I really enjoyed the previous two books in the Kev series. I found them to be laugh out loud funny and although much of the material could be viewed as offensive it really seemed to work in the context it was used. The third book is probably the weakest in the series and has less funny moments but it is still definitely worth a read.
What this book does is flesh out the Kev story and bring it to a satisfying close. The story keeps your attention and has satisfying plot twists and surprises. It continues the very anti-establishment focus of the first two novels but concentrates more on the bad treatment of the SAS. The artwork by Carlos Ezquerra is great as usual and the “Alien” based dream Kev has at the beginning of the book has a very “Strontium Dog” look to it. I think the bad language might be a little overdone but this is a minor criticism. (ISBN-13: 978-1401209902) 8/10
