This one's a favourite of mine. A focus on Conrad for a couple of pages. An error of judgement on my part meant that the print copy was a tad illegible. Kudos to you if you've come over seeking a clearer read.
For those of you who don't know Newcastle that well, this one starts off in the Bigg Market, well, above it. It's toned down quite a lot actually. No stabbings in this. Still, you probably wouldn't believe us if we were entirely truthful. I don't mean for this to start a "my home town's rougher than yours" type debate, for the area of the Bigg Market is a distinct entity unlike anything else. Not so much an area of the city as a collective mentality of "I will glass you if you look at me" localised into a few square metres.
