Nineteen Eighty-Three: The Red Riding Quartet, Book Four (Vintage Crime/Black Lizard)

David Peace


In Nineteen Eighty-Three, David Peace brings his outstanding sequence of riveting, gritty crime novels to a surprising conclusion.  With 3 separate narrators whose paths are on a collision path, Peace makes a gloomy learn of perverted justice, retribution, and concrete decay.  Maurice Jobson is a Yorkshire cop whose greed and corruption has rotted the police strength to the middle; BJ is an area highway thug who unearths he can not adequately lurk within the shadows; and John Piggott, a attorney, is as sincere and forthright as they come.  His research of a long-cold homicide could simply be the healing for Yorkshire’s woes, yet he’ll have to get via it alive first.
