30 gifts for 30 days of November - Day 22!

Here is the twenty second of thirty Better Than a Poke in the Eye recommended gifts for the book lover in your life even if that book lover is YOU!

Today's recommendation is Aberystwyth Mon Amour by Malcolm Pryce

Malcolm Pryce is the king of humorous crime noir novels and his setting of Aberystwyth is just perfect for the private investigator Louis Knight to be working in.

Aberystwyth Mon Amour is the first of the Louie Knight Mystery books which spawned a full series of 6 books, a radio play and a walking tour of Aberystwyth.

These books are spoof crime noir at its very best, Rachel loves these books and having spent time in Aber, she recognizes some of the locations within the stories. Book Synopsis

Schoolboys are disappearing all over Aberystwyth and nobody knows why. Louie Knight, the town's private investigator, soon realises that it is going to take more than a double ripple from Sospan, the philosopher cum ice-cream seller, to help find out what is happening to these boys and whether or not Lovespoon, the Welsh teacher, Grand Wizard of the Druids and controller of the town, is more than just a sinister bully. And just who was Gwenno Guevara?
