VINE VOICETOP 1000 REVIEWERon October 3, 2011
This is a gem of a book that I would have easily overlooked had it not been on the free Kindle list.

It's a mix of many different things that you so wouldn't expect to have been thrown together in a quiet little village in the middle of Nowhere, Scotland - money laundering, a retired spy moving to the village for peace and quiet - as if! - Iranian bad guys, the all-seeing eye of the Americans, busybodies, the local pub and place where it all happens, a bit of a mystery, a disappearance, council snoops, a touch of Hyacinth Bucket delusions and aspirations of grandeur, and from a man at that...It might sound confusing, but it totally worked, and I found myself chuckling quietly every so often.

The dialogue was witty, it had interesting characters, a well-thought-of plot and gently darkish humour. It reminded me a little of the community in the movie Hot Fuzz, but without the sinister bits. A great little tale.
