Impeccable by Jameel Sandham
It’s strange. When you’re on a high, and it’s too good to be true, deep down you know shit will hit the fan. You just carry on going as if it won’t, but it always bloody does. And when it does, it all hits at once. Never splashes and spatters so you can dodge it and clean it up. No. A whole cesspit at once and there’s nothing you can do about it.
The police have raided the Whitehouse. Arlo’s been arrested. Terry wants his money.
As Tommy fights his way out of the mess, he reflects how he got there in the first place. How at university he fell in love with Isobel. How he got into electronic music, partying, drugs, festivals... How he got into dealing because the Tories slit his mum’s throat. How he earned more money than he could have ever imagined. How he lied to everyone. How he got out of control.
And he asks himself, Was it all worth it?
Of course it fucking was.
Impeccable is an offbeat British crime thriller set in Cardiff. It's fast paced, well written, violent, sexy and original. A cult classic.
A suggested read for anyone who likes authors such as: Irvine Welsh, Martin Amis, Jake Arnott, and Elmore Leonard. Those who love the cult feel of Kevin and Perry Go Large, Human Traffic, and Trainspotting will also like the cult feel of Impeccable.
