The Darke Affair (Drunk On The Moon) by Allan Leverone

I had the cold sweats and like any addict that has gone without a fix cold turkey had a grip of me. With feverish hands I pressed the buy now with 1-click button and all was right with the world. I had my instalment of Drunk On The Moon to read.

Who is this silent watcher in town? Why is Roman being tailed? Who is driving the mysterious black car? Will Ton Ton Philippe get the revenge he seeks? Roman must battle mortal enemies when there is no full moon which will stretch his resources to the very limit.

Volume 3 of Paul D Brazill's Drunk On The Moon is written by Allan Leverone. Snappy dialogue and witty banter are the order of the day. Leverone uses great imagery that really made me chuckle. For example:
My business had been drier than a 90 year old nun in the Sahara.

The story is liberally sprinkled with gems like this. Great action and sparkling wit has become a trademark of this series and Allan Leverone does not disappoint. Funny, interesting and a great read.


  1. Thanks very much, Darren, I'm really glad you enjoyed it! This whole City world is dark and menacing and utterly captivating. Hats off to Paul D. Brazill for creating such a provocative setting and such wonderful characters.
