The Jack Carter Trilogy. Jack Carter’s Law. Jack Carter and the Mafia Pigeon. Jack Carter’s Law is not for the faint-hearted crime fiction aficionado, and for the American fan, the experience can be challenging, as Lewis immerses us not only in the milieu of the London underworld of the late ’60s, but in its pungent slang as well. I have a hunch that even readers in the UK might need some help here.
Jack Carter's Law is a 1974 British crime novel written by Ted Lewis. It is a prequel to Lewis' best known work, Jack's Return Home which was adapted into the film Get Carter in 1971. On Christmas Eve, Jack Carter learns that a supergrass is about to inform to the police and put him and his associates away for lengthy prison sentences. Carter attempts to hunt down the informer, but it proves a far more dangerous task than he anticipates.

In his quest to dismantle the opposition, he peels back the veneer of English society and offers a hard look at a gritty world of pool halls, strip clubs and the red lights of Soho nightlife. Many years ago I read the excellent novel Jack's Return Home by Ted Lewis, which became the classic film Get Carter in 1971. It was only recently that I realised he had written two other books featuring Carter. Lewis writes good, hard hitting prose & it was great to see this prequel back in publication.
