in a crazed, completely re-imagined Dublin underworld, full of martial arts, rogue cops and savage low-lifes.

Paddy’s weapons of choice are baseball bats and fists. Kilby (who imagines himself as something of an artist) prefers the skill of karate, which he practises on Hughie – who just wants to break the pins of the guy who put the one-legged palmist in hospital… A dreadful accident sets in motion a violent tug-of-war between two criminal footsoldiers over the loyalty of the third. Self-loathing, guilt and loneliness emerge in this frenzied narrative, culminating in a blistering battle for survival.
