Stephen Larkin is back in his native Newcastle. Working as an agency journalist, he's busy blackmailing the powerful into keeping their campaign promises. But he still feels dissatisfied - which is why he jumps at the chance to track down a child abuser with friends in high places. Cynical Larkin is automatically suspicious of people like Alan Swanson, the charismatic self-styled Minister for Youth and the man behind the 'Rebirth of the Region' project. But is his interest in the kids a chance for a photo-opportunity or something more sinister? Larkin thinks that he knows all there is to know about the evil that men do. But nothing has prepared him for this...Tough, gutsy and brutal, Little Triggers is a tale of modern city crime.
