Spark Out by Nick Rippington

Spark Out


Chill with a Book READERS’ Award

One a gangster, the other a soldier: War is about to change two brothers' lives forever...

MAURICE ‘BIG MO’ DOLAN is prone to headaches and there is one main cause: his family. Eldest son Chuck, 7, needs toughening up, wife Beryl is too lenient, his career-criminal father has no respect for him and his younger brother Clive is about to join the army.

There is light at the end of the tunnel, though. With Margaret Thatcher’s government backing initiative and suggesting people get ‘on their bikes’ to find work, Mo believes it is the perfect time to expand his business... into armed robbery.

As he plans the ultimate raid to drag him out of the poverty trap, he believes his fortunes are bound to get better. But with the Falklands War just around the corner they are about to become a whole lot worse...

A hard-boiled thriller that's not for the faint-hearted, Spark out is the second book in the Boxer Boys series, a prequel to Crossing The Whitewash
