Surreal detective adventure in Aberystwyth,
This review is from: The Unbearable Lightness of Being in Aberystwyth (Paperback)
Take Mike Hammer from a Mickey Spilline book and put him in a welsh seaside resort in the darkness of the off season. Wry fun with the Welsh identity, Ice cream making italians and druid mafia wash through the grey and wet landscape as the mystery of the disappearing local diva unravels.
Violent encounters, a hint of romance and a police chief in league with the plotters .... or is there another sub plot.
My favourite of the Aberystwyth books from Malcolm Pryce and the one that I have read more than once.
Its not a pre-requisite to read Aberystwyth Mon Amor first but it helps you decide if you are going to relate to this book or not. I loved it and smiled throughout but its one of those marmite books. You will love it or hate it but you will not find another like it.
