Flank Street – The Sydney Quartet

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 viewpoint 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.

Author: A.J.

I have written as far back as I can recall. Until 2011, that writing was just for me, or as rambling letters to friends and travelogues to the family. I never thought about why, or if others did similarly, and the thought of publishing never entered my head. Since I left England in 1979, I have been collecting experiences, people, and places. From the blood-soaked streets of Kampala, the polluted dust bowls of the Sahara, or the pristine ice floes of the Antarctic, I have gathered and filed them away. Some have recently squeezed through the bars of insecurity and are now at large in the pages of my first three novels. Others await their future fates.
