Ben a vagrant? Yes Witness to murder? Yes ButKiller? No The police disagree The killer wants a word, But Ben is no fall guy & he has a gun
No More Heroes is a fast paced, crime thriller set in a dystopian world of terrorism and evil cartels .It is the first story in the HEROES series featuring the vagrant hero, Street Boy, and the righteous vigilante copper known as Wolf Girl.
On the crime ridden streets of Old London Town the law has been subcontracted and justice awarded to the highest bidder.
A brutal, senseless murder is not headline news.
A vagrant running from conscription is common place.
But this vagrant was witnessed arguing with the deceased, so now the police want a word,
As do the killers.
Ben Jackman, a 20 year old idle vagrant by day, astute hunter of road kill by night, isn’t the man to take the fall.
Proving his innocence is obvious,
And finding the killer is crucial,
But Ben needs a gun. Ben needs a big mother of a gun with a bucket of bullets, because the seedy streets of Old London Town have a new breed of criminal and they aren’t looking to take prisoners.
Roo I MacLeod was born in a bush hospital inAustralia on a hot, humid day and fought three doctors, two midwives and the utilities type person against his entry into the world (his mother’s words).
School was a bore and work a chore (his words), so he traveled. Australia by Beetle, Tasmania by bike, Europe by train and Africa by bus. The holiday ended in England when he met an English rose with hidden thorns (his words).
No More Heroes was conceived in a quaint English church when he took shelter from rain and doubled the mourners for a funeral. He was invited to pray and sing a few tunes and chuck dirt at the coffin.
He now lives in a squat in West Sussex and is barred from two of the five pubs in town and vows to antagonize the remaining four pub Landlords by the end of the year.
He has two children from a previous unsuccessful attempt to cohabit.
