"DON'T MISS!" 

    Fat Ollie's Book by Ed McBain (Orion, pounds 12.99)

    Det Steve Carella plays second fiddle to one of the best fictional characters around: Det Oliver Wendell Weeks - aka Fat Ollie.  Racist, sexist, homophobic and obnoxious, he's a genuine laugh a minute. Politician and philandering husband Lester Henderson has been murdered. A massive drugs bust is going down. And Fat Ollie's first novel has gone walkabout. Simple, clever and very funny. But it's Fat Ollie who steals the show.
