Russian Roulette (Konstantin Book 2): The Konstantin Files
Russian Roulette (Konstantin Book 2): The Konstantin Files
Price: £1.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking tales, 23 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Several cracking tales in one volume of bumbling criminals, drugs, prostitution, fake psychics, and other misfortunes, most of which cross the hulking path of ex-KGB man Konstantin Boryakov at one point or another. Top notch entertainment from Keith Nixon. Fast-paced, action-packed, foul-mouthed stories with a fair dose of heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Guy Ritchie film in prose form, 17 Dec. 2015

This review is from: Guns of Brixton (Kindle Edition)
Fantastic fun. Like a Guy Ritchie film in word form. If I had to pick a small caveat in an otherwise stellar package is that there are too many characters vying for the reader's attention, all of them with some cracking lines and one-liners. Part of me wanted more time with them in a longer narrative. However, that aside, this is a cracking comedy thriller

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent music player, 27 Nov. 2015

Decent music player. Sound quality is good for the price. The menu system is a bit clunky, but it's easy to drag and drop mp3 files on the system. And it's small and light enough to be unobtrusive whilst jogging.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent headphones for the price, 27 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent headphones for the price. They sit in the ear just right whilst jogging, which makes a change from a lot of 'ear bud' style headphones I've used previously. The noise cancelling technology does a very good job of cutting out background sounds, which means that I can have music at a much lower volume but hear it better – and the reduced decibel count will be better for my ears in the long-term.

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, but been done better but other writers, 25 Sept. 2015

This review is from: A Swollen Red Sun (Kindle Edition)
This tale of Southern noir is not bad, but lacks the originality of the author's debut 'Frank Sinatra in a Blender' and the crux of the tale (a hackneyed premise of good man finds money but bad things ensue) has been told more engagingly by other writers. It has some fine moments, but also drags in places. I've read better, but if you liked McBride's first then you might find this may entertaining.

Quality screen for the price. Decent colour and resolution. Good for use with my Mac in clamshell mode, and for use with my desktop Windows PC.

Okay chair. Not as comfortable as I would have hoped, particularly for long periods of sitting, but decent for short periods.

Nice little barebones PC. Not very powerful, but good for those who fancy a Linux HTPC or a Windows based home theatre machine. Ideally needs 8gb of memory to get the most out of it, but it works a treat.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great collection of interconnected stories, 25 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jigsaw Youth (Kindle Edition)
Jigsaw Youth by Tiffany Scandal is a fine piece of writing that might not appear on most readers' radars because it can't be easily categorised. It falls into a novel of short stories - more connected than most short story collections, but looser than most novels. It covers periods of the narrator's life in a non-linear manner, but has interconnected characters and situations. It contains some stories of real power and simplicity - the narrative about the rape, and the narrator's reaction to it, is especially affecting. Not every story hits this excellence, but there are still some great pieces of writing in here.
