"It's summer in Leeds and the city is anxiously awaiting the Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth's reign. Detective Bob Fraser and Jack Whitehead, a reporter at the Post, however, have other things on their minds--mainly the fact that someone is murdering prostitutes. The killer is quickly dubbed the "Yorkshire Ripper" and each man, on his own, works tirelessly to catch him. But their investigations turn grisly as they each engage in affairs with the women they are supposedly protecting. As the summer progresses, the killings accelerate and it seems as if Fraser and Whitehead are the only men who suspect, or care, that there may be more than one killer at large."--Page 4 of cover

GB84 by David Peace( Book )

"1984. The miners' strike. It is the closest Britain has come to civil war in sixty years, setting the government against the people. David Peace's sweeping, bloody and dramatic fictional portrait of the year that left an indelible mark on the nation's consciousness covers a broad and unexpected canvas of characters. In his trademark visceral prose, Peace describes the insidious workings of the boardroom negotiations and the increasingly anarchic coalfield battles: the struggle for influence in government and the dwindling powers of the NUM: and the corruption, intrigue and dirty tricks which run through the whole like a fault in a seam of coal."--BOOK JACKET

The damned Utd by David Peace( Book )

20 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Boxing Day, 1962. A frozen pitch at Roker Park and the painful, premature end to a career of the era's most deadly marksman. At twenty-eight, Brian Clough has scored 251 league goals in 274 appearances. For Sunderland and Middlesbrough. How is a man to make a living? How is a man to live?" "Yorkshire, 1974. Leeds United hate Brian Clough. Brian Clough hates Leeds United. Leeds United, the League Champions. Leeds United, the country's most reviled club. Dirty Leeds, Leeds, Leeds. But Brian Clough has just been appointed the manager of Leeds United. Now Cloughie is on his way to work." "David Peace's novel shifts between and across twelve year and forty-four days in the life of a football genius to tell the story of a world characterized by a fear of failure and a hunger for success. A portrait of one of the most idiosyncratic Englishmen of the past century, and a story of the power and the paranoia that came together to shape a people and their times."--BOOK JACKET
Occupied city by David Peace( Recording )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On January 26, 1948, a public health official arrives at a branch of the Teikoku Bank in Tokyo. There has been an outbreak of dysentery in the neighborhood, he says, and he has been assigned by Occupation authorities to treat all locals who might have been exposed. The staff gathers as the official pours the first of two medicines into cups and instructs them how exactly to drink it. Within five minutes, ten employees are dead, and the official has fled. But this horrific crime is merely the catalyst for this blistering novel. It is in the twelve different voices telling the story that the narrative gathers staggering power and pathos. Each plays a part in a tangle of witting or unwitting complicity in blurring the line between truth and lies: in their own lives, in the life of their city, their history, their nation, and the newly emerging postwar world

"The Damned United tells the confrontational and darkly humorous story of Brian Clough and his doomed 44 day tenure as manager of the reigning champions of English football; Leeds United. Taking the job without trusty lieutenant Peter Taylor by his side, and with a changing room full of what in his mind were players loyal to his bitter rival Don Revie, would lead to an unheralded examination of Clough's belligerence and brilliance over 44 days. This is that story. The story of The Damned United"--Container
