Lazy Sunday Service

Halfway through Death Toll by Jim Kelly. Enjoying it, although it is a little longwinded in places and could have been tightened up to useful effect. There's no doubt though that he employs some lovely descriptive imagery throughout. Here are two samples from the same page.

'His eyes were green too, bright and youthful, but his skin had all the surface tension of a week-old party balloon.'

'The smile on the barman's face fell like a calving iceberg.'
