Overview

David Peace concludes his Red Riding Quartet and once again the Ripper is the backdrop for a roller-coaster of fear and corruption. Nineteen Eighty Three's three intertwining storylines see the Quartet's central themes of corruption and the perversion of justice come to a head as BJ, the rent boy from Nineteen Seventy Four, the lawyer Big John Piggott - who's as near as you get to a hero in Peace's world - and Maurice Jobson, the senior cop whose career of corruption and brutality has set all this in motion, find themselves on a collision course that can only end in a terrible vengeance. Nineteen Eighty Three is an epic tale which concludes an extraordinary body of work confirming Peace as the most innovative and remarkable new British crime writer to have emerged for years.

Peace's voice is powerful and unique' Guardian 'Quite simply, this is the future of British crime fiction' Time Out 'A triumph of sustained narrative energy that reinvigorates the British crime novel' Daily Telegraph
