"The energy in the stories makes you feel you are right there beside him in the yard. From the first chapter until the last I was hooked.

He was always one step ahead of us." - Spokesperson for British Transport Police "GLYNN JUDD is a real writer who takes the reader back in time where you were out there racking paint, going to the yards, lay ups and tunnels and looking out for the Vandal Squad who were hired to take us writers down. This book is an explosive ride through the graffiti world that most individuals only dream about. You're there with him and you feel the rush, the adrenaline.
