Swansea Terminal

Swansea Terminal

Author(s): Robert Lewis

Location(s): Swansea

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): Modern

Swansea Terminal is the sequel to Robert’s Lewis acclaimed debut, The Last Llanelli Train. Readers of the earlier novel may be surprised to discover that a sequel exists: after all P.I. Robin Llewellyn ended the first book as a terminal alcoholic pursued by killers. Well, he’s back, but only just: as Swansea Terminal opens, Robin is homeless in Swansea, just another dosser intent on drinking himself into an early grave. He doesn’t look in any state to stagger through another crime caper as twisted as The Last Llanelli Train .. but stagger through it he does. After all, Robin is the perfect patsy, and before long Swansea’s dodgiest gangsters have found him a job – one only a chronic alcoholic with nothing to lose would be crazy enough to take. Every bit as dark, funny and oddly poignant as The Last Llanelli Train, this is new British crime fiction at its very finest.
