"David Peace has joined a select group of novelists who are transforming the genre with passion and style" George P. Pelecanos
Nineteen Seventy-Four is "a bundle of spastic nerves and jumpy tempos, hard to hold in your hand but hard to put down."The New York Times Book Review
December 1980, in the harsh northern winter the Yorkshire Ripper murders his thirteenth victim: Lauren Bell. Peter Hunter, Assistant Chief Constable Hunter, struggles ever deeper in a world of sleaze and corruption to solve one of the country's most hellish crimes and finally bring an end to this bloody rule.
David Peace grew up in Yorkshire, England in the '70s and remembers listening to the hoax tape of the Yorkshire Ripper and thinking it could be the voice of his father. He now lives in Tokyo, Japan where he teaches English as a foreign language.
