Black on Blonde

Peter Tennant at Black Static provided glowing reviews of Blonde on a Stick and Loss of Separation in a recent issue.

Of Blonde on a Stick, he writes: ‘As you’d expect given Williams’ pedigree, the writing sings, the author capturing perfectly the tone of the hard boiled, wisecracking gumshoe, his language throwing up captivating images and metaphors, lulling the reader into a sense of complete surrender, so that Williams can take us wherever he wishes and we follow simply to hear more from that uniquely beguiling voice.’

And later:

Loss of Separation contains a master class in skilful writing and the evocation of atmosphere, virtues that confirm my long held opinion that Williams is one of the modern masters, a prose stylist of the first rank whatever genre he chooses to write in.’

Both keepers!
