As dodgy English towns go, Mangel doesn’t look like much, but it’s everything to Royston Blake. In Mangel, Blake is head doorman at Hoppers Wine Bar & Bistro, drives a Ford Capri 2.8i, and generally has no trouble getting laid. On any given day, he can walk the streets of his town knowing he’s respected by one and all. That is, until a rumor begins to circulate that Blake’s “lost his bottle,” and everything goes to hell. Even his best mates Fin and Legsy have heard the talk that the formerly hard-living bruiser has gone soft, lost his edge, and become a pushover in a town where he can ill afford it. To make matters worse, the Munton brothers are after him, and the thought of ending up in the back of their notorious Meat Wagon is almost too much to bear. Something’s gotta give, but it sure as hell won’t be Blake. What ensues is an outrageously bloody showdown that will leave a permanent scar on the grubby face of Blake’s beloved West Country town. Deadfolk is a brutal black comedy that introduces a wholly original voice to the ranks of literature’s most memorable protagonists. ‘Charlie Williams has come up trumps... just enjoy the ride’ — The Guardian ‘Dripping with pitch black comedy and panache... this is compelling and highly enjoyable, albeit not for the squeamish’ — The Third Alternative Download and start listening now!

    " I think a lot of readers might stop and call this a poor mans Irvine Welsh, but it has its own pleasures that make it stand on its own. If you can stand the demented mind of Royston Blake, and the heavy vernacular of the town of Mangel, there's a very enjoyable read to be had "

    " Darkly entertaining tale of a young man in a declining rural community whose life is disintegrating. Includes graphic violence and language. "

    " An interesting, and at time amusing, insight into the mind of a violent thug. "
