Blade is back in the big city. Back where the trouble started. A bad place to live. And a worse place to die. He never meant to return. But there are things he's got to put right. Things that matter. So now it's getting rough. And the stakes are high. Book three in the unmissable Blade series.
Blade is back in the city he hates and fears. His enemies have taken Jaz, the little girl who has become the centre of his life, and he knows they've brought her here. He has to get her back - but enemies lurk in every shadow and the police are hunting him too. Blade will only have one chance to rescue Jaz and it will take all his nerve and skill. He can't mess this up ...Previously published in two parts as Blade: Fighting Back and Blade: Mixing It, this is a stunning new package for this groundbreaking series. Narrated by Blade himself, be prepared to enter his world. It's not pretty ...it's urban, real and dangerous. As Blade's story unfolds, readers will become completely hooked by this unforgettable character.
