Decent Ride: A Novel
‘Juice’ Terry Lawson is a man who contains multitudes: he's a top shagger, a drug dealer, a gonzo pornstar, and a taxi driver. As we ride along in Juice's cab through the depraved streets of Edinburgh, we encounter a series of charmingly filthy characters, each of whom present their own unique challenges. Has he finally met his match in Hurricane ‘Bawbag’?
Can he discover the fate of the beautiful Jinty Magdalen and keep her idiot-savant lover, Wee Jonty, out of prison? Will he find out the real motives of the reality-TV star, Ronald Checker? And, crucially, will Juice be able to negotiate life after a terrible event robs him of his sexual virility, and can a new fascination for the game of golf help him to live without a decent ride? Buckle your seatbelts and prepare for one unforgettable trip.
