It should be the happiest day of Billy Dye's life. His writing career has taken off and he's about to marry his sweetheart in a Scottish Castle. But the festivities are marred by the arrival of an uninvited guest. Rawhead, the world's most terrifying hitman, is back. Rawhead was Billy's best friend, until Billy murdered him. Now he has returned, crawled all the way back from hell... And soon the streets of Manchester are going to be turned into a battlefield. Praise for RAWHEAD: 'A very funny book ... I loved it' Independent on Sunday 'A novel that is wickedly funny. In fact, I'm putting Rawhead aside for a few weeks and then I plan to read it again before passing around to some of my most deserving friends' Punch
