A Man Alone by David Siddall
John Doyle just wanted a peaceful life in Liverpool with his wife, Josie, and her teenage daughter, April. But when local crime boss Barry Wood and his thugs threaten April, Doyle is forced to revive the identity he thought he’d buried. Wood is a man used to taking what he wants, and soon Doyle finds himself immersed in an all too familiar war, risking everything he’s worked for. But unlike the past, this time Doyle is a man alone.
“Just when you despair of the mystery novel along comes A Man Alone which has the three essentials of great writing, a keep you on the edge of your seat narrative, and a burning intensity to the style…Highly entertaining.”- Ken Bruen, author of Purgatory.
“David Siddall’s brilliantly hard-boiled novella A Man Alone is a gripping urban western worthy of a Walter Hill film.” – Paul D Brazill, author of Guns of Brixton, Roman Dalton – Werewolf PI.
“A compact, paunchy thriller that takes a classic situation – what happens when one Competent Man won’t back down? – and adds some clever twists. Siddall writes with great skill and verve, wasting no words as he coolly maps out the route taken by his maybe-hero.” – David Longhorn, editor of Supernatural Tales.
