Jack's Return Home by Ted Lewis, a pretty well known series, I only recall Jack Carter and the Mafia Pigeon of the top of my head, it was pretty darn good an all. You MUST MUST MUST watch the Mike Figgis GET CARTER, with Michael Caine it is one of the finest, noirest (sorry!), and hard boildest films there has ever been, has a superb soundtrack (Lalo Schiffrin????) and will probably guarantee you never ever visit Newcastle in your entire life!
