Mortal Coil Summary


Mortal Coil by Anthony McGowan

There is a London you might not know. A London of dingy, pubs and brutal alleyway encounters; a seedy, seething metropolis populated by weasel-faced burglars, psychotic doormen, and professional killers with cold hearts and cruel intentions. It's a place Matthew Moriarty knows only too well. Jobless, hopeless, and half-crippled following a beating that teaches him not to insult local gangsters and then screw their wives, Moriarty is at rock bottom, left with only an ever-dwindling supply of prescription painkillers for company. And when he takes up a lucrative offer to track down a missing friend, things start to get a whole lot worse. As the search leads Moriarty into mortal danger, to the corrupt heart of the music business, one thing becomes clear: mess with this city, and it messes with you.

Mortal Coil Reviews


'McGowan's debut packs a vicious punch, turning his characters inside out en route to a finely crafted finale.' - Good Book Guide. 'A cleverly constructed tingler that will make readers want to keep the light on when they go to bed' - Scotsman. 'Explosively impressive first novel... a thoroughly modern, irresistably readable narrative' - Birmingham Morning Star. 'Articulate on the friction of class, the bonds of friendship and the power of hatred. The suspense is tantalising and the situation marries the gothic quality of a haunted house story with revenge tragedy and the peculiar ambience of British boarding-schooled males at play. An accomplished and thoughtful debut' - Manchester Evening News"
