  • Gritty & Tightly Plotted

    I was really looking forward to reading this book - One Way Street - Trevor Wood's sequel to his cracking début The Man on the Street, featuring ex-naval, PTSD suffering, homeless sleuth, Jimmy Mullen, based in Newcastle. The plot unfolds well and although it took a while to become fully engaged in the story, it gradually became an immersive read. The thrust of the story is set at Christmastime, around the deaths of young victims as a result of taking a bad batch of spice. Young and homeless Deano, befriended by Jimmy and Gadge, has had a traumatic life. The reader learns of his background and family, including his neglectful mum and Ashley, his younger brother. In a novel that goes back and forth in time, Deano needs some help in finding Ashley and following up on a lead that takes him to Sunderland, it becomes apparent that a body found in a bin is his brother. As a face from the past comes back to haunt Deano, Jimmy investigates what is behind the deaths, facing dangers, relationship strains and other catastrophes. Rapidly turning the pages as various twists kept coming I was thoroughly engrossed in One Way Street. Trevor Wood's terrific writing expertly described how hard, frightening and life-threatening being homeless must be. I appreciated the character development in Jimmy, who suffers from dreadful nightmares, though he is attending group therapy sessions for the traumatised, has made some friends and has regained his self-esteem. With the gritty, enthralling plot-line, this is a great addition to the series, and Jimmy might be ready to take on a new role. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for him. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Quercus via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

  • Excellent!

    The second gritty Newcastle-set thriller in this unforgettable series about a homeless veteran turned local sleuth and vigilante. Follow up to the highly acclaimed The Man on the Street. A series of bizarre drug-related deaths among runaway teenagers has set the North East’s homeless community on edge. The word on the street is that a rogue batch of Spice – the zombie drug sweeping the inner cities – is to blame, but when one of Jimmy’s few close friends is caught up in the carnage loyalty compels him to find out what’s really going on. One Way Street sees the welcome return of Jimmy Mullen, the homeless, PTSD-suffering, veteran as he attempts to rebuild his life following the events in The Man on the Street. As his probation officer constantly reminds him: all he needs to do is keep out of trouble. Sadly for him, trouble seems to have a habit of tracking Jimmy down.
