Part social satire, part gripping police procedural, Bill James returns with the stunning prequel to "Tip Top".
In Bill James' London, everything seems to lead back to the drug-ridden housing estates of Whitsun Festival and Temperate Park Acres, where a connection, once made, is only ever one thing: trouble.
Trouble for journalist Gervaise Maniciple Tasker, whose investigation into the drug firms at the heart of the estates leads to his murder; trouble for Esther Davidson, Detective Chief Superintendent of the Metropolitan Police, whose job it is to arrest the killer; and trouble for Larry Edgehill, a TV producer who, by the most tenuous of links, becomes more involved with the Romeo and Juliet-esque romance between a Temperate-based TV presenter and the daughter of the Whitsun gang leader than he ever would have wanted ...Blackly humorous, at times disturbing, and always gripping, "Full of Money" is a cynical but engaging look at culture, class and crime, through the eyes of a collection of deeply flawed but fascinating characters.
