Always good to return to a Bateman. The stories are well scripted and contain enough black humour to lighten your reading. In the end this book takes a bit if an unfair and very uncharacteristically savage turn towards the end. I didn’t expect that from this author. I’m not sure I actually enjoyed the ending and on the whole it’s not as great as “Belfast confidential” or ” I predict a riot”.
This is a Dan Starkey from about 2001 and the age shows as it is pre-Euro Europe and this really dates it. Sean is a successful celebrity actor who has shifted into directing films and has decided to take on the subject of a legendary paramilitary colonel. Starkey is asked to write Sean’s biography and their stories wrap around each other.
I’m really sorry I lost touch with you James you were a great friend.
