Jack Parlabane's back. The thick Scottish accents, Irn-Bru, and football references are back, too. Fast, violent, with sympathetic characters, and a decidedly liberal (in the American usage) sensibility. As usual, the writing has passages that are so exquisite you want to read them out loud to someone (although if you live alone, this is trickier).

If you don't like dialect, avoid, but it makes me want to find a cute boy in a kilt for a snog. The end read like it was the end of the series, but amazon tells me there are most, which I want to pick up for sure. Whee!
