Belfast Confidential

by Bateman

Belfast Confidential Synopsis

They say moving house is one of the most stressful things you can do. Well, as far as Dan Starkey's concerned, 'they' can stick it where the sun don't shine because right now helping his wife with the unpacking is the least of his worries... No sooner has Dan moved house, than his best mate, Mouse, is brutally murdered - leaving him to catch a killer, become editor of celebrity scandal magazine Belfast Confidential and compile its much-coveted Power List edition. But he's not the only one with a hit list to complete. Someone's systematically killing local celebrities and unless Dan can stop them, the magazine's going under and so is he... by about six feet.

Belfast Confidential Press Reviews

* 'Britain's hippest crime novelist comes up with his strongest book to date' - Esquire * 'The bard of Belfast is on a roll... Belfast Confidential is the seventh novel in his equally compelling and darkly humorous Dan Starkey series... Colin Bateman is clearly the right man, in the right place at the right time' - Mirror * 'The dialogue is extremely funny and Bateman obviously works hard on his easy-going prose' - Telegraph
