This is so brilliant. I love it when an author can turn the most gruesome scene, where I am reading but trying not to look at the same time, into one that makes me smile then laugh. This Paul Brazill seems to have mastered and it has such a smoothness with it, and so very natural that you can almost forget that someone is dying at a pair of thugs hands. It is like putting the shopping through at the tills and you get talking and the shopping becomes secondary. Just some thing going on in the back ground. Well that is how some of these conversations are and it is quite genius.
The scenes with Father Tim, which are quite plentiful, are quite amusing but put him with Gregor and these two just bounce off each other. There is such a casual way in which they go about business and that is simply what it is, a job. It is just that they are bloody good at maiming and murder. It isn't a job where you can really make friends with people either because buy them a pint one minute and just one phone call from Uncle Tony and their life can be ended before the forth has disappeared off their beer.
Novellas aren't really my thing but I had heard so much about Paul Brazill that I had to see what he was all about. This novella has been top notch read. Such a very busy book it is bursting with entertainment value page after page, loved the gang members names and the London twang. Superb!

I’ve been champing the bit waiting for this book to drop because there are few writers who genuinely entertain as much as Brazill. And this is no exception.

If you’ve read Guns of Brixton, you’ll recognise some of the folks here. The tune has changed from the Clash to the inimitable Vic Godard and this offers the chance to slip in a little — dare I say it? — poetry between the mayhem. There’s a confidence here that allows some audacity. The first line: ‘The morning that Father Tim Cook killed Aldo Calvino the air tasted like lead and the sky was gun-metal grey.’ Mood and mayhem plonk down on a bar stool next to you. You’re not going anywhere until you find out how it all shakes out.

As always it’s laugh out loud funny between bouts of wincingly painful chaos brought on by characters who are as unlikely as they are vivid: gangsters who are feeling their age, hitmen who miss, hoods who want to go straight, and an actor so far up his own arse he thinks he’s god — or maybe just Batman.

I love the expansion of the Brazill world: both the London stories and the Seatown tales feed into the history of Cold London Blues. You don’t need to have read all his other books but it helps. There’s a mad world of lowlifes, cops and random walk-ons — no innocents though. Everyone has their demons — but they’ve got music too.

And I love the idea of the Roman Dalton P.I. series: TV people, make it so!

Some quotes (I’ll try not to post everything): just go buy it now.

A face so lived-in squatters wouldn’t stay there, as his old gran would have said.

Real, gritty, hard core, lowdown. Brazill has scored here with a close intensive look at the dark underside of London. Vernacular and edgy, with Brazill's trademark popular culture referencing, this novel drips with menace and menacing humour. Compelling, brilliant.

This is one of the funniest books I’ve read in a long time. My initial thought and expectation was to read a dark, gritty look at London’s gang life, until I found myself laughing out loud. And what a refreshing style – at last!! – Here is someone who wants to tell it like they want to. The turn of phrase, the sometimes one liner’s had me in stitches. He describes someone’s aversion to heights: “He got vertigo wearing thick socks”. I did wonder if you had to be a certain age to appreciate all the references, but thought if anyone really needed to know there was always Google (my life line!)
The style of writing is so good you almost forgot what the plot was about whilst reading it. With a body at every turn, even the violent scenes were amusing to imagine. This would make an excellent film of The Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels type, maybe Guy Richie should be offered it!
The characters names were brilliant, their descriptions, quirks and foibles excellently wrapped up in the style of this talented writer. Read it and weep with laughter.

The latest romp into the dark world of PD Brazill, Satan's very own PG Wodehouse. It's the capitol this time (the title is a giveaway) rather than the mean streets of Seatown. But if it's grim up North, it's grimmer down South, all arse-end and underside. Father Tim is the black soutaned sheep of the Cook clan, whose devotion to holy orders consists solely in the odd Latin pun as he offs the flock one by one. He's no maniac: it's a job of work and he dispenses it with a shrug and a sigh. He's back adrift in his home town, slouching through a litany of small disasters in the dark places between the first swig and the shakes. There's a plot somewhere among the choppy set pieces, but what the hell. Just give it up for the characters and the dialogue. Be-Bop DeLurca, Turban Ted, Tarquin Farrago, Baghead Berry, Squeaky Thompson, Toffy's Offy... and a tool-bag filled to busting with lines you wish you'd come out with. And you will. Treat yourself.
