Product description


"Stuns like a truncheon, grips like a pair of handcuffs, crackles with charge like a taser. Reading Pocket Notebook is like being caught up in a riot: exhilarating, terrifying - it has an unstoppable momentum." (Niall Griffiths)

"[This] arresting tale doesn't miss a beat...Jacob Smith has got a bad marriage, a penchant for steroids, a violent temper and a foot fetish. None of this would be particularly unusual if he was a villain - but, in Mike Thomas's debut novel, he's one of the policemen. And he's got a gun...This book is clearly written by someone who has seen coppering at first hand...In his anti-hero, Thomas has created a character who has been marginalised and brutalised, partly by frustration at being unable to make more of a difference...While Pocket Notebook might become cult reading in police circles, it certainly isn't about to become a recruit training manual. This is an enjoyable black comedy that builds to an exciting climax." (Independent)

"Pocket Notebook is most certainly not run of the mill...Amusing, in a very black way...entertaining...There's no doubt Mike Thomas can write very well indeed...he's come up with a cracker of a read...Needless to say, Smith is heading for an especially bloody end. It's who he'll take down with him that provides the suspense, and the horror." (Henry Sutton Mirror)

Book Description
