I think Sean Duffy’s first involved a homosexual element in the IRA, and a rent boy: now that was unexpected – and the characters felt more complex, and real.

Before I say anything about plot or characters or historical and social context, let me shout out as loudly as I possibly can that what makes Divorcing Jack such a fun read, a book that will keep you chuckling as you eagerly turn the pages, is the tale's narrator and all-around comic hero, Dan Starkey. Black romantic comedy set around the troubled "peace process" and its effect on a cynical Belfast hack. On wife Patricia: "She had done more damage to my nose in three years of marriage than twenty years of amateur football. Once on the job, Kane must also deal with a young sharpshooter named Billy Young and a sharp and sassy saloon dancer, Lily. If you take any of the two aspects of the film – comedic or political – and separate it from the other, maybe it really isn't all that good.I have read all of the Mystery Man novels and loved them so I was quite keen to dive into the Dan Starky series.

Dan Starkey finds himself at the epicenter of a vortex propelled by three engines: wife Patricia catching him kissing Margaret, his unwittingly selling a much sought after cassette tape, his involvement as a journalist with an American interviewing the country's future Prime Minister.

Adapted by Bateman himself it is faithful to the novel, which means the style on screen is the same no holds barred, NI wit and sardonic, jet black comic take on life that appeared on the page too. American TV regular Richard Grant is lovely and believable as the visiting reporter from the US who came to cover the upcoming elections but is more interested in learning about the difference between the different types of scotch. Access Codes: Unless the book is described as "New," please assume that the book does *not* have an access code.Northern Irish drunken journalist Dan Starkey, makes his biggest mistake when he beds the girlfriend of a local killer. As Dan noted himself, he feels like Richard Hannay in John Buchan’s famous novel The Thirty- Nine Steps.
