My turn on the Graham Smith blog tour for today and the penultimate post. This is my first Graham Smith experience and one that I enjoyed. The novella focuses on interweaving threads of troublesome football fans and some darker themes. I feel like it helped to have some previous knowledge of the authors work to gain maximum enjoyment, but the novella was well written and enjoyable for novices like me too. Well plotted and an interesting idea made for a cracking short read. You got a good sense of character development in a short space of time and the story had a satisfying conclusion. A definite 4* read for me, and continue reading the blog post for my interview with the author
