This Damnation
by Mark Worrall

Traumatised war hero Kennedy Jones' life spirals violently out of control when he joins Uncle Manny’s criminal enterprise. Involvement in a murderous plot leads to a lengthy prison sentence and the fragmentation of his family. On release, Kennedy begins to unravel the truth about his father Alec’s brutal death and Manny’s manipulative obsession with his mother Vera. Kennedy sets out to right the injustices of his life and win his family back, but will Manny’s cunning prove too much for him?

Spanning seven decades of working class London life, This Damnation is a compelling, evocative story of unrequited love, obsession and friendship with a visceral, thrilling twist. Melding the brutal legacy of war with powerful religious themes, This Damnation takes the reader on a journey to the darker side of madness where paranoia and vengefulness compete for possession of the soul with guilt and a desire for redemption.
