Well I bought this on the strength of the cover art and the review on the back. Boy was that a mistake. Secombe appears to be trying hard to be both clever and humerous at the same time, but falls sadly short in both cases. The story rambles along using a plot which shudders from the ridiculous to the, erm, ridiculous, and to be honest, it really just doesn't work. Weak characters, absurd and downright silly plot-inventions... thanks, but no thanks.
