A Stuga On the Cusp of the Orust Riviera, tucked away next to a hobbit hole in the woods.

Dead Sea Deception - Adam Blake Adam Blake is Mark Billingham.Dedication:To Chris, my FatherAnd Chris, my brother,And Chris my soul-brotherAnd Sandra, my sister - but maybe weshould call her Chris to avoid any ambiguity.Opening - When despatch called to tell Sheriff Webster Gayle about the plane crash, he was at the bowling alley, just about to sink a spoon into an enormous bowl of ice-cream.The only thing about this ludicrous tale that is remotely seasonal is that a town called Santa Claus was used. The first 150 pages should have been sicarii'ed, no loss. The remaining 400 pages should have been a 10 page comic book given away to anyone who doesn't have much to live for anymore.This was 552 pages of pure crap, and I read them all because dear M was kind enough to give me a pressie.
