4 Stars from me
Without wishing to sound like a 1980s wine expert, in this book I found hints of Royston Vasey, a whiff of the first series of the Office and maybe base notes of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy…
This is part thriller / part dark comedy and I know that it is just the sort of thing that my uncle would love! Gavin’s character in particular and his dour humour would most certainly appeal.
No spoilers from me, as ever, so read the blurb below to find out more and head over to Kindle Unlimited where it is currently available for free, or order a copy of the book as the perfect antidote to the Covid blues!
Blurb: Time to cheer yourself up with this dark comedic page turner!
When Gavin’s retro joke shop fails and his wife, Marie, leaves him, he finds himself at a crossroads in his life. Seeking a fresh start in employment, his existence is then blighted by tyrannical boss, Bryce Brimstone – a man who seems to bestow misery on everyone he meets. Eventually wishing the dreadful guy dead, it seems that Gavin is not the only one who shares that daydream.
But how might a monster be nobbled? With rat poison, a meat cleaver maybe, or even by the imaginative use of cling film? Or how about by using an app on your phone, one that makes sorting assassinations as easy as ordering a pizza?
Then again, who would want to enter a traumatising world of murder investigations, kidnap, cannibalism, organised crime and ice cream van drama? Surely best to stay well clear?
‘Gavin & The Body Snatchers’ – a tale of be careful what you wish for. A better life is all very well. But not if it KILLS you!
