BLOG_Blogival_2017_BranenA few months into the new job, whilst he was back in London to photograph an anti-government demo, Branen decided to drop in on the Empire Room in Dean Street.
He was familiar with the club from his early days in Soho and he wanted to catch up with the owner, Ayo Wood.

“Look who we’ve got here, darlings…” said Ayo, as Branen hesitated in the doorway. “…My God man, come in… where have you been?”

“Soho is a village in the centre of London with its heart hidden in the underworld and beating within the bars, clubs and dark alleyways that inspired me to write about it.” A.W. Rock

After spending too much of his own time in the clubs and bars of Soho, and in meeting many eccentric people, A.W. Rock was driven to tell a story that is in part drawn from real people and events.


The first in his Soho Honey series introduces us to a complicated and unorthodox protagonist – Branen – whose backstory is revealed in teasing fragments. Set against a vivid social and cultural history of London, readers will get to straddle both Sohos, and hang out on with him in the in the dark, fetid alleys of the past as well as the modern day iconic watering holes of Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club and Costas Lounge.

Soho Honey by A.W. Rock is a dangerous, seductive and highly addictive debut novel and the perfect next read for fans of serious crime thrillers.
