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”.

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.

And the scene is set for an explosive, hilarious thriller - with a touch of romance - in the Balearics.asy and horror fields for more
