Layer CakeBook - 2004
Layer cake, a metaphor for the many murk layers of the criminal world, is set in modern day London and features smooth-talking and sophisicated drug dealer "X" whose plan is to quietly bank-roll enough cash to retire young. Operating under the polished veneer of a legitimate businessman, his method is to keep a low profile and run a tight operation until it's time to get out. "X" sees his opportunity to make a final score when crime boss Jimmy Price asks him to find the wayward daughter of rival crime boss Eddy Ryder. He agrees to take the seemingly innocuous assignment as his opportunity to get out of the business with the blessing of Jimmy Price.
