With an introduction by Iain Sinclair
Sacked from his job in a car factory, Jim Bankley joins a gang of wide boys. He is soon earning good money, moving between Soho and the White City dog track. Life is sweet. But when boss Bill Franks is locked up after a fight with the Gisburg mob things start to change. This is a lost gem from Robert Westerby, right up there with the finest London street fiction.
