The story opens with the narrator, a writer, in fact Mark Barry himself, travelling with Bull to pick up his brother HobNob from a mysterious facility called Cedar Forest. The writer then follows the progress of the brothers as they aim to keep on the straight and narrow and along the way there are many tales of events and encounters with other clubs and their firms over the years.
One of my favourite parts was a conversation between HobNob and his son, Mini-Beefy as they walk through town...here’s a taster...
‘...Just down a bit, look, there’s Browne’s wine bar, where you went if you wanted to impress a bird. You couldn’t pull in there - well I couldn’t pull anywhere! - as it was full of couples drinking Barolo and listening to Curtis Steigers.
Some curly haired balladeer. Girl’s music, soft and soulful. Michael Bolton-ish.
You’ve got me here, dad, Mini-Beefy said. I’ve no idea who you are talking about. Are they any good?
S***, but if you had a woman on the go, listening to ballads like one sung by Steigers, normally put them in a good mood. Worth having your ears pummelled for an hour or two.Read more ›
“Violent Disorder” is a compelling read that pulls the reader in from the start.
Wow! Could this story get any darker?
"Halfway down the line, we merge into them, the ring fenced, blank faced zombie spectators, pacified and anesthetized by the dreadful anti-spectacle unveiling before them on the emerald green turf. I turn and look to see if we were followed."
