I was recommended this book to read by a friend and thoroughly enjoyed every page. This book is extremely funny, interesting and takes a real sideways look at life. There are so few books out there like this at the moment - my view is, like many other things in life, books are starting to, in the main, follow a formula and you feel like you have come across the story lines many times before; and you cannot move for crime thrillers! For me this book should get cult status and should be placed alongside 'The Dice Man' and 'The Third Policeman'. A plea to the author - please write another novel soon. I am off to recommend this book to as many people as I can.
