My First Thoughts:

I’m just over halfway through this and I must say I am thoroughly enjoying my first foray into British Brit Grit crime drama, which as the genre suggests is a ‘gritty, crime, horror-filled, drama’ very much with a style of its own. The main character, Brad, can’t do anything right. Yet in his own way, everything he tries to do is for the best. But mistakes (like lies) have a habit of snowballing and this story follows him as he makes one mistake after another, getting himself deeper and deeper into trouble! In many respects it’s both hilarious and gruesome at the same time. If you like crime, thrillers you should try this noir, Brit Grit book, Manchester Vice.  Full review coming soon…

Manchester Vice

by Jack Strange (Goodreads Author)
 4.63  ·   Rating details ·  Ratings  ·  Reviews
Get ready for a taut, edge-of-your-seat thriller from bestselling UK author Jack Strange! Brad Sharpe, a crime beat reporter for the Manchester Daily News, is tired of wasting his time on petty crimes and go-nowhere stories. Hungry for something bigger, and hoping to revive both his flagging career and his crumbling marriage, Brad connects himself to one of England’s most notorious serial killers. This might just be Brad’s biggest break, in more was than one. MANCHESTER VICE, another thrilling title in the exciting new Noirvellas series of darkcrime and noir fiction from Coffin Hop Press!

    How chilling that an “ordinary” person could turn into a stone cold killer. The journey must be interesting. Thanks for sharing, and here’s mine: “BEST DAY EVER”

    1. Yes! I suppose we all start off ordinary to a point lol

  2. I have not read anything by this author but I have to admit that I absolutely loved the first page. I do find British authors to be quite different in pacing, voice and dry wit than American authors – a good change of point of view for someone who reads a lot. This sounds like a really good choice. Here’s my Friday meme

    1. Hi Maria!

      So pleased you like the sound of it. Yes, this author has a Brit Grit style, really fitting with this genre. Hope you get to read it while it’s on offer! 😉

    1. Hi Catherine,

      That’s what made me realise straight away, I was going to enjoy this! You really need to know more, and that makes for a great read.

    1. Thank you! That’s very nice of you! Much appreciated.
      Well, it’s on offer this week, so… if you want it to read later… ? 😉 Have a lovely weekend, too!

    1. Hi Lisa! You’re welcome. Yes, I love the beginning, too!

  3. Wow!! That beginning has me needing to know more about what happened! Sounds like a really fast-paced thriller. I hope that you enjoy it. 🙂

    1. It would be lovely for you to come and join us over at Goodreads! Grab it now whilst it’s still on offer anyway! 😉

  4. Attack an innocent man? I’m fearful, but then there’s that line about not having an available weapon and I’m suddenly intrigued. I hope you enjoy your weekend!

    1. He’s a bumbling soul, but quick to learn from his mistakes lol

    1. Yep, it does hook you in, and it’s very grisly in places. 😉

    Love the sound of this one. Not a genre I know a lot about, but definitely captures my attention. Thanks for visiting my blog.
