Been meaning to read one of his books. Maybe this one rather than the vampires.

One of my book's of the month, of the 7-8 I read in May, was THE RULE BOOK, by... some Irish fella...

Excellent debut. In the process of writing some reviews for various publications, so haven't put a review on Crime Watch yet (don't want to pre-empt the other reviews)....
