This is a stunning debut novel from Mateo Askaripour. He has an original voice and style full of racial angst. Not only are the racial observations very pertinent but his own journey is challenging. The final outcome is unexpected. The whole story is well written with many wry observations and witty episodes: a book for modern times.

Nat is put out to pasture in a local London spy centre (The Haven – a complete misnomer) by his “friends” in Head Office much to his chagrin. Spies, like author John le Carré, refuse […]
I have been rather disappointed in recent novels by John Grisham, so “The Guardians” was a pleasant surprise. “The Guardians” is bang in form, and back to the strengths of his earlier novels. The “Law […]
This is the Richard Osman of Pointless (and other TV quizzes and Chat shows) so you can expect an off-beat novel! You will not be disappointed – there are plenty of pithy observations, and tangential […]
