Mystery & Crime Fiction

The Only Game in Town by Peter Black

The men who run Oldport are corrupt, arrogant and unchallenged. What must happen to loosen their grip on the town? Harry O’Leary has been leader of Oldport Council for nearly twenty years. Together with local nightclub owner and developer John Baker he has the whole town in his pocket, and both have profited handsomely from it. Frank McColgan is a local institution. He is the landlord of the Prince Albert, a pub in the town’s harbour area, a meeting place for local movers and shakers and the favoured drinking hole for journalists at the Oldport Observer and their eccentric editor, Jerome Wilson. When Billy Jones arrives looking for his journalist brother, he finds a berth at the Prince Albert, and together with barmaid Jeanie Carter becomes entangled in some of the town’s less-than-scrupulous affairs. What they discover will shake up Oldport. Will things ever be the same again?
