Mystery Man by Colin Bateman

About the book

He’s the Man With No Name and the owner of No Alibis, a mystery bookshop in Belfast. But when a detective agency next door goes bust, the agency’s clients start calling into his shop asking him to solve their cases. It’s not as if there’s any danger involved. It’s an easy way to sell books to his gullible customers and Alison, the beautiful girl in the jewellery shop across the road, will surely be impressed. Except she’s not – because she can see the bigger picture. And when they break into the shuttered shop next door on a dare, they have their answer. Suddenly they’re catapulted along a murder trail which leads them from small-time publishing to Nazi concentration camps and serial killers…

Reviewed by Bookworms Reading Group:

It was different, funny some found it compelling, others frustrated. A clever book with a number of levels. Well written and cleverly conceived. Many were laughing aloud. One person did not like it at all.

    This is a good light read and beneath the subtle humour and near unreal characterisation of the players there is a wealth of material for group discussion. An author new to our group but a source for a quick read.
