Recommended by one of my favourite authors (Tony Black) as a classic.

The plot fizzes along as Weaver returns home to investigate and avenge the killing of his estranged son, Gordon.

The characters are well written.....hard-bitten criminals and coppers, exactly as you'd expect in a 70's thriller. Some of the scene-setting descriptive work is extraordinarily poetic.

Thanks for the rec, Tony. A great book
