Hes a drug dealerMoreOur narrators too smart to tell you his name (if I [did], youd be as clever as me), but hes not afraid to tell you everything else about the layer cake-Londons intricately arranged constellation of underworld fiefdoms. Hes a drug dealer whos planning to retire on his thirtieth birthday-after one last great score-to a life as a gentleman of leisure. Only problem is his boss, the crime kingpin don Jimmy Price, has other plans. He can walk away from the life for good only if he can track down a runaway daughter for Jimmys old friend.Complicating matters are two million top-grade Ecstasy tablets that were robbed from a factory in Amsterdam by a renegade outfit in Jimmys employ who are now looking for someone to offload the ill-gotten loot. With an angry mob of German neo-Nazis in hot pursuit, and all crosses and double-crosses leading back to Jimmy, our narrator finds he may have to negotiate a new exit strategy.With a rich supporting cast of dozens of characters, Layer Cake is a gripping, linguistically inventive thriller, a cross between Irvine Welsh and Dennis Lehane that keeps you turning the pages until the very end.
