hmm, looks like it is trying to escape being a retread of 'Stray Bullet' (which admittedly i still haven't gotten round to) and some of Grauerholz's investigations by being partly dramatised...?..?

that blurb isn't very clear

it looks affordable though and may well be worth a read

ok, i still haven't ordered this (or t'other one) yet....

i admit i'm wary of 'CreateSpace' books...

anyone got this? A positive review might make all the difference.
