The Hiding Place

The Hiding Place

Tiger Bay, Cardiff, 1948. Frank Gauci steps off the Callisto into the coldest winter ever clutching a cardboard suitcase. When Frankie and his best friend Salvatore open the doors of the Moonlight Cafe, life seems good: downstairs there is sweet music, hot food, beautiful girls; and upstairs there is gambling. Through the eyes of Dolores the Gaucis’ youngest child, Trezza Azzopardi reveals a world rarely seen in fiction – the Cardiff underworld of the sixties.
