The second gritty Newcastle-set thriller in this unforgettable series about a homeless veteran turned local sleuth and vigilante. Follow up to the highly acclaimed The Man on the Street.




A series of bizarre drug-related deaths among runaway teenagers has set the North East’s homeless community on edge.

The word on the street is that a rogue batch of Spice – the zombie drug sweeping the inner cities – is to blame, but when one of Jimmy’s few close friends is caught up in the carnage, loyalty compels him to find out what’s really going on.

One Way Street sees the welcome return of Jimmy Mullen, the homeless, PTSD-suffering, veteran as he attempts to rebuild his life following the events in The Man on the Street.

As his probation officer constantly reminds him: all he needs to do is keep out of trouble. Sadly for him, trouble seems to have a habit of tracking Jimmy down.

Loved catching up with Jimmy and the gang to find out what trouble they found themselves in. The characters are excellent, believable. A riveting read. Highly recommended and I can't wait to see what Trevor writes next
Patricia Gibney, author of the Detective Lottie Parker series
Wood delivers another gritty story set on the streets of Newcastle with characters you genuinely care about. This had me still reading at 2am, desperate to know who would make it. A real triumph

These characters dive from the page straight into your heart
Rob Parker, author of the Ben Bracken series
Good sequels successfully recapture the magic of the original, great ones expand on it. Jimmy's world is now bigger, richer and more hazardous. He has reinvented the gumshoe novel for contemporary Britain
Dominic Nolan, author of Past Life and After Dark
The world that Trevor Wood created in The Man on the Street was already rich and vibrant, but it comes even more alive in One Way Street, a triumphant sequel in which we learn more about Jimmy's great friend, Deano. Brimming over with soul and compassion, the tension builds towards its gripping conclusion. Can't recommend it more highly
Harriet Tyce, author of Blood Orange
Another gritty yet compassionate crime novel set in the underbelly of Newcastle. Fab!
Philippa East, author of Little White Lies
An assured, gripping novel with a fresh take on the genre. I loved every minute of this book

A unique protagonist ... a smart, thought-provoking crime read with bags of heart and humanity
Mari Hannah, author of the DCI Kate Daniels series
As good as the first Jimmy and his friends Gadge and Deano have a special place in my heart. A great twisty plot ... Wood writes with ease and compassion with just the right amount of tension and intrigue. Loved it and can't wait for the next
