The life of Cass Pennant

This is a story of one formidable individual, and of modern Britain in the making. Cass Pennant was an orphaned Jamaican baby, brought up by an elderly English couple in an all-white south London suburb. In the intolerant days before multiculturalism, the young Cass was subject to the racist bullying of the times. We see the young man find his identity among the hooligan tribes of east London, and then self-expression in violence. CASS takes us through the rough-and-ready badlands of seventies and eighties London, from street to terrace to nightclub. As Cass Pennant finds status as a street legend, his reputation as a fearless fighter and peerless security man brings him into conflict with an emerging weapons culture. Foreshadowing our violent times, he narrowly survives shooting at point-blank range. The ultimate question remains: Revenge or reform? Vendetta, or personal growth? This is a story of its times. This is a legend of the streets. This is CASS.
