Time to Win by Harry Brett

'The Godfather in Great Yarmouth' Ian Rankin

'An atmospheric and riveting tale' Guardian

* * * * * The Sun

'Harry Brett writes a fun plot with witty elegance' The Times

When local crime boss Richard Goodwin is pulled from the river by his office it looks like suicide. But as his widow Tatiana feared, Rich collected enemies like poker chips, and half of Great Yarmouth's criminal fraternity would have had reason to kill him.

Realising how little she knows about the man she married, Tatty seeks to uncover the truth about Rich's death and take over the reins of the family business, overseeing a waterfront casino deal Rich hoped would put Yarmouth on the map.

Out of the shadows at last, it is Tatty's time now, and she isn't going to let Rich's brother, or anyone else, stand in her way. But an American has been in town asking the right people the wrong questions, more bodies turn up, along with a brutal new gang. The stakes have never been higher.

With her family to protect, and a business to run, Tatty soon learns that power comes with a price . . .

The Godfather in Great Yarmouth

In Harry Brett, British crime fiction has its new big beast and in Time To Win, Brett has written a heart-pounding thriller for our time - a 21st century Long Good Friday

Darkly brooding and atmospheric . . . a claustrophobic combination of dysfunctional family drama and small town corruption. In Tatty, Harry Brett has created a matriarch to be reckoned with. Noir at its best

It's not just a body that's washed up, but a seaside town's secrets. Gripping, compelling, original crime drama

Time to Win is fearsomely good: doomy and atmospheric

'A tale of family and power and mayhem, Harry Brett's Time to Win is a winner on all counts. Rivetingly told and bracingly paced, it offers readers not only propulsive storytelling but deeper pleasures - foremost, in Tatty, as rich and complicated a female character as one could hope for

A taut and atmospheric work of Fenland noir. Time to Win exposes the seediness and brutality which so often dominates rural communities and marks out Harry Brett as a new must read author for fans of the dark stuff

'Brilliantly atmospheric, claustrophobic, tense and gripping, Time to Win redraws the landscape of British noir and introduces a fresh and vital voice in Harry Brett
