Brutal and unrelenting Paignton is a rough, gritty, violent place.

Synopsis/blurb….Hired by mobster Marie Andretti to ransack the office of morbidly obese local nightclub owner 'Swollen' Roland Smart, Paignton private investigator Joe Rey quickly finds himself plunged into a dangerous cat and mouse game- which leaves him fighting for his life.

After reading his one I doubt we ’ ll be returning.When you see the sun rise in Paignton it looks like a collapsed lung filling up with blood.Low life characters, grimy watering holes, seedy nightclubs and dingy brothels, a private investigator or two, a midget and a pornographer, teenage strippers and prostitutes, a eating, a stabbing and lots more.

I don ’ t ead a lot of crime/noir but at little over 40 pages, Skull Meat wasn ’ t to be anothe huge investment in my time.

I wa little intention of reading story the night I bought it, finally, I ad a quick look at the irst page and I ha all in.Skull Meat is dark, ritty, violent and really well-written.

Skull Meat is a decen place to begi, too ( oddly, the book cover to his latest novella- Slug Bait- which is quite gruesome- is what finally pushed me to obtain writings by Leins).
