Having thoroughly enjoyed DBC Pierre's debut novel I had been looking forward to his next book. Unfortunately this tale never really gets off the ground. There are the occasional glimpses of what made his first book so good but overall this one falls well short. I still have faith though that he will pull the spiked gin tonic out of the hat in his next book and go on to establish himself as a great modern writer.
