A straightforward telling of a tale – the writing doesn’t exactly leap from the page, the prose does not dance; in fact in a few places, the writing was so clumsy I had a job to tell just exactly the author was actually trying to say, but I came to this biography as a dyed in the wool Vic and Bob fan, I’m a captive audience, I was bound to keep reading. The story is interesting, the anecdotes entertaining.

It’s an older book than I realised. It finishes just when the story was actually getting most interesting – Randall and Hopkirk was just being made, Bang Bang and Catterick and the half-decade lull in Vic and Bob’s careers were still in the future when this book was written. A follow-up seems long overdue.
