"a willingness to confront societal violence..."

Mes Amis

The wonderful Carol Anne Davis (author of some of the best true crime books going as well as excellent psycho-noir novels) has just reveied THE GOOD SON over at Tangled Web. Now, I can't work out how to link direct to the review, but dig around the reviews, you'll find it.

Or check this excerpt here:

With its appreciation of life’s small pleasures, combined with a willingness to confront societal violence, The Good Son reminded me of early Martyn Waites novels. Evocatively describing the Dundee landscape, it’s a highly readable piece of noir.

I love Martyn's early (and later!) novels - - so this is a big compliment to me. And its nice to know people are enjoying the book.

Au revoir

Read the book. Left a message on your voice-mail. Would write a review, but I'm no good at that sort of thing.
The book was bloody good though - nose-deep I was, when the bus driver politely informed me that we had reached the last stop and that I really ought to get off now... seeing as how everyone else had already done so and I was making him late...
