London in the late 1980s – the era of Thatcherism and Loadsamoney – is an exciting but sometimes dangerous place to live. Fitzroy Maclean Angel gets by partly through gigging as a jazz trumpet player, partly through taking illegal fares in his de-registered black taxi cab, and partly through … well, just being in the right place at the right time. And, as he often says himself, it's better to be lucky than good. In Just Another Angel, his debut escapade, the streetsmart Angel meets a beautiful and enigmatic blonde – and that's just the start of his troubles. Hotly pursued by a jail-bird gangster and his thuggish henchman, a maverick cop bent on revenge, and a dogged Inland Revenue inspector, he finds his life becoming more complicated by the minute. And just how an emerald pendant, a women's peace camp and a wad of French francs fit into the picture, he can hardly imagine… Back in print for the first time in a decade are the first three titles in Mike Ripley's acclaimed 'Angel' series of comic crime novels. Each title is handsomely packaged and contains an specially-written introduction by the author.
