The Fortune Men

Cardiff, 1952: Charming and articulate, Mahmood Mattan, a father and small­time crook who knows the Tiger Bay waterfront like the back of his hand, makes his way through life. When a murder occurs, suspicion falls on him. Mohamed’s novel depicts the true story of a man innocently executed. »When Mohamed›s prose ― simple and full of soul ― illuminates him, Mahmood emerges as a beacon of humour, hope and endurance.« [The Guardian]
