When Hell is the Favourable Option, by David Jaundrell

The set of action / mystery / suspense novels I've been reading has taken its toll on me.   I'm fatigued by the genre.  Plus, Mr Jaundrell's writing includes unnecessarily brutal and graphic scenes of violence.   Other than that, the plot was good, and I'd even read another of his novels featuring the hero James James.  As long as I'm in a sufficiently light-hearted mood to skim past the yucky stuff.

But at this point:  I need to switch to non-fiction for a while.  And then perhaps some real literature, or at least something closer to that than this stuff.
