The second gritty Newcastle-set thriller in this unforgettable series about a homeless veteran turned local sleuth and vigilante. Follow up to the highly acclaimed The Man on the Street.
A series of bizarre drug-related deaths among runaway teenagers has set the North East's homeless community on edge.
One Way Street sees the welcome return of Jimmy Mullen, the homeless, PTSD-suffering veteran, as he attempts to rebuild his life following the events in The Man on the Street. As his probation officer constantly reminds him, all he needs to do is keep out of trouble.
But then one of Jimmy's friends asks for help. Someone this friend was close to but has lost touch with is found dead in a dumpster, yet another victim of Newcastle's drug culture. Jimmy knows he shouldn't get involved but loyalty compels him to try to find out what's really going on.
Sadly for him, trouble just seems to have a habit of tracking Jimmy down.

A gritty gripping thriller with a heart of gold
Loved this book. Brilliantly written with intriguing characters and a plot that romps along and twists and turns in unexpected places.
It is narrated perfectly by David Nellist.

This is a great book. As is the first in the series. I recommend reading/listening to them in order. It’s very well written. I loved the beautifully drawn characters and the story is compelling. David Nellist does a faultless job of the narration. I very much look forward to the third in the series.
