This book has it all - religion, politics, violence and more; all bound up in a weighty tome. The story charts Reverend Gore's attempts to open a new church in the rough west end of Newcastle, during the transitional period of 'old' and 'new' Labour. Although the first half of the book drags a bit, stick with it as the second half speeds up with unexpected results.
'Martin man, it'll never happen.' Ball weighed in. 'That's why you're daft to get involved. Neebody wants it. More politicians clarting up the place.'
