Playfair - two boys in a boat load of trouble.
It's the hottest July anyone in the northern fishing town of North Shields has ever known.
And when the school gates are unlocked for summer, best friends Ted Berry and Wedge are released into the weary sun-beaten town for six full weeks of menace, mischief and mayhem.
Boredom soon pulls them down into a derelict dry dock where they find a fishing boat that's never had so much as a sniff of a fish. It's full of drugs and is a European crime family's main delivery system to Britain's eastern coastline. The boat was stolen by the local hard man, fisherman Wade Talbot - who also blew its skipper's head apart with a distress flare.
Bez and Wedge sink into a dark world where they will have to fight for their young lives against players who never play fair.
