Touch my Heart

Touch my Heart by Yong Pease

Aberystwyth Mon Amour

by Malcolm Pryce

Schoolboys are disappearing all over Aberystwyth and nobody knows why. Louie Knight, the town's private investigator knows that this case is going to take all his contacts to solve and maybe more besides.

The review from the Times Literary Supplement catches the essence of this first novel from Pryce well when it says the book is very black and very funny. It mixes satire, farce, fantasy and comic strip in a world where The Famous Five meets Raymond Chandler. The Daily Telegraph says that it wishes all first novels could be written with such panache and abundant comic talent.

A must for anyone who has visited Aber and if you haven't then book your ticket now!

This copy is inscribed as having been bought in Aberystwyth Arts Centre.
