I took a different approach to writing Flank Street than I did to writing other books. I wrote the last page first, called it a prologue, and then worked out how the MC would get there. It was fun and the writing went fast.
It’s written in first person from the view of Micky DeWitt, a shiftless criminal. Micky arrives in Sydney by boat, broke and on the lookout for opportunity. After taking a job as barman in a Kings Cross pub, he’s eventually approached by a high-end escort who needs something stolen.
Nothing is what it seems, as Micky falls into a honey trap that spins his life out of control. Some characters from Heather make an appearance, including Mitchell, and the enigmatic Ray Peterson.
