Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first installment of David Peace's electrifying Red Riding Quartet vividly brings to life a gritty, dangerous working class city tormented by a series of brutal murders.

Nineteen Seventy-Four follows Eddie Dunford, the newly minted crime correspondent for the Yorkshire Post. His first story is about Clare Kemplay, a young girl recently found brutally murdered. While the police department and other crime reporters at the newspaper believe it's an isolated incident, Eddie finds a pattern between Clare's disappearance and those of other girls from a few years earlier. Despite his better judgment, and against the advice of others, he starts to dig deep. What he finds is a nightmare of corruption, violence, blackmail, and obsession that ultimately leads to a shocking, explosive conclusion.

Synopsis:

Assigned to the story when a young girl disappears in Yorkshire, disillusioned crime correspondent Edward Dunford considers it just another story, until the girl is discovered brutally murdered--with a pair of swan's wings sewn to her back. Reprint. 10,000 first printing.
