The King of Sunday Morning is a geezer. Not in the traditional sense of the word as in old man. This geezer is a face, a wannabe, a top notch bloke. He is the greatest DJ that never was. He should have been. Could have been. Would have been. Now becoming a has-been.
Tray McCarthy was born into privilege but with the genetic coding of London’s violent East End. Having broken the underworld’s sacred honour code, it is only his family’s gangland connections that save him. But in return for his life, he must deny that which he has ever known or ever will be and runs to Australia where he is forced to live an inconsequential life.
But trouble never strays far from Tray McCarthy and eventually his past and present collide to put everyone he has ever loved in danger. He must now make a stand and fight against those that are set to destroy him and play their game according to his rules.
Set against the subterfuge and violence of the international drugs trade, The King of Sunday Morning is the tale of what can go wrong when you make bad decisions. Tray McCarthy has made some of the worst. He must now save those he holds dear but in the process gets trapped deeper and deeper into a world where he doesn’t belong.

Review – Don’t let the warning about language, drug use, and sex scenes scare you away. The King of Sunday morning was an excellent read. I did spend a little time in the club scene in the 90’s so it was a little reminiscent but you didn’t have to experience any of that to enjoy this book.
We follow Tray over decades of his life. He doesn’t always do what’s right – okay, hardly EVER but he is extremely likeable and as with any good book you really understand his choices because you are in his head. The plot was very well thought out and there is even a love interest.
This would make a FANTASTIC movie, it would be right up there with Reservoir Dogs, Fight Club, etc…
If you plan to pick this up, let me warn you it may be a tad confusing in the beginning but still with it. It is well worth it!
I will be following this author for future works.
I received a copy of this book for my honest review, no other compensation was received.
