The Nobody Man by Steven Jenkins
“The Nobody Man is a fast-paced read that unfurls in a filmic way with a protagonist I felt sympathy for. I was fascinated by the clinical descriptions of injuries and the ominous sense of place developed in the novel. Brace yourself to read this – it is a novel fuelled by gang violence, vengeance, racism and drugs but this should be of no surprise to anyone who reads the blurb: it’s a novel that does what it says on the tin.” – Gail Aldwin, author of The String Games.

Britain’s inner cities in the 21st century are cursed by violence and lawlessness. The authorities have lost control. Social media worships wrong-doers and turns them into anarchistic modern-day heroes. Everyday people, trapped in inner city sink estates, are terrorised into not speaking out, not reporting crimes.
Hoodlums rule the roost.
When Dan’s family are taken from him by violence, he fights back.
Vigilante? Hero? Violent criminal? Which is he? Which would you become, in his place?
Makes you think, doesn’t it?
