New North East Crime Fiction. Exiled from his beloved Newcastle sixteen years ago, Detective Lee Jamieson is returning home in search of the teenage daughter he's never met. The last thing he expects is to fall in love with the wife of notorious villain, Micky Kelly. Lee's new job takes him to Valley Park, an urban sink estate riddled with crime and drugs: the place he grew up, and home to the Kelly family. As he becomes more and more entwined in the lives of the Kellys, things get personal and he knows he has everything to lose. Will love save the day? Or will the criminals prevail? The Prodigal is a story of star-crossed lovers, whose worlds collide on a Council Estate where organised crime is rife, and violence, drugs and fear are the accepted currency. It is new "Geordie crime fiction at its best." Praise for The Prodigal: "Gritty, moving and totally brilliant." Linda Hill, Linda's Book Bag. "Full of twists and turns which had me speechless." Crimebook Junkie. "Hard hitting and very real." Victoria Goldman, Off-the-Shelf Book Reviews. "Full of Geordie grit and humour." Michelle Ryles, The Book Magnet

About the Author

Nicky Black writes gritty Geordie crime thrillers, set amidst the organised crime underworld of Newcastle. The Prodigal has a love story at its heart - star-crossed lovers whose opposite worlds collide. She joins a new wave of emerging North East crime fiction writers. Reviews: "Gritty and fast-paced, edge of your seat tension." "I do like a gritty crime book, and this is a great example of that." "Full of Geordie grit and humour." "Geordie crime fiction at its best!" "Gritty, warm and engrossing book, which is so much more than a crime novel." "Absolutely Brilliant a gritty true to life book I was hooked from start to finish fantastic everyone must read this book." "Anyone remember "Our Friends in the North"? Well here's another Geordie saga, bleak and fairly unrelenting, of life on a sink estate in Newcastle." "Star-crossed lovers meet on a Council estate in Newcastle. Brilliant, gritty read!" "I was absorbed from the start and found it difficult to put the book down. Gritty, hard hitting but totally believeable. I can't wait for the authors next book." "I thought this book was an excellent read. I am a huge fan of the North-East in general and I enjoyed reading a book which delved into the multi-faceted sides to the region and the interpersonal relationships between characters based around Valley Park in particular. The style of the prose was flowing, easy to read but not facile and the story was strong. Really well done, wish this author every success with future works."
