Aberystwyth mon Amour by Malcolm Pryce

Aberystwyth mon Amour

Malcolm Pryce

A zany glimpse into an Aberystwyth you never knew existed! A wonderful, hilarious pastiche of every detective/gangster story you’ve ever seen or read. The hunt for Evans the Boot, the long battle between the Mafia and the Druids, and a secret from the bloody Wales/Patagonia war of 1961 all combine to make a truly delightful read that had me laughing out loud on almost every page.

Extract

Twenty jaws dropped and the crack of mintos hitting lower dental plates was like a Mexican firing squad. The compere walked over and started checking off the numbers as the rest of the room held its breath and watched through rheum-filled eyes of hate.
