ANGELS IN ARMS by Mike Ripley


Email this review


 The US debut of scruffy, scrappy Fitzroy Maclean Angel, whose chum Werewolf has been kidnapped and will be killed in five days by the FPB (Front Populaire Breton) unless Angel can recover the million-dollar cache of Ecstasy tablets that belonged to the FPB- -and that was hidden in the truck Werewolf crashed while driving as a roadie on a rock-star's tour. Angel has joins the heavy-metal band, reacquaints himself with the amazonian Lu-Lu, a sharpshooter swathed in leather, redeems the pills, and gets ready to renegotiate with the FPB for Werewolf's release. But they're not very amenable; other drug interests seem to be involved; and as Angel, Lu-Lu, et al. traipse around the European landscape, bodies go flying and cars go careening--until Werewolf, more or less intact, is released, and Angel and his dear old aunty come to terms with his killer cats. Fast-paced and often funny, with tart jibes at roadies, groupies, nonmusical musicians, and the pop life.
