A gang war is raging through the dark underworld of Brighton. Seventeen-year-old Pinkie, malign and ruthless, has killed a man. Believing he can escape retribution, he is unprepared for the courageous, life-embracing Ida Arnold.

In this gripping, terrifying, and unputdownable read, discover Greene's iconic tale of the razor-wielding Pinkie.
