About the Book

Revenge Grows Harsh is a story of retribution, forgiveness and the relationship between two friends from opposite sides of the tracks. It is a story of murder, drugs, money laundering and insurance fraud set largely in the grey, uncompromising streets of Manchester and in the soulless New Town of Milton Keynes. DCI Duncan investigates the brutal murder of a young man in Manchester's gay village. His inquiry takes him from the sleazy underworld of the North West to the middle class environs of Buckinghamshire, in search of the enigmatic lawyer, Alex Harris, who is connected to both the victim and suspects alike. What he finds is that Harris is not what he seems and the investigation takes him back, at breakneck pace, to his home town and a violent past. A past that is on a dramatic collision course with the present.

About the Author

Graham Heywood works as the head of personal injury litigation for a law firm in Northamptonshire, England. He was born in the inner city of Manchester and grew up in the town of Denton. He attended Audenshaw Grammar School but left before completing A levels and started work for an international insurance broker in central Manchester. In 1986, Graham relocated to Milton Keynes, in Buckinghamshire, to work for an insurance company, where he met his future wife. He subsequently joined a firm of solicitors in the town where he worked for sixteen years, during which time he was married and had two children. The author within started to come to the fore when Graham was working away from home, in Southampton, and he began to jot down rough notes for a book, based upon his knowledge of the personal injury law he had worked in for twenty years. Graham now lives in a small Buckinghamshire village with his family and basset hound and likes to spend his holiday time at the family retreat in northern France. A series of novels based on the characters in his first book are planned.
