No More Heroes
By (author) Ray Banks
It’s Manchester’s hottest summer on record and while Cal Innes evicts families on behalf of local slumlord Donald Plummer, the English National Socialists stir up racial tensions to breaking point. A firebomb attack at a Plummer property thrusts Innes into the spotlight as he saves a child from the burning building, but when Plummer enlists his help to track down the arsonists, Innes finds himself dealing with more than the ENS and his rapidly overwhelming codeine addiction. Time’s running out and the temperature keeps rising. Manchester needs a hero and Cal Innes is the closest it has.
Ray Banks was born in Kirkcaldy and now lives in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. He went to school. He went to university for two years before he dropped out, something he insists was an achievement. After that, he spent his time as a double-glazing salesman, croupier – he left after the casino was ramraided by armed gunmen – and dole monkey. He thinks he’s a cult. He’s almost right.
