Vinnie was classified as criminally insane by the time he was 25. He is proud to be a Canterbury warrior. Proud to be mad!
Vinnie did his first stint of 'time' at the age of thirteen. From then and for the next twelve years, he has only ever had one Christmas outside of jail. He enjoys inflicting pain on man, woman or beast. In his mother's eyes, Vinnie is a victim. He is hounded by the police for everything that goes down on the run down council estate in Bradford, that is Canterbury estate.
Vinnie's older sister is a junkie with three kids. She will stop at nothing to feed her habit, including dealing and prostitution. His younger sister idolises Vinnie. Without realising, she becomes the reason that her brother's crimes escalate to the extent that he is classified as criminally insane.
Set in the 1970's and 80's this story tells the tale of the Canterbury Warriors. Rulers of an estate where drink, drugs and fighting are the norm. The estate that fiercely protects it's residents, yet hiding among them skulk predators of the lowest ilk. When these people are discovered, they can only pray that the police get to them first.
