characters Fire and Brimstone ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB à ❰BOOKS❯ ✸ Fire and Brimstone Author Colin Bateman – When Alison Wolff the daughter of a billionaire media mogul disappears following a massacre at a party nobody knows if she has been kidnapped or killedDan StarkAmed for the firebombing of the controversial new abortion clinic Dan is asked to prove their involvementIn a Belfast rapidly descending back into chaos Dan finds himself caught in the violent struggle between rival gangs one of which claims to have God on their side. I was on a real Colin Bateman kick when I was younger in the late nineties and early two thousands I blazed through Divorcing Jack which was a revelation I loved the narrative voice and the wild plot Every time I entered a book store I would check first the 'A' section of the fiction shelves and then proceed to the 'B' section for a new book by Mr BatemanAnd Colin's recent resurgence on Kickstarter and Facebook got me back into his work which I'd left for whatever reason maybe he simply stopped churning out books at a pace that kept up with my book store visits I enjoyed his re launched collection of short stories Dublin Express and on the back of it bought the audiobook of Fire and Brimstone his latest book not financed by KickstarterAnd there it was suddenly Dan Starkey like some old buddy back in the saddle The voice was the same after all he'd been through near divorce infidelity by both himself and Trish the death of their son numerous beatings and off he dove into a fresh adventureAlmost immediately I was glad I'd given Dan a break for a number of years before tackling this book I don't know that I could read them all back to back because Dan is intentionally I believe a pretty unsympathetic character By the time I'd gotten halfway through I thought the plot was interesting enough but an unease with the whole book began to settle over me By the time he runs into his third or so bad guy I clocked it the book feels like one long drawn out bad guy monologue From Harry Frank the drug dealer from a high figure in a new cult on the streets of Belfast from Trish from Dan himself from the leader of the Botanic Boat Crew They all take the stage proclaim to the audience how they're going to do what they're going to do or why they're going to do it and then exeunt stage left Except for Dan who sticks around to chuck witty little uips in everyone's direction More than anything else in the book the tendency of the characters to wibble on a bit grated the mostThe action gets a little predictable and if you've read any other Dan Starkey books you can probably guess the outcome and resolution to a few of the mysteries But it's familiar turf to Bateman's readers with Belfast getting a little drug and gang makeover in lieu of sectarian violence which is entertaining enough

Dan Starkey is hardly your typical book hero a magnet for every element of danger you can imagine thoughtless and annoyingly for every other character but not the reader sarcastic There's a reason Colin Bateman is my favourite fictional writer and it's because his novels are always fast paced often dark and menacing with a sublime thread of black humour throughout This the 10th in the Dan Starkey series is one of his best
