by John B Spencer
A Runyonesque tragedy of manners set in a west London populated by a cavalcade of users, abusers and three-time losers. Stitch is John B Spencer at his very best.
Stitch is an atmospheric and gritty tale of lowlifes and those whose lives they touch. It is Spencer’s seventh novel and the third in the acclaimed ‘London’ trilogy, following Perhaps She’ll Die and Tooth & Nail. All are available as paperback originals from The Do-Not Press, as is Quake City, a Charley Case adventure set in the Los Angeles of the near-future.
Praise for John B Spencer’s ‘London’ crime novels:
“Yet another demonstration that our [British] crime writers can hold their own with the best of their American counterparts. snappy dialogue. the pace of a rabbit at a rave. Recommended.” – Time Out
“Spencer updates the noir tradition. threats of action that smoulder until you’re ready to scream.” – Kirkus Reviews
“Spencer’s previous novels have been compared to Elmore Leonard but Spencer has a distinctive voice of his own. The dialogue crackles with electricity and the characters have an energy that leaps off the page. Go out and buy it!” – Shots
