The much-anticipated second instalment in the highly-acclaimed Goodwins series by Harry Brett.
In bookshops Spring 2018.
The follow-up to Time to Win from Harry Brett, the most exciting voice in British crime writing.
Tatiana Goodwin has finally begun to piece her life back together after the events of the past year. Having taken over her late husband Rich's empire, Tatty has put together a massive deal to capitalise on his dirty dealings - and hopefully extricate herself from a life of crime she'd been unwillingly drawn into.
But following a suspicious fire in the firm's new HQ, and a number of unexplained deaths in the town, it soon becomes clear that there's more than one person who's after the Goodwin family assets. With her daughter in a rocky relationship and her teenage son Zach beginning to follow in the footsteps of his gangster father, everything is getting a little too close to home for Tatty's liking . . .
Praise for Time to Win:
‘The Godfather in Great Yarmouth’ – Ian Rankin
‘A tale of family and power and mayhem, Harry Brett’s Time to Win is a winner on all counts. Rivetingly told and bracingly paced, it offers readers not only propulsive storytelling but deeper pleasures —foremost, in Tatty, as rich and complicated a female character as one could hope for’ – Megan Abbott
‘Time to Win is fearsomely good: doomy and atmospheric’ – Nicci French
‘In Harry Brett, British crime fiction has its new big beast and in Time To Win, Brett has written a heart-pounding thriller for our time – a 21st century Long Good Friday’ – Tony Parsons
‘A taut and atmospheric work of Fenland noir. Time to Win exposes the seediness and brutality which so often dominates rural communities and marks out Harry Brett as a new must read author for fans of the dark stuff’ – Eva Dolan
‘It's not just a body that's washed up, but a seaside town's secrets. Gripping, compelling, original crime drama’ – Dreda Say Mitchell
‘Darkly brooding and atmospheric ... a claustrophobic combination of dysfunctional family drama and small town corruption. In Tatty, Harry Brett has created a matriarch to be reckoned with. Noir at its best’ – M.J. McGrath
‘Brilliantly atmospheric, claustrophobic, tense and gripping, Time To Win redraws the landscape of British noir and introduces a fresh and vital voice in Harry Brett’ – Stav Sherez
‘Time to Win is a tour de force – a gripping organised crime drama that feels like the start of something big’ – William Ryan
‘I loved Time to Win. Harry Brett captures the fog and mud and murk of the Norfolk coast, mixes it with a dose of violence, vengeance and warped loyalties, and turns it into a curiously addictive example of North Sea Noir’ – Julia Crouch
