I cannot begin to tell you the sheer joy on opening the parcel containing this book. I read book 3 in this trilogy Guerilla Season ages ago and simply loved it. Went on a quest for book 2 - Inside Dope which I managed to get hold of, but the quest for book 1 - Old School Tie has never come up successful.
There's so much crime fiction from so many varied cultures these days that it's hard to pick the new "big thing". The unfortunate thing about the "big thing" is that other areas are often unfairly swamped or forgotten. Working away in some of the less often remarked upon areas, there are some stunningly good authors.
