From the creator of the Jessica Daniel series comes an all-new short story, set in Manchester.
Old acquaintances are about to be forgotten as Kitkat and his gormless mate Chris ring in the new year by popping to the 24-7 drive-thru for a bit of fried chicken.
They get more than they pay for.
As well as a grease-soaked bucket of cheap food, the server hands them a bag full of cash. But is it a mistake, where does the money come from, and can Kitkat get through New Year's Day without its owner asking for the money back?
This is a 7,000-word short story.
Plotting, high drama and characterisation are becoming the hallmarks of his thrillers
