Kindle-fied Review 1: DEADFOLK, by Charlie Williams

Royston Blake’s a doorman, a bloke what relies on his rep as a right hard bastard. So when some wankers start in that he’s lost his bottle Royston has to step up. Worse even, the Munston brothers are after him for events that well, let’s not go into that just now, right? Royston needs to re-establish his reputation, like, but using his Swede ain’t his cuppa, normally. And one thing you can bank on in the town of Mangel. Ain’t nothing gonna go right, ever.
DEADFOLK was writ down by some tosser what calls hisself Charlie Williams, and he gets it all right, mostly. He seems to be on intimate terms with Royston. Not intimate like a couple of poofs or nothing, but like, he don’t make no mistakes. And DEADFOLK, well, it’s the first book in a series, innit? You’re going to like Royston, despite yourself. DEADFOLK is a great fucking book. All right, mate? All right.


  1. I've read a bunch of positive reviews about this book, without quite getting round to buying it. Since your review of Brit Grit - which is the bollocks - was spot on, I'm gonna order this book directly. In spite of your awful attempt to write yokel-English-English, chalk this as one sale due to you.

  2. I think you'll like it, Christopher. ANd I promise in future to not mangle the Mangel.
