Format: Hardcover
Stephen Larkin, an angry, burnt-out investigative journalist, is engaging in a bit of morally correct political blackmail when he gets asked to investigate a case of child abuse in an inner city daycare centre. His friend, Detective Inspector Henry Moir, is looking for a missing boy. When the child turns up dead the two cases converge in an emotionally explosive climax. What a great book. Cracking pace, great dialogue, characters you get to care about, told with a hard-boiled prose style that has more depth and emotionalism than you would expect. Waites has taken a difficult subject matter and, without coming across preachy or worthy, turns out an exciting read that nevertheless doesn't pull its punches. There are some really exciting new crime writers being published in Britain now, and with his first book, Mary's Prayer, Martyn Waites showed he was definitely a name to watch. This one confirms the promise and if he keeps going like this, it won't be long before he's up there with the best. I flat out loved this book and wished it was twice as long.

Format: Paperback
... Waites has wrote a corker in 'Little Triggers.' Sometimes it's not the easiest book to read, simply due to the detail of the abuse. However, this makes Larkin's attempts to chase down the abusers all the more gratifying. How nice it is to see a book of this sort NOT set in London. I'm sick and tired of authors referring to 'fashionable' London, soho, old street and the rest! There are somtimes better locations for these stories - so good for Martyn to break a trend and get out of London! It's one of those books where you say to yourself 'I'll put it down after this chapter', but you're left in such a way at the end of the chapter, that you find it impossible to put down! All in all, sometimes disturbing - but ultimately superb! I'd recommend it to all!
Ps. As an NUFC season ticket holder - good to see a few little mentions of the Toon!

Format: Paperback
if you have never read a "mystery" novel before, then you may be excused for not working out the murderer in this book three-quarters of the way into this 212 page book, but the signposts given thoughout made it was very obvious.the narrative is written in a very po-faced style and there is some very clunky dialogue, full of bathos. there is a scene in this book which particularly annoyed me which featured a character crying in similar circumstances to jack carter in "get carter" the movie set in newcastle, the place where the action in this book takes place.
All in all, a very poor effort indeed.
