Famously adapted into the iconic film starring Michael Caine, Get Carteróoriginally published as Jackís Return Homeóranks among the most canonical of crime novels.

With a special Foreword by Mike Hodges, director of Get Carter

Itís a rainy night in the mill town of Scunthorpe when a London fixer named Jack Carter steps off a northbound train. Heís left the neon lights and mod lifestyle of Soho behind to come north to his hometown for a funeralóhis brother Frankís. Frank was very drunk when he drove his car off a cliff and that doesnít sit well with Jack. Mild-mannered Frank never touched the stuff.

Jack and Frank didnít exactly like one another. They hadnít spoken in years and Jack is far from the sentimental type. So it takes more than a few people by surprise when Jack starts plying his trade in order to get to the bottom of his brotherís death. Then again, Frankís last name was Carter, and thatís Jackís name too. Sometimes thatís enough.

Set in the late 1960s amidst the smokestacks and hardcases of the industrial north of England, Get Carter redefined British crime fiction and cinema alike. Along with the other two novels in the Jack Carter Trilogy, it is one of the most important crime novels of all time.
