I’ve had my head down coping with some fairly challenging re-writes lately and haven’t had much time for reading anything else. But I finally finished the edits yesterday, and promptly finished a book I’d been meaning to for weeks, if not months.
The book is Paul D Brazill’s ‘Too Many Crooks’, and like so many others of his, it’s tremendous fun. From the punning title to the madcap action of the final scene, it hurtles from drunken encounter to heist to blagging and back again, against a backdrop of the sleazier parts of Warsaw and London.
You can see my full review at Goodreads, but for anyone who likes their fiction witty but gritty, I can recommend this one.
