Aberystwyth Mon Amour by Malcolm Pryce
  

Lovereading view...

Maxim Jakubowski's view...

Just the thought of a private eye operating in Aberystwyth brings a smile to the face, but Louie Knight's 6 cases to date are the stuff of comic legend. A unique homage to the classics of crime, tender, funny and surprisingly gripping.

Synopsis

Aberystwyth Mon Amour by Malcolm Pryce

Schoolboys are disappearing all over Aberystwyth and nobody knows why. Louie Knight, the town's private investigator, soon realises that it is going to take more than a double ripple from Sospan, the philosopher cum ice-cream seller, to help find out what is happening to these boys and whether or not Lovespoon, the Welsh teacher, Grand Wizard of the Druids and controller of the town, is more than just a sinister bully. And just who was Gwenno Guevara?

'Spot on. This rollicking black comedy should be ludicrous but isn't. Huge fun'

About the Author

Malcolm Pryce

Malcolm Pryce was born in the UK and has spent much of his life working and travelling abroad. He has been, at various times, a BMW assembly-line worker, a hotel washer-up, a deck hand on a yacht sailing the South Seas, an advertising copywriter and the world’s worst aluminium salesman. In 1998 he gave up his day job and booked a passage on a banana boat bound for South America in order to write Aberystwyth Mon Amour. He spent the next seven years living in Bangkok, where he wrote three more novels in the series, Last Tango in Aberystwyth, The Unbearable Lightness of Being in Aberystwyth and Don’t Cry for Me Aberystwyth. In 2007 he moved back to the UK and now lives in Oxford.

Maxim Jakubowski's view on LOUIE KNIGHT...

The madcap and often poignant adventures of the only private eye in Aberystwyth. As if Monty Python had met Chandler’s Philip Marlowe. Affectionate and quite unique in tone and plotting and a sheer delight. FROM ABERYSTWYTH WITH LOVE is the 5th in the series.
