GOOD NEWS, BAD NEWS (Suspense-England-France/Canada-Cont) – G+
Wolstencroft, David – 1st book
Dutton, 2004- Hardcover
Charlie Miller and George Shaw are two men working in a photo-processing booth. They also happen to be two secret agents, although neither knows about the other. But when each receives orders to kill the other, they decide to go on the run together.
Wolstencroft, the writer of MI-5 shown on A&E, clearly has a well-developed sense of the absurd, creates more twists than a corkscrew factory, and leaves more bodies behind than Agatha Christie. There were a few inconsistencies and I'd like to have seen the characters developed a bit better, but it's an intriguing, wild ride which definitely kept me turning the pages.
