Format:Paperback
Old Largo and his friend Simon seem to be in as much danger from being constantly bedded down by beautiful women as they are challenged by corporate fiends and gangsters. It seems no-one is to be trusted anymore. It took me a couple of sittings to read this book as there was a lot of dialogue and quite a few twists and turns. If this is what it's like to be a billionaire I think I'm quite happy being skint, mind you the women.....mmmmmm.

This is the 3rd book in the Largo Winch series from Cinebook and in this one he certainly ends up in a dire pickle. The way he gets out of it is just a bit too clever by half if you ask me, but then I struggle with James Bond in the same way.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly slapstick downturn in exceptional series 17 April 2009
By J. Shurin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
argo Winch: The Dutch Connection (Francq / Van Hammer) is the third collection of the Largo Winch series to be published in English by Cinebook. Like the two before it (and the zillion to follow), it contains one story arc, broken in half at the moment of greatest tension.

Largo Winch is a billionaire playboy, owner of the globe-spanning 'W' corporation. He's good with knives, the ladies and handling threats (however unconventional) to his business empire. The Largo Winch series is never high art. Winch leaps around the world like a crazed salmon, shagging the ladyfolk and stabbing his enemies. The adventures are punctuated by slapstick humor, but, underneath the boobs and the blades, the stories are surprisingly good mysteries with an affable, enjoyable lead character.

The Dutch Connection is the weakest story so far, and it overcompensates with extra breasts and slapstick. Someone is using Largo's business empire to shuttle heroin around the world. The cops think it is Largo, so he's forced to go rogue to find out who the real bad guy is. There's action a-plenty, but unlike the other stories, there's very little mystery or intrigue. The bulk of the story is told via lengthy exposition (huge blocks of text). Largo's cunning plans and sneaky surprises - which are normally more 'open' with the reader - take place with no forewarning (however subtle). The result is a very linear story that doesn't engage the reader to the same degree as the first two collections. The series has dipped from a Showtime series to a Cinemax action flick. With book 4, we'll see if the trend reverses itself.
