Overview

London in the early 1990s; supposedly the New Age ‘Caring Nineties’. But the streets, it turns out, are not paved with gold, but covered with the homeless living in leeping-bags and cardboard boxes, and often littered with a far more dangerous form of flotsam. For Angel, the city divides into several layers of underworlds and sub-cultures: callous crime and corruption, the growing drug culture, the seedier side of the gay scene, the young and homeless.

Overview

London in the early 1990s; supposedly the New Age ‘Caring Nineties’. But the streets, it turns out, are not paved with gold, but covered with the homeless living in leeping-bags and cardboard boxes, and often littered with a far more dangerous form of flotsam. For Angel, the city divides into several layers of underworlds and sub-cultures: callous crime and corruption, the growing drug culture, the seedier side of the gay scene, the young and homeless. There is also a more literal underworld where the role-playing game of Dungeons and Dragons can shift from fantasy to real violence at the flick of a wizard’s wand … But most serious of all is that Angel is down on his luck and flat broke. The situation is critical. So critical, he might even have to get a job...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Returning from Angels in Arms 1992, Fitzroy McLean Angel drives a reconditioned cab in London as a messenger, cracking wise and struggling to make ends meet. Here he accepts the job offer of a flamboyant young homeless man named Tigger to help move mysterious packages by night. Angel, happy to pocket the tax-free income, wonders why his new partner remains on the streets and posts off his payments elsewhere. When Tigger vanishes, their employer offers Angel even more hard cash to find him. Angel wanders deep into the cold world of the city's homeless, talking to lost souls and encountering an occasional angel of mercy. Ripley breaks too frequently-and lengthily-from his plot to reach for laughs e.g., an extended, very funny bit about a bar on gay karaoke night to sustain his readers' interest in the narrative, despite the inherent appeal of most of his characters and the cleverness of his humor. The puzzle's payoff is adequate, but like many of the punch lines, it takes too long to get there. Jan.
