    1. Great fun. Wickedly funny cast of characters and a 1980s London that I remember all too well. I'm looking forward to the next 'Angel' book.

    2. The first 'Angel' book is really good. Ripley's writing is well paced and draws you in well, his description of the characters is well bodied and you really begin to identify with their little nuances meaning that you care for them. Special mention to Springsteen, Angel's cat, who owns Angel more than the other way round (been there).I really urge anybody out there who enjoys light hearted thrillers to give the Angel series a try, you won't regret it.
