When we read Tighe's first book his style reminded me of Douglas Adams Hitch Hiker's Guide series. Now I think he may have found his own unique style. Humour keeps a reader keen while the twisted story line offers a different perspective on an issue of national importance in the current nervous climate. Little pieces of the story, such as a pro-ID card character forgetting his office ID and being refused entry by people who knew him, really pulled the debate in focus. Try something different and read Identity Cards with a couple of friends. It will fuel a lively debate and you can share the funny bits. Sniggering to yourself on the train to work worries the other passengers. It's not necessary to read the books in-order but does flesh out the characters in a way that leads to a feeling of knowing them as people and explaining their thoughts and actions. --Mark Atkins - review
When Spawater is selected as the guinea pig for universal government ID cards, our friends are thrown into a tizzy. One is even selected to run the database, threatening his friendship with the others. Meanwhile, nefarious "architects" from out-of-town are trying to steal the town's ancient Roman baths. But their ID's show them to be OK! What is to be done? Can the cards be trashed, the friendship repaired, and the baths saved, all in time for drinks at Lifeboats'? Stay tuned...
--Libby Cone - Author War on the Margins
The Spawater Chronicles are either serious books with added comedy, or comedic tomes poking fun at the pomposity of the serious.
We are not sure which, so we gave the author a seven-book contract to find out.
