The King of Sunday Morning by J B McCauley #bookreview

The King of Sunday Morning is a geezer. Not in the traditional sense of the word as in old man. This geezer is a face, a wannabe, a top notch bloke. He is the greatest DJ that never was. He should have been. Could have been. Would have been. Now becoming a has-been.

Tray McCarthy was born into privilege but with the genetic coding of London’s violent East End. Having broken the underworld’s sacred honour code, it is only his family’s gangland connections that save him. But in return for his life, he must deny that which he has ever known or ever will be and runs to Australia where he is forced to live an inconsequential life.

But trouble never strays far from Tray McCarthy and eventually his past and present collide to put everyone he has ever loved in danger. He must now make a stand and fight against those that are set to destroy him and play their game according to his rules.

Set against the subterfuge and violence of the international drugs trade, The King of Sunday Morning is the tale of what can go wrong when you make bad decisions. Tray McCarthy has made some of the worst. He must now save those he holds dear but in the process gets trapped deeper and deeper into a world where he doesn’t belong.

My review:
The King of Sunday Morning is a gritty, dark tale of all things hedonistic. Tray is a child of this world. Born into a family with strong ties with the drug underworld, Tray is navigating this world and take a very wrong turn sending him spiraling downwards and careening across continents. The book is really fast paced, it moves along at a breakneck speed . You are scrambling to keep up at first but it really catches your attention and snags you from the get go. I love that the music of the King is house music, I’ve been reading a ton of rock n roll novels lately and it was a great change of pace. Not to mention I am a child of the 80s & 90s so house music is part of my musical background. Don’t be turned off by the warning label on this book, it’s a really awesome story and it doesn’t really take away from it. It is sex, drugs & house music but it’s also a fantastic cautionary tale…..because which choice you make and who you count on can make you or break you.
