The Prince of Wales

by John Williams
£8.99   paperback  Bloomsbury Publishing Plc (2004)

The Prince of Wales by John Williams
The final part of John Williams' Cardiff trilogy.
 
Female pimp Bobby Ranger feels that Cardiff is changing. Her favourite haunt, the Custom House, is about to be demolished, so she decided it's time to track down her absent father.
 
Meanwhile, entrepreneur Leslie St Clair makes his last attempt to hit the big time, but could his plans be scuppered by revelations about his less than salubrious past?
 
On his heels is journalist Pete Duke, who is fully embracing a midlife crisis and must decide whether to follow what could possibly be the story of his life.
 
And the web of fate that has captured all three leads them to a disused cinema, now a theme pub, called The Prince of Wales.

"Williams does what only the wonderful writers can do - he convincingly and vibrantly brings to life characters most of us would never know otherwise...wry, sly, then suddenly as blunt as a bottle of Breakers across the skull, The Prince of Wales did what really good novels do - it took me there."
(Daniel Woodrell, author of Ride with the Devil)
