Publisher's summary

Walter has a rubbish job, so has Margaret. But when they meet through a dating agency, neither is who they seem. Margaret's married for a start, and Walter's encounter with her husband, Billy, leaves him black and blue. Billy's a dodgy accountant for politician and racketeer Pink Harrison, who is about to come unstuck.

Superintendent James Mallow is determined to nail Pink. Meanwhile Redmond O'Boyle, professional terrorist and occasional birdwatcher, is languishing in a Colombian jail, and his only way out is to kill himself and trust in reincarnation.

PICK ME PLEASE PICK ME WE'LL HAVE LOTS OF FUN

Writing is great, narrator good, and character development meticulous.
Aside from all this within this novel you will find:
Love, Romance, Politics and Crime, Friendship, Deceit, Treachery and Intrigue must I not forget Crucial Decision Making,and Simple and direct Language.
I totally enjoyed this novel hated for it to end I had so much fun listening. I even learned something of Ireland. Do you have any idea what a Gravy Ring is? I do, got curious and looked it up online. You may find other things that pique your curiosity.

Worth a listen

I enjoyed listening to this book. The narration by Colin Bateman was delightful. Mastering the Irish brogue is not an easy accomplishment.

The storyline was a bit of a stretch but all in all it left me feeling good. I laughed out loud several times.

It's an enjoyable read and worth a listen.

A Great Listen

While it took me a little while to get in to the story, I found this one of the most enjoyable listens I have had.
My knowlege of Colin Bateman as an author was limited though I had seen movies and TV based on his novels. It was a good listen. Long yes,and like other reviewers, I too could have enjoyed more. I have now downloaded the other two of his books available on Audible.
I did laugh out loud at times. Having checked his website now, I am happy to find many new(for me) books from Colin Bateman.
