review 1: Not worth reviewing properly on my part as I don't have much to say on the matter. It may just be me having recently read a lot of classics and older novels but I instantly found this to be tedious and written in a dreadfully bland manner. Not to my taste but I can see why it has...

review 1: I am a committed fan of Colin Bateman and especially love the Mystery Man series. This book is the fourth in that series and although there were some hugely funny moments/lines and the main characters are really developing, I feel this lost its way slightly in some parts. The epi...

review 1: Worth reading for the last line alone.The owner of Belfast's No Alibis crime fiction bookshop is at it again, along with his sidekick/mother-to-be of his child Alison, and even longer suffering sidekick Jeff. This time the wife of a cult writer seems to have died during a radical...

review 1: I adored the first novel in this series about the 'Mystery Man' who runs a crime fiction bookshop cum private detective agency in Belfast. And I picked up this next book in the series for some light-reading and distraction. Bateman does not disappoint. I got far, far more enter...
