The reason for that is that the author is my partner and cup of tea supplier of nearly 20 years. So in the interests of disclosure, I’m hardly unbiased. If I didn’t like it I would tweet him and tell him (we are THAT modern).
But I do like it, I think it’s terrific, and I think you will like it too. I read it several times during its development, and was the one to answer the author’s question Should I just put this away in a drawer? with No, no, no.
I’m looking forward to reading it again. Check out all the 5 star reviews on Amazon if you want to know why.
The Brandy of the Damned is a book about three people who used to be in a band together, and reunite to drive round the coast of Britain in their old transit van.

*There aren’t any others. You’ll have to buy this one.
Well, that all worked out pretty well for JMRH.
