Follow up to the highly acclaimed The Man on the Street – ‘Fresh, original, authentic and gritty’ (LEE CHILD) ‘Jimmy is a character you root for from page one … simply superb’ – M.W. CRAVEN, winner of the CWA Gold Dagger, on 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.
