About this deal

It won’t win the Nobel or the Booker, but it ought to have a fair run at the Bollinger Wodehouse prize. They include an influential local politician who used to be the local bully, a retired policeman turned soccer coach and a folksy doctor who drives like a maniac.

One feature of the novel which is exceptionally good is that, as a crime thriller, it has to have a solution; but here there is a solution but no closure.e. that the Cause is greater than the Organization and the Organization is greater than the Leadership… the original Cause was more or less forgotten in the mists of time”.

I was therefore over the moon when I started reading and I could actually hear him talking to me in his Irish tang, nuanced language and witty descriptions of real mundane issues in life.Ireland has long been known as a country of “Saints and Scholars”, with the odd sinner or two thrown in for good measure. At the time of writing, he is currently one of the contestants on Channel 4’s Taskmaster, hosted by Greg Davies. Set during the initial stages of the peace process, we follow Dove's best (albeit estranged) friend Sharkey as he tries to piece together the events which lead up to his fleeing the town, as well as what tipped Dove over the edge to have done what he did. He’s also followed in the footsteps of his co-stars and fellow comedian Graham Norton and comedienne Pauline McGlynn (Mrs Doyle) by turning his hand to writing. One thing that didn't quite work for me was the insertion of quite a bit of Irish culture and history which was often so interesting in itself, requiring further investigation, that it was a tad distracting as it did keep drawing me out of the story I was reading.
