Belleville : Life, a unique twisting detective novel.
Now out on paperback and kindle.
A twisting detective novel set in a monstrous city. PI Charles Dodgson is in a whole heap of trouble, but not nearly as much as the city he lives in. Something rotten lives out on the east side of town and no matter how hard he tries to avoid it; heís the only person doing anything about it. Things are about to get a whole lot worse for him and his one client as he unravels a monstrous mystery dating back to the fifties where the first days of space exploration didnít quite play out like the history books we know.

★★★★★ I loved every minute of reading this book. The characters came to life with such clarity. I'm still in the bar waiting for Vincent to trundle through and remembering not to drink that drink if l wanna think. A book that took me on a surreal ride, an adventure, a thriller and bit of a chiller. Will def be reading this again and look forward to more Bellville life..
★★★★★ Belleville : Life had me hooked from the start. in common with the magic realism tradition, reality is presented, but everything is subtly different. we are expected to believe in crazy unthinkable things, which are presented in such an offhand way that they really highlight the sense that things are rotten in the state of Belleville. Fans of the hard-boiled detective genre will enjoy the Hammettesque narrative. The characters are likeable, and simple - Truslove doesn't go in for soul searching, it's all about the mystery. The central mystery of WTF is going on here??? is frustratingly untold. I believe the author had in mind a 4 book story, making me wonder what the next subtitles might be.... Nevertheless, the mysteries that ARE solved within the book are certainly satisfying.
Hope you guys don't mind me posting this in here, I know you don't like promotion on the main threads. Hopefully somebody might read it and enjoy it.
