Ex-journalist Dan Starkey is stuck in a grimy Belfast bedsit. His life is a disaster, and his only solace is the pub round the corner. He really, really needs something to get his teeth into. Fellow ex-journalist Mark Corkery provides that something. Corkery, an Internet horseracing gossip, wants him to investigate Geordie McClean, the man behind Irish American Racing.
Simple enough for a man with Dan's experience, surely? But Trouble is Dan's middle name. And trouble is what he finds.

Generally a great book from Colin, very funny throughout, a little bizarre in sections but all add to the unique style he has. Well read by the narrator, however would have expected somewhat deeper Belfast accent than what seemed like a well versed Cultra accent ;)
"Luck of the Irish!"
At first I thought I would not like the narration, but it's so well done I was away with the horses, and loved all the twists and turns of the story............
This book was awful. I gave up in the first chapter after a graphic description of a toilet being unblocked by hand, the blockage being rancid chicken. I do not need to be depressed and made ill by a book.
He was fine
All of them
Awful, awful, awful
