Synopsis

The Greater Thief is a literary crime story of gangs, justice, and faith, set around a notorious London estate. It is inspired by the true stories of young men who have been through the UK criminal justice system, and questions the easy assumptions all around us about crime and urban poverty.

There is a murder on the street. Alice is there. Josh is there. And everyone believes he is guilty, except for her. Paul, the Parish Vicar, holds the key to proving his innocence but first he must find the courage to forget himself. Alice will stand face to face with the reality of the men who want Josh dead, and the discovery about his father s past unravels the code that governs his life. All three must risk what they hoped never to lose, as the things they believe in are tested with fire.

With a combination of myth, tall tales and hip-hop rhythms, this modern fable explores the intersection between everyday crime and loyalty in an ever- expanding city.
