"With old-fashioned villains, and a sharp line in dialogue, Clayton is getting better and better. This is a neat British gangster thriller written with elan and substance" Daily Mail "With strong characters, a fast pace and lots of twists and turns, this is a satisfying read, right to the shocking end" Peterborough Evening Times "If you love a gritty UK-based drama then this book is an absolute must read ... It's cleverly constructed, beautifully thought out and with a main character that the reader can't help but associate with, it's a book that really was hard to put down" Falcata Times "[Bale] has neatly captured the claustrophobic feel of a small town. He opens with a bang in Blood Falls, and doesn't let up until the end, which comes at a gallop, with the revelation that ... well, I shouldn't say. Recommended" Shots "An excellent read ... with a surprising twist that is hard to see coming" Mean Streets
