The day Jason Campbell bought his first pair of cowboy boots was the day his life changed for ever. For a start, there was someone who actually mattered at one of his gigs - who liked his songs, and his singing, and wanted him to be the support act when bigtime country singer Calista Shaw did her UK tour. He'd put himself back together after getting mixed up in the Phil Gator business (Frankie Bosser Comes Home), when he'd been inadvertently instrumental in getting Gator sent down for a very long time indeed. So when Teddy Peppers gets out of jail and turns up in Jason's neighbourhood, it's seriously bad news. Because Peppers has been given a job to do, and it involves doing Jason a great deal of damage ...One of Britain's brightest young crime novelists returns with a sequel to Frankie Bosser Comes Home, which combines the lives of smalltime desperation of the earlier book with a revealing glimpse of life on the road in the lower reaches of show business.
