“The adventures of this PI feel like they rolled out of a Tom Waits song — crime with the feel of a shaggy dog story” — K A Laity.
“An original homebrew with a kick. Well worth sampling.” — Mark Ramsden.
Following the breakdown of his marriage, in a booze-addled flash of inspiration, Peter Ord decides to become a private investigator. Dark farce and tragicomedy soon ensue. Peter must tackle many challenging cases, and when he comes under the radar of a local crime lord, he may have bitten off more than he can chew. With sidekicks, like boozy hack, Bryn Laden, failure is not an option – it’s compulsory.
Brazill was a new author I discovered to be well versed, have engaging characters, and a story line that enters a world you want to seep into. There was some fun and witty things in this book, he’s a skilled author. A PI, Peter Ord enters a world he didn’t quite expect and enlists the help of his sidekick to navigate it all. Great and fast read.
