I am a huge Ray Banks fan. I love the Cal Innes series and Wolf Tickets is one of my favorite stories ever. This book was definitely one of the biggest surprises of the year for me. Banks is one of the Kings of the gritty crime novel, and with Angels of the North, he shows that he has begun to mature into one hell of a storyteller. I loved the book. If you have read Banks and enjoyed his early stuff, you will be pleasantly surprised with this gem from Blasted Heath.
