Stars are Stars by Kevin Sampson

Book Description

Fifteen-year-old Danny has just one dream: to be an artist. Living in Toxteth, with his mother and five sisters, Danny meets clever, politically aware Nicole and falls in love. But when Thatcher's government withdraws the Liverpool Art School's funding, Danny slides into apathy, robbing and drug dependency. Nicole and Danny's love affair, played out to a soundtrack of Bowie and Joy Division, is grand, romantic and doomed. Then Danny finds himself sucked into the longest, most exhilarating and frightening day of his life. Set on fire by rioters, Toxteth is ablaze. Danny, transfixed, starts to paint versions of the same picture, over and over again...Can Nicole bring him back from the edge?

Hillsborough Voices by Kevin Sampson Hillsborough Voices, Paperback (February 2017)

On 15 April 1989, the world witnessed one of the worst football disasters in history occur at the Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield. 96 people were crushed to death and 766 injured in a tragedy that was later admitted to have been exacerbated by police failures. This book aims to do justice to the memory of those who died and those left behind.

House on the Hill by Kevin Sampson House on the Hill, Paperback (August 2015)

DCI Billy McCartney has gone to ground, disillusioned with his job. When a runaway turns up on his doorstep, her story plunges Mac back to the summer of 1990, and one of his most traumatic cases. McCartney and his partner DS Millie Baker are in Ibiza, on a joint venture with the Spanish serious crime agency.

Killing Pool by Kevin Sampson Killing Pool, Paperback (August 2014)

Detective Chief Inspector Billy McCartney discovers a headless corpse in the scrubland close to Liverpool docks. The slaying carries all the hallmarks of a gangland hit - a message from the underworld to snitches, cops and rival gangs. One mile away, a girl staggers into a run-down bar, dazed and confused.

Extra Time by Kevin Sampson Extra Time, Paperback (November 2012)

Any serious football fan will know, anyone who doesn't go to every game, home and away, from Arsenal to Vladikavkaz is a part-time supporter. The author gets to 90 per cent of Liverpool's matches. In this title, he relates his journeys that take us from a pre-season friendly at Crewe to Chelsea, Celtic, Newcastle, and beyond.
