Brutally honest, sad, gritty and with a humorous accent all the way through. Chris is a very clever wordsmith who had me giggling many times, even the last line of the book had me in stitches.
Well done Chris, not sure if there will be a sequel or you are busy with the Hans Larsson series, but either way, eagerly standing by....
Great book and well done for coming through such dillemas- youre a credit to the armed services.
In summary, something bigger seems to have been made out of a short and peripheral stint in the Hong Kong underbelly, but with some witty one-liners. The drugs experience I can't comment on, and perhaps the book would have more resonance with someone who had tried the substances in question.
