“If one is forced into a hell, one shall act as a devil.”

Riverstones City… A sprawling squalor rife with violence, drug trafficking, larceny, corruption. The rich reside in apathy above the poor. The police and the politicians make their fortunes by gazing the other way. Home to the hopeless, the neglected, the crazy. Home to twisted souls, making parasitical livings through theft, fear and threat. Here, crime is rife, customary, consuming. Here, crime is life.

A near-silent girl they call Red is traversing the urban guts of this city in a scorching summer evening. Nerves are high. Tensions simmering. And when an old rivalry between two legendary gangsters resurges, her life is thrown into deathly peril.

Decades earlier, a man calling himself Fate works to be the most powerful ganglord of Riverstones. Yet his actions sculpt the present adversity of his daughter Red.

The Fires Of Red is a neo-noir epic that melds innovative storytelling with cutting-edge use of language, including the return of ‘Stones-Speak’, the radical style of dialogue British writer Khalid Patel first showcased in his debut Hollow Shotguns.

A sprawling, endlessly inventive blend of introspective drama, crime saga and hyper-real action, The Fires Of Red is an utterly unique ride… with possibly one of the coolest female characters ever committed to ink.
