*JACK HAMMA - Action Adventure - BOX SET*
*JACK HAMMA - Action Adventure - BOX SET*
Price: £2.34

5.0 out of 5 stars A great collection - Jack Hamma could well be the new guy on the block, 6 May 2015
If you enjoy a slightly surreal yarn, with wickedly & sharply drawn characters , coupled with wit & humour, this trilogy could be for you. The main character, Jack Hamma, an ex SAS commando turned private eye strides through these tales in a series of bizarre but entertaining plots, interspersed with interesting quotes, factoids & not a little comic violence.
The author brings his customary imaginative creations to these yarns & it would be difficult to pick a favourite though I'm drawn to Picnic with Picasso. But try all three, you won't regret it

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Jack Hamma caper, 25 Mar. 2015
JH's ex SAS/Commando skills are put to the ultimate test in this Australian Outback escapade. The author again crafts his characters with the usual bizarre & larger than life personalities. JH finds himself in a situation he can't fathom - & he's due to be married in a few days.
The story develops into a series of fracas with a group of fearsome bikies whilst JH tries to find who's behind trying to sabotage his wedding. His wedding day draws nearer,he becomes increasingly anxious but his heroism serves him well.
The bikies even turn up, intent on mayhem, at his wedding but are routed in an unexpected & amusing way whilst JH abseils into his wedding ceremony where he finally marries his exotic girlfriend & gets behind the reason for the plot.
As usual, there's a number of amusing sub plots, such as a fascination with sausages as well as some interesting factoids e.g. - if true, that Picasso is the world's most stolen artwork.
The short, self contained chapters make for easy reading in short tranches
A roistering, irreverent,action packed & laughable yarn.

Best thriller I've read for a long time. Fast moving after setting the background & context. Thought the finale could have been made better but will definitely look forward to King of Swords

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy, light hearted read, 7 Oct. 2014
Another light hearted & funny Jack Hamma yarn which provides a good holiday read , easily dipped in & out of.
Even though Jack Hamma claims that the life of a private eye can be quite dull, this one seems to lead a pretty frantic life of car chases, multi encounters with psychotic gunmen and confrontation with the usual array of zany characters typical of this authors work.
There's quite bit of description of the countryside around Adelaide which oddly, adds a little authenticity & credibility to the otherwise surreal story & characters.
I particularly liked the (very) boozy session following which Jack Hamma adopts an out of character role.
If this type of humour appeals, this book is a god buy

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value, 25 July 2014

Good price, prompt delivery & item fits well. The material used is a little flimsy & so may not last very long but on the other hand, the thinner material makes the wallet & contents less bulky, and the pockets don't stick together as some do.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not ideal, 9 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although the price & service were excellent, the "portrait" sleeves were open at the top rather than the inside edge. This makes it much harder to quickly access & return the contents. Had to modify them to make them reasonably useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good laughs with good yarn, 18 Jun. 2014
A humorous,light hearted tale,reminiscent of the Mickey Spillane genre. This time it's Jack Gamma instead of Spillane's Mike Hammer,setting himself up as a PI & getting into a few scrapes.
As usual with this author, the cast of characters are wicked reflections of the slightly eccentric behaviour traits seen in real life, from his dodgy partners, the sibling brotherly trio (his clients & later his enemies) to their slightly sinister emigre Grandfather (Stan).
Dead bodies, murder,fraud,smuggling & the inevitable Mr Big all make their appearance in this funny, but curiously believable yarn.
An easy read, ideal holiday material.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A well written, humorous & informative meander across America with interesting tid-bits about many iconic names & places.
His descriptions of the vistas from the train observation cars makes you feel like you're almost there & the interactions with US citizens highlights some interesting differences between us.
You can dip in and out of this book without losing the thread, a perfect read in my opinion to accompany a journey or holiday.


Death in the Australian Outback: Volume 1 (Bigfoot Littlefoot & West)
Death in the Australian Outback: Volume 1 (Bigfoot Littlefoot & West)
by Anthony E Thorogood
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of Laughs, 24 Mar. 2014
The Australian Outback is the backdrop to this first in the Bigfoot, Littlefoot & West series which sees West angling for a job with TURDS, the Tactical Urgent Response Detection Squad. It's packed with misunderstandings, mishaps, bizarre exchanges and loads of laughs. Along with the other books about these three stooges , yarns about this zany trio are rapidly becoming a cult series from an author with a seemingly endless fund of crazy ideas and themes.
Strongly recommended if you enjoy a good laugh.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking, 19 Mar. 2014
I like the sort of books you can dip into , at random, when you've a couple of minutes to spare, and this is one of them. Humour isn't the only feature of these observations, many of them carry a deeper aspect to their meaning - can set you thinking or, just enjoy the fact that the author seems to have the knack of taking any subject matter and putting a funny spin on it
