Revenge is bittersweet for failed musician Benny Gower.
Gower murders Birmingham drug-dealer Harry Weir and goes on the run.
Retired enforcer Wynn McDonald is reluctantly sent to track down Gower.
What ensues is a lethal cocktail of hardboiled crime fiction as well as a touching study of regret and disappointment. The action is brutal, the characters are vividly drawn, the pacing is gripping.
Aidan Thorn’s When The Music’s Over is a powerful slice of Brit Grit crime fiction that is highly recommended.
