At Heathrow Airport’s busy immigration desk, a newly arrived Jamaican strolls through with a kilo of top-grade cocaine strapped to his body. And keeps on walking . . . By the time the syndicate get to hear about the missing consignment, D is in business—for himself—as the Front Line’s newest don. But D’s treachery will never be forgotten—or forgiven. The message filters down from the Yardie crime lords to their soldiers on the streets: Find D. Find the merchandise. And make him pay for his sins . . . Now a film directed by Idris Elba, Yardie by Victor Headley shone a light on the brutal underworld of 1990s London gang culture.

Fast paced and edgy novel that deals with the seedier parts of London. I can see this being made into a movie by Guy Ritchie.
