Every thug needs a fairy godmother

Meet Vince, a young, moody boxer from Brooklyn with an oozing bullet wound and a spot awaiting him in the Narducci crime family--if he weren't on the run...

Through a series of events that begins with Vince returning travelers' checks he's stolen from a British tourist, he finds himself in 1980s London, the epicenter of New Wave culture, unsure whether he will become a rock star, a rent boy, or a laughingstock.

Vince's journey brings an awkward friendship with a glamorous drag queen, a stint in a post-punk rock band, a frustrating romance with a Bowie-esque pop star, and bloody quarrels with a misfit skinhead--Vince's own cracked reflection.

In this quirky yet charming story of love and family and culture clash, Vince discovers his place in a rapidly changing world.

"All Harris' stand-out cast of vividly flawed and thus wonderfully human characters needs is a soundtrack!" --Nadja Gassert, author of The Protector

"A complex, richly layered story...If you ever thought a career criminal, a drag queen, and a bunch of Brits wouldn't go together, think again...Harris delivers a tale from the 1980s that proves some stories are timeless." --Anthony Bidulka, author of the Russell Quant mysteries
