Summary

All Nick wants to do is take his dying father for a perfect father-son weekend in the Scottish Highlands. It’s not much to ask, is it? A log cabin, a roaring fire, a bottle of fine whiskey, and two days to paper over the cracks in their relationship. However, Nick didn’t plan on making the trip with a dead neighbour in the back of his car. Or the neighbour’s dog. He really didn’t plan on being pursued by a psychotic female assassin intent on collecting body parts. And he really, really didn’t plan on encountering a platoon of heavily armed mercenaries, or some very hungry boars, or a werewolf.

A Heart in the Right Place - a story about setting out with the very best intentions and then, messing everything up.

Great story, superb narration.

I’m a huge fan of Clovenhoof series and this one is by same authors so I gave it a chance. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The narration really adds a lot to it as well. Very very funny and original.

very graphic

Good box, but starts out with a lot of graphic violence and stressful situations.

Over the top

I've really enjoyed reading the work of Goody & Grant. I love how often their books are laugh-out-loud funny. But this one was so gory, I almost couldn't stand it. The descriptions of blood and cruelty added nothing to the story. In fact, I'm reluctant to read any more of their books after this one.

Skipped the tacky parts

Long discussions of sh*t and detailed descriptions of torture are not my cup of tea. Could have done without them. However the basic story line was interesting and the narration was excellent.
