Publisher's Write-Up

'The estate agents here have got to be crooks, if you go looking for a dope smuggler to sell your house.'

Holy Land - Holy Mayhem

David Preston is the Dope Priest and he has a headache. If you've smuggled drugs out of war zones, you're not going to worry about a spot of illegal land trading between the Palestinians and Israelis. But David never planned on amorous nuns, kosher egg racketeers and the full might of the Israeli secret housing service. Even now, he feels he could cope. If only he could win the heart of the local drive-time DJ, or at least find something decent to smoke.

'Ultra-hip and mega cool, manic, funny, hugely imaginative... Blincoe is a terrific talent'

Well, I got about 1/3 of the way through this book, but it took me about 3 weeks to get that far. Now, that's not like me, but I am giving up - I may try it again in about 10 years.

What is wrong with it? Well, the blurb says that it is funny, but the reviewers sense of humour is obviously not the same as mine. The best thing about it is the bloke on the cover - he looks like JK out of Jamiroquai - I liked his hat - isn't that a good reason to read a book? It might be just to start it, but it needs more than that to finish it!
