Rule of Night

Trevor Hoyle

First published in 1975 and having since become a cult classic, Rule of Night pre-dates the current vogue for football hooligan books by twenty-five years. Trevor Hoyle creates a chillingly detailed world, where teenagers prowl rainy fluorescent-lit streets dressed as their Clockwork Orange anti-heroes, with a backdrop provided by Ford Cortinas, Players No.6, the factory, and the relentless struggle to maintain hope. Now with a new, fascinating afterword to this long out of print and much sought after book.

Contemporary fiction
