I've just spent a week getting very cross with all the people who kept interrupting me when I was lost in this book. The house is a mess, but who cares? From the first sentence, I was drawn into the life of the main character. I was intrigued, I laughed, I was hooked on the plot and absolutely loved the little sub-stories within the book. Andrew Lucas is a great observer of body language, and the reader can instantly "see" the characters from his insightful and often amusing descriptions, whilst never quite knowing the answer to a couple of questions until the very end of the book. An absolute joy, and I hope very much that there will be more from this talented author.

I really wanted to enjoy this book. I was very enthusiastic. Sadly, it did not sustain and just didn't continue to interest me. After a considerable amount of effort, I came to the conclusion that it was pedestrian and dull. It shouldn't have been dull as the content is extreme, violent and bizarre, but it was dull nonetheless.

This book is long-winded and tedious. It took me about 50 times as long to finish as any other book in recent memory and only because I assumed, wrongly, that it must get better to have received such high ratings from others. I normally find Amazon ratings to be spot on but in this case either I completely missed the point or others' ratings were bumped up by the fact that it is "award-winning" and interestingly titled!

I echo all of the previous one star reviewers. In the past, I have always managed to finish even the dullest of books but this one beat me. The numerous grammatical errors, spelling mistakes and missing words which were mildly annoying to start with, made my blood boil by the time I was half way through. On top of that, the constant name dropping of 'Starbucks' and 'Marks and Sparks' does make me wonder if there is a sponsorship deal involved. The plot is tedious and humourless, the characters are all very dislikable and corrupt. I have no good things to say about this book and can't urge you enough to save your money and time by choosing something/anything else.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I was looking for a book which would engage me without much effort on my part and Cross Dressed To Kill certainly did that. But more than just a 'light' read, it is also witily black in it's humour, has a central character whom you cannot help but like (dispite being a serial killer)and a satisfyingly neat tidying up of most of the loose ends of the story.
Definitely worth an effortless read!

I can only assume that the previous reviewers who have given this bilge a five star rating have done so because they are either closely related to the author or are all members of the same remedial reading group. This book is as "hilarious" as cataracts, the plot is as plausible as one of Alistair Darling's budgets, the characters are utterly characterless and the book is written in such a disjointed fashion that it flows as well as a septic tank. To make matters worse it is riddled with basic grammatical errors, primary school spelling mistakes and regular, and increasingly infuriating, missing words.

If you are considering buying this rubbish then please don't, save yourself untold wasted hours of tedium and growing frustration by placing your 99p in the nearest charity jar - though preferably not one for illiterate authors!!

I bought this as I fancied a change from my usual genre. An easy read which at times had me
laughing. I found the plot occasionally a little too repetetive but well worth the read. Good fun and inventive.

I was reading another book at the time when I saw this book on an Amazon recommendations email. I hadn't heard of the author before but I like crime books so as it was only 77p I thought I would give it a go. As a different genre to my other book the idea was I'd read both of these as one a traditional book and this one on my kindle. I had a bit of a dip into this book and just couldn't put it down. It's got murder in it and at times is quite funny. I know it shouldn't be but it was just some of the quirky obsessive ways the murderer has you couldn't help but chuckle and had to find out what happens next. Some reviewers haven't got the point saying that it's not funny- it is- just not to be taken too seriously. Enjoyed it and would read the follow up when it is released.
