Much as I love Snake Wolfbane, for me the real star of the book is Mablethorpe. I've never been to the real town of Mablethorpe - and I now think the reality would be a let-down. Just as Ellroy's Los Angeles is the central character at the heart of his stories, so Mablethorpe represents an entire moral universe.

I hadn't really thought about this, maywords. I originally planned for Snake to be the star, but after reading this you're probably right - it's Mablethorpe. I might get rid of Snake altogether in the next one and get Mablethorpe to solve all the crimes that happen in itself. Is this existential? Sorry, I never finished school because of my feet.

The star is clearly the Lagonda, driven on the edge of control, towards school children.

For my money, Doris is the real star of this collection. She's the moral heart of The Mablethorpe Connection. The moral, deaf heart.
