Gun law is out of control in Liverpool. Organised gangs fight it out for control of clubland and with it, regulation of the lucrative supply of narcotics. Supremacy in this violent world is short-lived as younger, hungrier and more ruthless gangs move in. Against this brutal backdrop, three south end villains pursue a dying trade.
'Outlaws' is Kevin Sampson's finest book to date: a taut, thrilling novel told in a vernacular that sizzles off the page.
