The Final Mile
A man who has lost everything. Push him a little further. And he’s going to fight back… Ryan Morgan is a good guy, a family man who runs his own business and lives by the rules. But when his business is liquidated, his house repossessed and his wife leaves him, Ryan starts to question the system. For years, the rich have ripped us off. It’s time someone made them pay.
Seeking payback, Ryan treks cross-country through a broken Britain menaced by an economic crisis. With nothing left to lose, Ryan cuts a brutally sweet swathe through the murky greed and corruption of bankers, CEOs and politicians whose skewered morals and hypocrisy have crippled a nation. A stunning tale of morality and justice in which a simple, honest man is transformed into a killer, The Final Mile depicts a moral turnaround in the vein of TV’s Breaking Bad.
A story ripped from the headlines of tomorrow’s newspapers. A biting social commentary of both the jobless hordes and the glitzy, gold-plated world of dirty deals and fat cat cronyism. A resonant wish-fulfilment thriller that is cinematic and sparse genre writing at its very best. With nods to Richard Stark, Elmore Leonard and George Pelecanos, Cal Smyth has written a tale of revenge that challenges and entertains in equal measure: a blazing read that burns off the page, righteous indignation rippling through every heart-stopping moment.
