The Crew didn't think things could ever get that bad again. They were seriously wrong. Things have calmed down for the Crew (Billy, Ellie, Della, Jas and Will) and life in the Ghetto is ticking on as usual. But things are about to kick-off all over again. The police have launched Operation Clean-up and dealers are regularly being pulled off the street and into the police station. Someone's got to be grassing them up, and soon Nanny and the Crew are getting blamed. Billy is mugged, Ellie is picked on in school, and Billy's house is being targeted. The Crew need to find out who's pointing the finger before things get really serious. As tough and uncompromising as ever, Bali's latest novel won't disappoint his army of fans and will undoubtedly win him many more. A thrilling sequel that also stands alone.
"Bali Rai's mixture of third and first-person narrative serves to heighten tension while the city scene depictions are sordid and threatening . . . a well paced thriller" -- Lesley Agnew * The Bookseller * "Exhilirating sequel to The Crew . . . unflinching and authentic" * Publishing News * "Expertly paced . . . the ending is tragic, but the energy and verbal brilliance evident on every page also convey hope . . . An author to watch out for" -- Nick Tucker * TES * "Rai holds his reader with a convincing, disturbing portrait of excluded people struggling for something better . . . a thought-provoking, eye-opening picture" * Irish Times * "A hard-hitting, totally convincing and yet strangely sympathetic tale of life on the streets of our cities today" * Carousel *
About Bali Rai
Bali Rai is from Leicester. As a Politics graduate, if he absolutely had to get a real job, he'd pick journalism. For now, he is happy to write, although he quite misses working behind a bar. However, this is more than made up for by the fact that he can now get out of bed when he likes and that nice people keep asking him to visit them in wonderful places all over Europe. Long may they continue to do so.
