Product description


Malcolm Pryce is the king of Welsh noir and he dishes up a dastardly mix of gothic comedy where Edgar Allen Poe meets Phoenix Nights in a flurry of blood-stained absurdity (Sunday Telegraph)

Surreal, absurd and very funny ... ingredients include a Buick sought by an alien from another planet; a mayoral election that has replaced voting with a human cannonball; and wisecracks that would make Groucho Marx jealous (The Times)

Pryce continues to put a uniquely surreal spin on the hoary old conventions of noir writing ... It's impossibly weird and, in parts, beautifully lyrical. Pryce's many fans certainly won't be disappointed (Guardian)

You'll weep and laugh, on the same page. Wonderful (Guardian)

Pryce's Aberystwyth is populated by the same hoods, crooks, heavies, conmen, liars, informers, dealers and bureaucrats that prop up the street corners of Raymond Chandler's LA, Louie himself possessing the same unshakable idealism and acid tongue as Philip Marlowe (Time Out)

Poor Aberystwyth. Malcolm Pryce has taken this blameless town and turned it into a nightmarish world ... his plots are as satisfying as those of some of the best straight practitioners (Daily Telegraph)

Book Description

In the latest hilarious instalment of Malcolm Pryce's Louie Knight mysteries, Wales's answer to Philip Marlowe faces an axe-wielding rabbit-hugger, a green-eyed beauty who answers to the name Miaow, and a case that is out of this world
