What a heap. Zero story. Dreadful characterisation. No pace. No plot. Just tired cliche stunts again and again. Did I say dreadful? Just dire. Awful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Individual chapters are peppered with personal anecdotes and the classic teaching tools making for an easy, informative and inte, 4 Sept. 2014
Forget The Power of Now. This is the book you want. A really powerful shot of Zen told by a writer who knows what he's talking about. As much essential reading for the beginner as for the master. Individual chapters are peppered with personal anecdotes and the classic teaching tools making for an easy, informative and interesting read. If you ever questioned the 'lack' of the Western lifestyle and looked for a more balanced way of existing, these wise words will open your eyes. Simply brilliant.


One for My Baby: a novella
One for My Baby: a novella
by Barry Graham
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Old school Noir, with a modern twist, 16 Mar. 2014
It's testament to Barry Graham's skill as a writer that he has managed to distill all the classic elements of Noir into such a short, potent story. In clean, spare prose the tale grabs you from the first page and doesn't let up for even a second. The protagonist, Mark, could easily have been a creation of David Goodis or Jim Thompson if they had been around today to utilise the full spectrum of our modern malaise. This is the dark side of the American dream: blunt and brutal and every page is painfully portrayed by one of the greatest practitioners of the dark novel working today. A full five stars, and very well earned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crime fans: Get this in your sights ..., 9 Jan. 2014
This review is from: The Marksman (Paperback)
What a find. A taut, mean Scottish thriller written in the most memorable of prose. Hugh C. Rae seems to be little known these days in crime-writing circles and that is perhaps the real mystery of this book. Take just one example of his writing, from the very first page:

"Ranges of high-rise flats, office developments and the buttes of a new components plant rose up from the ridges. The flanks of the low delta of the Wickerburn were scarred with demolition pits and smouldering junk fires purled hanks of oily smoke across the excavated earth."

The quality continues throughout the rest of the book with a pacy plot that never leads the reader astray but makes sure every chicane is a blind turn into new territory.

All the players are three-dimensional, not necessarily nice, but this is Scottish crime fiction at its brutal best; would you really want to befriend those from an underworld where blood is the argument?

I can't shovel praise high enough. The Marksman is the grittiest, most literate Scottish crime novel I've read in years. This out-of-print classic deserves a new audience, a new publisher and digital distribution to the wider core of crime fans. Someone get on that, please ...
