I’m a big fan of Martin Stanley’s work. He’s got some heavy duty criminal characters with the big violent balls that more than cash the cheques that their witty mouths write. The Curious Case of the Missing Moolah was no different. I think this one, chronologically speaking, lies somewhere just before Green Eyed Monster and Bone Breakers, given that The Stantons are introduced to fellow smart mouth Mark Kandinsky, who appears as a peripheral character in many of Stanley’s works, but I might be way off.
So here we are, the fourth book of Martin Stanley that I’ve read in the last month or so. Honestly, one time, I read that much of it I dreamt I was living in the seedy world that he’s confidently developing, and I was almost as clever with my mouth and fists as any of the quality creations that stalk it.
The story is that Eric Stanton’s a small time debt collector who’s got designs on getting out from under the umbrella of pretty boy loan shark, Piper (You’ve got to pay the Piper, geddit?) and takes new boy Kandinsky out on the collection run to show him the ropes. Unfortunately for the pair, they fall foul of a bit of a honey trap, which leads to armed robbery, and a wild goose chase through smack dens and thug pubs to get the money back.
It’s standard fare from Martin Stanley, in that his standard is extremely high. He continues his rich vein of form with tip top one liners, and dialogue smarter than Stephen Hawking riding his wheelchair up and down Albert Einstein’s grave whilst the champions on Eggheads look on with approval in their eyes. I’m really enjoying the relationship of the Stanton Brothers, and was happy to bear witness to the return of Kandinsky to the fold, and eagerly await the forthcoming release of his second full length novel.Read more ›
Cue the Stantons causing havoc across the seamier parts of Teeside and their seedier residents..
I am a fan of Martin Stanley's books and, in particular, the Stanton brothers. The author is one of those self-published authors working tirelessly to expand and build on his portfolio and grow his reader base. Why he hasn't got a deal with an indie publisher yet, I don't know.
Anyway, to the novella. It's written in the first person, from the perspective of the more intelligent of the Stanton brothers, he's the brain, the other (literally) the brawn. One interesting point to note is neither character is named throughout (although the author has revealed their given names, previously) a little aspect I like and is well handled, strengthening the story rather than weakening it.
As with all of Stanley's books the narrative is fast paced, the brothers spill from one chaotic scene to another in their break-neck pursuit of the missing cash. Along the way they discover several cases of double dealing and back stabbing. It's violent and gritty, as you would expect from the author.
The characters are excellent. I particularly appreciate the more thuggish of the two brothers. He is short tempered and believes the solution to every problem resides in his fists. Even though the brothers are vicious criminals I can't help but like them, the smarter brother is no angel, but there's a nicely balanced ying and yang between the pair. The dialogue is sharp and fun.Read more ›
