Overview

A killer is stalking the mean streets of New Rochdale. Two policemen are viciously slaughtered in a seemingly opportunistic attack by the most malevolent serial killer ever to grace a book. (Even Hannibal the Cannibal wouldn't sit next to him at the annual Fictional Serial Killers banquet. Hannibal ended up sitting between a murderer from a season finale of CSI: Miami and a kid from Scream 3. It wasn't a pleasant evening. Then they served roasted census taker with baked beans and a substandard Bordeaux. Hannibal said they could stuff it next year.) The world has already seen crime-cracking double acts from Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson, to Cagney and Lacey, and to Ant and Dec. Now from the bowels of the New Rochdale Police Department come the inscrutable team of Detective Sergeant Nugus Bottomley and, his new recruit, Detective Constable Padraic Evans. They think the cop killings tie in with an audacious train robbery from the 1980's - a heist of silver bullion, denied by the government, a robbery that never was! Armed to the back molars, the beer swilling, charismatic Nugus and the nerdish, neurotic Padraic take on the case of a lifetime, not realising that it could mean the end of their lives. A host of memorable characters, including two capricious undertakers, a local crime boss and his Hollywood starlet daughter, and a bent copper, are only too happy to confuse matters for Nugus and Padraic, who have enough to worry about when a TV crew want to film the dynamic duo at work. Then a mysterious stranger starts leaking blood, and other bodily fluids, everywhere. A twisted plot - gruesome murders, a creepy secret prison cell, a dangerous doner kebab and an ice cream van. NRPD: The mean streets - You may die laughing.

    No, no and heck no!

    This book is set in England. It is written complete with accents and European slang. It is almost a sci fi murder mystery. It is a decent length at 400 pages. The editing is better then most free books, but it could still use touching up. I found it very hard to read. Perhaps it is geared more to men then women. I knew from the first two chapters, it was not a book I cared to finish, but I soldiered on for three more chapters. Then it was either quit reading or poke my own eyes out. The main constable was a rude, self centered, vain, selfish, smart alec. He treated his supervisor and co-workers with disrespect. He even made fun of Columbo, played by Peter Falk, which is just plain wrong. There was violence and a few curse words in the part I read. I do not know if there was any sex or romance farther in, because I quit reading after five chapters. All I can say about ever reading this author's work, or this book again is no, no and heck no! Oh, and by the way, always watch out for that first step.
