4.0 out of 5 stars Watch your back, the Sandman's coming, 4 April 2013

This review is from: Sandman Slim (Kindle Edition)
Here's a tale of a man back from hell and he's in search of vengance and boy does he start making a mess of it. The writer keeps the book going with some great set pieces and an interesting take in magic. It's not for the faint hearted, there's violence enough although there's alot of humour in it, in a very sardonic way. It does what the author intened, to take you into a world on the edge of our world, where real magic exists but stays hidden and where the monsters aren't just your ordinary everyday demons but a whole host of them as well as possibly being the quiet video store next door. A pretty good read and I'll probably be back for the next instalments.

Anyone looking for something a bit subversive, a bit on the other side of the law and something that'll have you wanting to keep away from the Intersate then you could do a lot worse than picking this book up. It's a back and forth tale with the narrator on a decidedly different type of trip. The book is populated with some very well written and bizarre characters and it speeds you along wondering just what the hell he's gotten into or more precisley how the hell is he going to get out of it. At times a bit rough, a bit kinky and a bit uncomfortable, it's a pretty good read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Standard Scottish cop caper, 4 April 2013

The first in the Scott Cullen series is a fairly easy read as crime capers go. Your standard type police detectives, grumpy boss, irritable and tired old timer, frustrated new detective and lady accomplice, nothing startling there. It moves at a good pace but it's a bit predictable and reading it, it felt like I'd read it all before. I had the plot sorted out pretty much in the first third of the book and there are some glaring plot pieces and cliches tying it all together. However having said that, for a first book it has all the required elements and if you know Edinburgh at all (I lived there for two and a half years and worked out at Livingston) so it was interesting to visualise some of the author's changes to the landscape as well as follow the characters through the old and new city. Will I be getting the second? Jury is out but I might give it a chance.
