SPAGHETTI JUNCTION, A NAPOLEON CLANCY BOOK, VOL. 1
It's two men against a world of criminality
They're Batman and Robin without the masks, Don Quixote and Sancho Panza minus the windmills, Holmes and Watson with not a clue in sight. Meet Napoleon 'Nappy' Clancy - ex Birmingham bobbie and Cleveland cop, now a private detective trying to make ends meet - along with his 'sidekick', ex- Dublin guard Barry Fanning.
After months of inactivity and in need of cash to pay credit card bills and alimony for his kids in America, Clancy gets a phone call from a beautiful blonde, Clare Jameson, who needs someone to find her missing boyfriend, Roger Diamond, manager of a city centre nightclub. Clancy is up for the job, naturally. We follow him and the reluctant-to-get-involved Fanning as they enter the Birmingham underworld, full of dangerous people with dangerous intentions, until the trail leads the two private eyes to London and a strip club which holds a dark secret.
Will Clancy and Fanning solve the case and raise their reputations as private detectives?
'Spaghetti Junction' is a black comedy/crime thriller, and the first volume in a series of Napoleon Clancy books.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Redundant, predictable, lame. Not good. But it was free, and I did read it.
I tried to read this, but I just couldn't read passed the first chapter. Found it to be very boring.
Cockney crowd might glom onto it. But even Cleveland Coppers are not this hapless.
Can't recommend. Has writing and grammar skills but the story is minimal and hidden behind a lot of jabber. Vulgar. Not worth the time.
