The Late Greats

1 Mins read

New Holland was Hull’s most successful band of the 1990s and lured by the prospect of a big payday, and thanks to the machinations of their old manager Kane Major, the band are convinced to reform. One journalist is allowed to chart the progress of the return of the once famous band, and Joe Geraghty is asked to mediate with the writer. What should be a straightforward task soon turns sinister when Greg Tasker, the lead singer of New Holland, goes missing. Now Geraghty feels compelled to find out what happened to him, uncovering a long line of people Tasker had run-ins with. As events surrounding his disappearance turn more and more ominous, Geraghty must put himself in the firing line to uncover the truth. Joe Geraghty, the seemingly ordinary guy with an extraordinary job, is back. Losing none of the realistic edge to his writing, Quantrill delivers on his outstanding promise shown in Broken Dreams. With the sequel however the focus shifts away from the city of Hull a little bit, and rests more on a storyline that weaves plot strands together. A gritty slice of northern life, The Late Greats is a superb sequel to his first book. An excellent read, it works well even if you haven’t read Broken Dreams.
