Terry, Chris and Larry are three Irish friends in the London of the 1960's, with little in common except their liking for 'dishonest work'. Chris is a pickpocket in the West End,the time of the first race dictates what time Larry gets out of bed, and Terry's aversion to manual labour is so strong that he says 'I'd rather starve than work on the fucking buildings'. Then there's Bannaher, the big man, 'the subby', who is publicising his new pub venture by having a friend of theirs temporarily buried alive in the pub's back garden. 'A charity lie-in', he calls it.
Into the mix comes Tessa; English, blonde, mysterious, who is, as she puts it 'out to screw the world before it screws me'. Before she is finished all their lives are changed irrevocably. Terry has been to prison, Larry is a cripple, and Bannaher's empire just keeps growing. It's a tale of greed and deception that trawls the pubs and building sites of Kilburn and Cricklewood and the mean streets of Limerick.
