The 4th in the trilogy (!)
on 27 October 2003
Rankin takes his time getting to the good stuff in this forth part of the Brentford triology, then its all aover too quick and a little to extreme. (Four books in a trilogy, thats Rankins humour for you)
In this volume, there is mention of the issues in the last volumes, except the characters names, which is weird.
Not as much fun to read as rankins more imaginative stuff, such as the chocolate bunnies or the voodoo handbag for instance.
This volume is a bit of British pub life mixed with a storyline from 'The Goodies' only without the humour, the trike or the giant cat.
I'm determined to read it, but am finding it an excellent cure for insomnia at the moment!
Newbies should try something else in Rankins enormous repetoire first methinks.
