SIGNED by author to title page. In white variant dust jacket, very slightly curled to spine ends and creased to upper flap. *** Debut novel by the multi-talented writer and musician Kate (or Kae) Tempest. A literary crime thriller (a drugs heist) that also gives beautiful depiction of South-East London and the hipster art and drugs scene of the early 2010s. Staff recommendation! *** The first printing was issued in two different dust jackets, one with a white and one with a black background.
