THE ELEPHANT'S NEST
are hard for the Pattersons. Tom has recently not celebrated his eighteenth
birthday, when fortune smiles on him. He inherits a nightclub in a remote
seaside resort after his uncle is killed by the local mob. The family move
there, but discover that life in Seathorpe is very different.
The family soon fall foul of the local mafia
who, not content with monopolising the drug scene, also extort protection
money from all the seafront venues. The newcomers refuse to pay the imposed
levy, resulting in retaliatory action by the thugs. Randy, the young
Jamaican deejay, takes the naive Tom under his wing, but tragedy hits the
family as they attempt to fight back.
Caroline remembers Randy. She wants more of the action she enjoyed with him
on her last visit. He is happy to oblige her, only later discovering who she
really is, and the girl Tom chooses to lose his virginity with may not have
been the wisest choice.
All is not well within the gang either as a leadership challenge turns the
resort into a nightmare town when more gunmen are imported into this power
struggle. Three of the younger members hold a secret.
There are many twists and turns to this explosive, hard hitting insight
of a lifestyle that can really exist, before its unexpected conclusion.
Action packed, adult themes, and with strong language, this is not one for
