A Punch To The Heart

Nine Stories
Nine Crimes
One County

“It’s odd the things that seem important; that can cause loss of sleep and relationships to crumble. But then fate presses its hard, cold hand into your face and you know that these worries carry no weight, are of no importance at all.”

In Andrew Humphrey’s crime stories Norfolk is more than market towns, flat landscapes, and its titular city. Here, Norfolk is a character in itself: brooding, emotionally desolate, replete with unease. Scratch the surface to find drug dealers, gangland violence, tortured relationships and misdirection. Journey with characters searching for routes out of nowhere.
