Good Reviews, Bad Reviews

Gravetapping with a most excellent review of Allan Guthrie's SLAMMER, calling it "a fine example of the new noir".

And the Glasgow Herald pronounces Helen Fitzgerald "a writer to be reckoned with" in a review of the marvellous BLOODY WOMEN.

Sam Marlowe at the Times Online reviews the latest play by Glenn Chandler, creator of Taggart, and really doesn't like it very much.

And finally, he's not Scottish, and he's probably never even eaten a deep fried Mars Bar, but, dear reader (I know that's just you, pater) do yourself a favour and go and check out Colin Cotterill over at the International Crime Authors blog. He's a very, very funny man.


  1. Cotterill is hilarious indeed.

    I love the ´old´ Taggart (the TV series), but I have only read one of the books, and I must admit that it wasn´t a memorable experience. If you say that it must be a weak translation, I may believe you, though.

  2. I can't help you on that Dorte - I've never read one!

  3. Good, then you won´t blame me for having read one only ;)

  4. Oh most definitely not, Dorte!
