SOMETIMES A NIGHT CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE: Carl knows this, because it happened to him.
And he's decided to start again. Soon he's free from his gang, free from the violence and theft, free to make a new start.

But it's not that easy.
As he heads towards the date of the London riots, Carl discovers that it's just not that easy to stay out of trouble. It's not easy to do what's right.

A gripping and compelling short story - only available online - featuring characters from John Lucas's critically-acclaimed debut novel TURF.
