Written in Dead Wax by Andrew Cartmel


WARNING: SHAMELESS PLUG

Andrew Cartmel is one of my closest friends and gave me first writing job and has a book out tomorrow.

Now I actually read each chapter as it was written and by the end I had to taken to calling Andrew and begging him to get a move on. 

So despite the fact that this is a friend and a colleague I want to say - this is a really good book and you might want to give it a whirl.

I particularly like Tinkler's coma, the cats, the Aryan assassins and the high quality red herrings that will have you second guessing the resolution until the last chapter.


 


BLURB FROM THE PUBLISHER

He is a record collector — a connoisseur of vinyl, hunting out rare and elusive LPs. His business card describes him as the “Vinyl Detective” and some people take this more literally than others.

Like the beautiful, mysterious woman who wants to pay him a large sum of money to find a priceless lost recording — on behalf of an extremely wealthy (and rather sinister) shadowy client. 

Given that he’s just about to run out of cat biscuits, this gets our hero’s full attention. So begins a painful and dangerous odyssey in search of the rarest jazz record of them all…

Read Jodi Taylor on your recommendation (https://rodneyssaga.com/2016/01/18/energy-shortage/). Am reading Almost Perfect People, ditto. You have not steered me wrong yet. I will give this a try. Still on pre-order. Added to cart. KTW

I hope Mr Cartmel made it a loooong book, because the gap until the Hanging Tree just got bigger. How come the publishers have moved the date back almost a year?

Happy to report that Mr Cartmel's book is a great read (sadly I have finished it already). The first half has you gripped, that you race to devour the second half. I see a sequel is already in the running, so another book added to my hot forthcoming list. Is there anybody else you'd like to recommend? :-)
