I was a bit disappointed to find that this is not actually the same book as the one that The Doctor and Amy are reading in the episode "The Angels Take Manhattan". It being advertised as such, and having the same cover and all, I was for the first half of the book constantly waiting for Rory to suddenly show up and the real story to kick off. But that never happened.

Instead it reads more like a prequel to the episode, establishing the character of Melody Malone in New York in a completely separate story, involving movie stars who mysteriously keep forgetting who she is. Or they may just be acting. Then again, it wouldn't be a Melody Malone Mystery if there wasn't something very sinister going on behind the curtains...

It's nice for what it is - a pulpy 1930s style mystery detective story starring Melody Malone - and quite funny in places, but I was expecting to read the actual book from the episode, detailing the adventures of Melody Malone as she meets Rory, Amy, and The Doctor and they run around Angel-infested New York, dealing with the timey-wimey-ness of the book appearing in its own story. It would have been brilliant if it had been. It leaves me wishing that it were.

This is a great little short read which ties in nicely with the recent Doctor Who episode 'The Angels Take Manhattan.' Providing more information about the Weeping Angels and more background on Melody/River this is sure to be a hit with Doctor Who fans. The Weeping Angels are a wonderful creation and I'll guarantee that you'll never look at statues in quite the same way after you've seen them on TV or read about them in the Doctor Who books. Certainly I thought the ending of 'Blink' was extremely creepy and designed to mess with viewers heads.
Fans of River will not be disappointed with the opportunity to follow her on a solo adventure, with the chance to see how she operates without the Doctor and to find out how she fills her time between adventures with the Time Lord in her life. I for one am hoping for more Melody/River spin-off stories.

Once you realise this is not the actual book content from the TV episode and nor do we find out why River is in Manhattan under another pseudonym we can settle down and enjoy this short (and cheap) novella.
In classic noire style we learn of Melody Malone's encounter with the last vestiges of the East Coast film industry and have fun all the way.

There is a mild link to the TV story and what we do learn is this setting suits River down to the ground.

More please!

"...packing cleavage that could fell an ox at twenty feet..."

She's shameless; this Melody Malone `broad', packing more innuendo that you could shake a Colt .38 at and with a monopoly on sassiness that would even make Capt. Jack Harkness blush, Justin Richards' spin-off eBook, DOCTOR WHO: THE ANGEL'S KISS - A MELODY MALONE MYSTERY, is a riotous, blazing account that forms a tantalising prequel to SERIES 7's THE ANGELS TAKE MANHATTAN (2012) episode.

The novel, basically written by River Song under the pseudonym of Melody Malone, is, regrettably, short but a joyous distraction accompanied with a bottle of beer, a bag of Pork Scratchings sprinkled generously with salty irony; submerge yourself in the underworld - or under-garment - of gravity defying nylon stockings, of lift-and-separate brassieres that have more under-wiring suspension qualities than New York's Brooklyn Bridge, and of hallucinogenic lipsticks that have the death-defying puckering ability to render any man... or woman... to a simpering wreck.

And then there's a single quantum-locked (Weeping) Angel.

But one is enough. Quite enough.

Released in two formats (digital ebook from BBC BOOKS and an audio reading by Alex Kingston for AUDIOGO), the novel may not be everyone's cup of Joe due to its shallow plot, steady pacing and mildly sexualised tone but it there lies its strength. It's not supposed to be DOCTOR WHO but River Song's world wherein she holds no sway in social hierarchy and conformity, living to her own tidal-like rules & codes and ambivalent interaction with the society that she has had to endure living in our alien world.

At last we get to see Melody AKA River song in an adventure of her own, all be it a prequel to the mid season finale. This is a romp With River in wise cracking sexy form. The words are easily imagined coming from Alex Kingston's mouth. The book is styled like the one featured in the finale which is a great hook. If we can't have an archeological television spin off then please let us have the adventures of River Song in novels now. Maybe Alex could do a narrated version of this novella in time for Christmas haha. Write more Justin, you are a legend!
