"No offence, Taoiseach ... but you're talking out of your hole"
The line, which opens Garbhan Downey's novel Running Mates, confirms my suspicion that Downey might interest readers who enjoy Shane Maloney's novels about the put-upon Australian politico Murray Whelan. I am one of those readers.
The book is also the only comic crime novel I can think of that acknowledges the assistance of a political science professor.
More to come.
