What the Critics Say

"Hysterically funny one-liners and sinister Kafkaesque developments..." (Daily Mail)

"Divorcing Jack is richly paranoid and very funny, it manages to say more about the Troubles in 280 vivid pages than reams of earnest reportage ever could." (Sunday Times)

    "Not his best work"

    I've always really enjoyed his books, in particular the Mystery Man series but this one didn't do it for me.

    The narrator couldn't really do the american accent assigned to one of the characters but other than that did an ok job.

    "If you haven't read Bateman Start here..."

    I have read all of the Mystery Man novels and loved them so I was quite keen to dive into the Dan Starky series. Unfortunately I was a little disappointed. This book was nowhere near as funny or engaging as MM, although it was a good listen. I wish I had started here as I would still have the MM series to get to.
