One very much for the holiday club reader mixing sex, sun and drugs into a wacky thriller, Ibiza based. It is the third from him and they are great fun. The Big Issue summed it up brilliantly, “a contemporary trash classic”.

If you like Colin Butts you might also like to read books by Kevin Sampson and Cy Flood.

Synopsis

A Bus Could Run You Over by Colin Butts

Connor has been dumped by his girlfriend. Even worse, her psychotic brothers believe he has a video recorder full of what they think is their cocaine. When Connor's mates head off to Ibiza, with the video recorder and secret stash in tow, he has to find them - before anyone else does. Ibiza has changed since Connor worked there four years ago. And he's changed, too: whatever happened to "living for the moment"? But there's little time to think about his future - he has enough problems trying to make sure his friends don't end up at the bottom of a cliff . . .
And the scene is set for an explosive, hilarious thriller - with a touch of romance - in the Balearics.asy and horror fields for more
