Praise
"Versatile English author Brooks (MARTYN PIG; LUCAS) infuses his latest tale with a romantic--even mythic--grandeur sure to enthrall his fans...This story's gritty street smarts will keep thrill-seekers more than entertained, while Joe's orphic rescue mission into the netherworld of addiction gives more thoughtful readers plenty to ponder."
"[P]rovocative, suspenseful...Joe's alternately love-drunk and rueful voice will keep readers engrossed...."
From the Publisher
Annotation For 15-year-old suburbanite Joe, one small trip to London results in an intense, fatal love of the delectable Candy, a young, heroin-addicted prostitute dominated by Iggy, her cruel, frightening pimp. Joe can't get her out of his mind, and writes a song for her that takes him back to London with his band. Obsessed, his feelings begin to reflect the high and low pitches of Candy's addiction. But her terrifying world--a place of destitution, violence, and narcotics--doesn't get in the way of Joe's desire to save her.
