Cast-Iron Men

Cast-Iron Men

Author(s): Dominic Kearney

Location(s): Liverpool

Genre(s): Crime, Thriller

Era(s): Modern



A tense, pacy, violent crime thriller, Cast-Iron Men looks beyond the gloss of Liverpool’s status as City of Culture, as two tough and vulnerable female reporters gun for the big fish who think they run their small pond. Brutal murder and corruption are the norm: power is the prize: truth is the first victim. A native of the city, author Dominic Kearney brings Liverpool to life on every page of this powerful and gripping novel.
