Synopsis

THE NOVEL BEHIND THE CULT FILM STARRING MICHAEL CAINE Doncaster, and Jack Carter is home for a funeral - his brother Frank's. Frank's car was found at the bottom of a cliff, with Frank inside. He was not only dead drunk but dead as well. What could have made sensible Frank down a bottle of whisky and get behind the wheel? For Jack, his death doesn't add up. So he decides to talk to a few people, do some sniffing around. He does, but is soon told to stop. By Gerald and Les, his bosses from the smoke. Not to mention the men who run things in Doncaster, who aren't happy with Jack's little holiday at home. They want him back in London, and fast. Now Frank was a mild man and did as he was told, but Jack's not a bit like that ...

Ted Lewis was born in Manchester in 1940, and died prematurely in 1982 having published seven novels and written several episodes for the television series Z Cars. His first novel All the Way Home and All the Night Through was published in 1965, followed by Jack's Return Home in 1970. This was subsequently retitled Get Carter after the success of the film of the same name starring Michael Caine. The book created the noir school of British crime writing and pushed Lewis into the bestseller list.

NINETEEN SEVENTY-FOUR: Jack’s Return Home by Ted Lewis, now more widely known and reprinted as Get Carter after the brilliant film adaptation, directed by Mike Hodges. But as great as the film is, and particularly its Geordie locations, this novel is still worth reading if only for the fact it is set in Doncaster: Original (South) Yorkshire Noir.
