Ged, Moby and Ratter are blaggers, old-fashioned highwaymen. But crime is out of control in Liverpool, as violent gangs fight it out for control of the drug trade. Blaggers are a dying breed...
Ged is planning a big job that will last them through the winter, and all they have to do is stay out of trouble until then - but Moby manages to get a contract on his head, and Ged is going to need all his killer instinct just to survive.
"Three crims still doing old-time blags in a Merseyside increasingly ruled by drugs and guns. Stylish storytelling"
"Real drama. A crime caper story told with a Scouse accent"

"A gripping tale... the three men emerge as men full of contradictions, murderers aspiring to middle-class respectability, henpecked husbands with several kilos of coke in the boot, and fathers who do not understand their sons... Compelling"
