Description

It's the hottest summer on record in Manchester, England, and down-at-heel private eye Cal Innes is struggling to keep cool. He has taken a job evicting families on behalf of local slumlord Donald Plummer, while the English National Socialists bring racial tensions to the boiling point. A firebomb attack on a Plummer property thrusts Innes into the spotlight as he rescues a child from the burning building. But when Plummer hires him to track down the arsonists, Innes finds himself dealing with more than neo-Nazis and his rapidly worsening painkiller addiction. Time's running out and the temperature keeps rising. Manchester needs a hero and Cal Innes is the closest it has. Discover why bestselling author Laura Lippman declared that Ray Banks "raises the bar for hardboiled fiction on both sides of the Atlantic."

Review quote

"Tough, funny and startlingly original, "No More Heroes" takes the modern P.I. novel to a whole new level. If you like Michael Connelly, Ian Rankin and Ken Bruen you have to read Ray Banks."--Jason Starr, author of "Panic Attack" and "The Chill ""Cal's third rough-and-tumble first-person caper should keep most readers rapidly turning pages till the solid plot builds to a payoff in late innings." --"Kirkus Reviews"
