A star is born,
This review is from: The Mablethorpe Connection (Kindle Edition)
I'm not really one for reading books, but every so often a book comes along that redefines a genre. And that book is The Mablethorpe Connection by respected artist B P Berry. Of course, to a large degree, he is inventing his own genre, as he stretches the boundaries of crime, comedy, war and horror, pulling the strands together into a sum that is greater than the whole of its parts.
Across, the five tales of Detective Inspector Snake Wolfbane, Perry reinvigorates the tired old cliches of standard crime fiction, infusing the stories with a wry twist that only needs a bottle of Scotch to make it complete.
My particular favourite was 'Hankie Krankie' which pulls together a tale of Scotch terrorism, pantomime and star of the seventies Keith Harris, into a story which will make you laugh and cry at the same time. A new star is born, and his name is written large.

Mr Snakebane is so funny. He make me go p**p** a little in my shorts, because they won't let me have the long trousers. Book is so good, though, makes me want to read.
