Barry Laden Klarkey’s War Pbk published November 2005 by East of City Press at £7.99 ISBN: 095504250X

Having made his fortune through a sophisticated people smuggling operation based in Paris, Klarkey unleashes a tidal wave of revenge upon the unsuspecting criminals of Britain . From Aberdeen to Portsmouth , London to Paris or Iraq to Spain , the action in Klarkey's War takes place in a contemporary world, where international borders are crossed more easily than ever before. Klarkey's War examines public opinion towards asylum seekers, paedophiles, criminality and the prison service. Klarkey's War urges us to consider our own feelings towards criminals and how we define criminality. Does the existing overcrowded prison system work, or are Klarkey's drastic actions more appropriate and effective? Is anyone sufficiently justified to kill, irrespective of how despicable their targets? Does the UK 's penal system provide punishment that fits the crime, or could there be another way?

Barry Laden was born in London in 1965. After moving to Portsmouth in 1977, he won his first writing competition aged 11, where his prize was to take the salute from the entire fleet of the Royal Navy on the eve of the Queen’s Silver Jubilee.
After part-qualifying as an accountant, he worked in various sectors of industry, including leisure, travel and retail. With his sister Adele, he founded The Laden Showroom, which continues to be a celebrated London haven for young fashions designers. He also launched the first mobile retail store, The London Fashion Bus: a converted red London double-decker bus which travelled throughout the UK, which featured in Press and on TV around the world.
His writing includes a mix of journalism and broadcast material. Klarkey’s War is Barry Laden’s first novel.
