'This extraordinary thriller has a gallery of wonderful characters from a crazy vicar to a blind bodyguard. A frightening and fast-paced story with the huge bonus of several chapters which are hysterically funny. Don't miss this one!' --Actor, Richard Briers
'FIVE STARS. This is a great holiday book!!! Think Tom Sharpe (Wilt, Riotous Assembly, etc) with balls. Royden manages to flesh out his 'wacky characters' with just enough reality that even the cross-dressing Colonel and the unhinged, pot-smoking, Harley Davidson-riding Vicar of Buntleyford are believable (I think he was the Vicar at my last wedding actually). If you want a great laugh and you are not worried about the strange looks that you'll get on the plane when you pee yourself, then add it to your hand luggage!! Unfortunately I was on the No. 41 bus when I read it and am now being sued by The Hampshire Bus Cleaning Company!!!...I loved it!!...A gripping story that had me guessing to the end. If I could give it 6 stars, I would!' --Gary Shail - Quadrophenia
'fast, funny and compelling...I was hooked from the start and couldn t put the book down...I found myself laughing out loud on several chapters, and even read a few parts twice over they were that funny. Highly recommended. My book of the year!' --International recording artiste, Simon Fung - China Black

This book takes you on an exciting day's journey with hard-nut Danny, a gangster who wants to retire. Settling into a country village seems an unlikely goal for him, and not everyone is happy to have him around. However, the mysterious letter with which the story begins delivers a few surprises....
Ideal book to take on holiday, the story is well paced and easy to pick up whenever you like.
As funny as toothache,I couldn't bear to finish it and was left feeling as if I had wasted an hour of my life.
The other reviewers have mentioned about the characters and the craziness of the plot, so I won't go on about all that too much, but needless to say, I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a funny read.
I look forward to the next instalment and I definitely think there is mileage in the characters created in this book.
