Tommy's World

Author:

Billy Hopkins

Synopsis:

With charm, warmth and humour, Billy Hopkins tells the story of his beloved dad... Tommy Hopkins' early years aren't very promising. Born at the end of the nineteenth century in a slum district of Manchester, he's blessed with loving parents, but they don't have two ha'pennies to rub together. At school, he and his friends plot money-making schemes and play lots of football, while learning enough to keep the teachers off their backs. Then, leaving the playground behind, Tommy finds employment in Manchester's Smithfield market, where he works his way up to become a porter, and where, amongst the young women who catch his eye, is Kate Lally - who may just be the love of his life.

Pushing against the restrictions society places on a girl her age, she pursues an increasingly dangerous investigation. And watching from the shadows is a sinister figure who she believes has killed twice already, and is waiting to kill again...
