Funny reading plus the usual BATEMAN wickedstory telling GREAT BOOK
This was the first Bateman book that I was given to read by my pastor while living in Northern Ireland and I loved it so much that I reread it 3 times! Bateman is witty, punny and so very clever. His style may not be for everyone, as it takes someone who is tuned into "that type" of humour so be aware.
I'm a big fan of Colin Bateman but it appears I'm not such a fan of 'Bateman.' Since his PR folk discarded the 'Colin' ( why, I ask ? ) his writing has become a bit commercial. The wit is still there but it's a wee bit tired. Not enjoying his books the way I did his early writing.

Having read 4 other Colin Bateman books I found this book to be rather hard to get into initially. Bateman moves away from his usual Irish setting for the most part of this book with the events taking place mainly in New York. Yet again Dan Starkey finds himself over his head with Murder, deceit and in this case boxing. Whilst I did find it hard to get into, I would still recommend this book as its another exciting chapter in the life of poor old Dan.
