Book Description

Despotic market owner Sheena McKinley rules her market and car boot sale with an iron fist. When, as a cost-cutting exercise, she allows the inmates of the local open prison to pick up litter, there are rumblings of discontent amongst the regular traders, particularly the car-booters. One by one, the prisoners start to go missing; Reg, the market manager, thinks he's been abducted by aliens; Matt, the butcher, starts selling chicken feed and the Burger Man's indiscretions come back to haunt him. In the background, something dark and sinister is going on – something that will, one day soon, come home to roost!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Little Gem 13 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another gem via Twitter! I am trying to read a few lighter novels, and I certainly chuckled my way through this book once I got into it and worked out the characters, which are wonderful. The story is a little far fetched, but that just serves to make it more amusing. It definitely puts car boot sales in a different light for me! I gather that this is a debut novel, so I cannot wait to read the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quirky Read 1 Feb. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoyed this book immensely. I used to work on the markets and could relate to the carryings on between stallholders.
Quirky, dark and funny especially for those of us that have a quirky, dark sense of humour. Well worth a read for eveyone. Well done to this author hope to read many more from you.

1.0 out of 5 stars Thin and boring! 14 Jun. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Bought this after reading the other rave reviews. Have no idea what other people now consider good as this is like a teenagers attempt at creative writing. Loose ends, ridiculous plot - this doesn't even make it as a holiday sunbed read it is so annoying. If this is the level British literature has fallen to we have no hope. I am beginning to despair at finding something useful for this Kindle...... So far re-reading Dickens has been it's only saving grace.
