The more I read of this the more I enjoyed until I found I couldn't put it down. This author has his own style and, whilst influences can be detected, the style is unque and very enjoyable. It's light-hearted and concerns an unlikely hero, a useless private detective named 'Cold Turkey', who assisted by Big Fat Martin, unwittingly fights to save Stoke from domination by the treacherous Mr. Rightwing (of the Union of Crimefighting Super Heroes) after Cold determines to find out how £10 was stolen from his bank account. There are some delightfully bizarre characters, especially India, the Hippy Assassin who has some rather surprising tools of his trade. And you'll find the explanation of how Bank Accounts and Cash Machines work both very odd, plausible and hilarious. My one criticism is that the author's photo is on the inside rear of the dustjacket and if, like me, you use this as a book mark, you may be disturbed by the way his eyes peer out at you as if his strange powers are helping him watch you reading...

I absolutely LOVED this book! What makes a Hero super? What indeed. Very sad to have consumed already- Write another one! If you like hopeless situations, sibling rivalry, conspiracy theories with talking heads Vs vigilantes and curious explanations to the inner workings of a cash machine.. You should really have read this book by now. You'll never pass a gnome so carefree again!
A truely smashing read!

An extremely funny book if you enjoy off beat humour. Deserves 5 stars but I gave it four as it needs editing. A good editor could turn this into a bestseller and it would make a hoot of a film. Most I've enjoyed a novel this year and I read a lot. More please.
