A Ball-Twisting, Rollarcoaster Ride!, 21 Jan. 2003
From the very first page, Mr Welsh hooked me and dragged me into the sick and twisted world of D. S. Bruce Robertson. And I enjoyed every minute of it! Dodgy Robertson represents the evil we all think is out there... somewhere, and his level of behaviour is in the extreme or not at all! I wondered if this story is purely a work of fiction or perhaps drawn from Irvine's personal experiences and observations with the constabulary. If it's the latter, then I'm glad we live in different parts of the world. A feast of explicit sex, violence and drug use. Delicious... I'm going out to buy the rest of Irvine Welsh's books!
