Been reading a lot recently and have recently finished all the books I currently own. I've enjoyed many different types of styles and authors but now I'm looking for a new witty comedy. Preferably written about the UK.

If anyone has any suggestions then please post them!

Recently I've read The Money That Never Was which was brilliantly written and wonderfully witty! David Luddington does a fab job! Check it out!!

Tom Sharpe and Susan Alison are good authors that I've enjoyed reading in the past.

Jade, you have sold David Luddington to me. Just checked out his page description. Will be a new purchase for my book collection.

Will take a look at David Luddington's work now.

Read a few Tom Sharpe books and really enjoyed them. Will look into Susan Alison as well. Thanks!

Chequered Justice Latest reviews:
Compulsive reading - T. Vicary "Tim Vicary"
Very occasionally a book comes along that is hard to put down, and this is one of those. It's really a true story masquerading as a fiction, and that's what gives it its raw emotional power: it seems these very shocking events really happened to the author. The story isn't shocking because it's violent - as too many thrillers often are - but because emotional impact of the Kafkaesque web of injustice in which the narrator and his family are trapped. If all this is true - as it appears to be - it's very scarey, much more so than if it was just imagined. The story is compulsive for the simple, obvious reason you really want to know what happened next, and how these bad things can be put right, if they ever can. I spent the whole day reading it for just that reason. (I also know a lot more about motor racing now than I did before!)

****ing first class! Howard Marks aka Mr Nice
Innovative, engaging, witty, suspenseful, different, superbly written, moving, interesting, and everything else.... It s as bold and innovative as its author, Chequered Justice gives the reader a breath-taking guided tour of race-track suspense, lifts the lid off lethal insurance brokers, exposes the bent nature of law enforcement, and dives into the depths of emotional whirlwinds, I loved it! download the free sample

Ed Foster, Associate Editor MotorSport
A fantastic read whether you re a racing fan or not - a proper page turner... Highly recommended!

Michael Mansfield QC - Barrister for the Birmingham Six miscarriage of justice appeal
A chilling tale set on the twin tracks of motor racing and justice, exposing the hazardous pit stops of one against the systemic pitfalls of the other, in which truth becomes the loser.

If you haven't read some of the old Tom Sharp books, look them up.

Blot on the Landscape is one I recall.

Alternatively any celeb bio these days is good for a laugh :)

Any of Tom Holt's books are an excellent, try 'Barking' for a good example of his work and then, not so wacky but a delight to read, there are the Rumpole stories by John Mortimer. If by UK you include Scots' humour (and why wouldn't you) then I'd be remiss not to mention yours truly's: Relatively Guilty (Robbie Munro - Best Defence Series #1) nd Duty Man (Robbie Munro - Best Defence Series #2)
