A brand new hard-hitting crime drama from Edinburgh based award-winning journalist, editor and novelist, Tony Black. The Ringer is a cautionary tale of revenge, enacted upon the most unsavoury of characters. Told in the raw Scots tongue, and equally unflinching language, the lowlifes of Scotland’s second city have never looked so low.
For small time Glasgow drug dealer, Stauner, life is sweet when he meets Monique. With free board and an unpaid servant at his beck and call, the daily trip to the bookies is his toughest chore. It could all be too good to be true, but the misogynist Stauner stupidly believes it’s his due. When the wide boy’s deluded state persuades him that Monique should steal from night-club boss Davie Geddes, however, Stauner’s arrogance gets the better of him. Soon his cloak of small-minded bigotry is stripped from him and he’s forced to pay for the grievous misdeeds of his past.
Starring Evelyn Adams and Chris Taylor.
Adapted by Chris Taylor.

“Black’s dialogue and atmosphere crackle…” – The Times
“Tony Black is my favourite British crime writer” – Irvine Welsh, author of Trainspotting
