Book Review – Dirty Barry by Mark Farrer

First published, 2018

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

The story follows, Barry – a dentist with a predilection for womanising. Having been something of a ladies’ man, when Barry’s life starts to lose its impetus, he finds himself disengaged from his overweight wife and increasingly drawn to the married female patients from his clinic in Peebles.

Enter Cullen, a drifter and fixer of problems. After a bit of a set-to, he finds himself in urgent need of dental treatment. When one of Barry’s conquests finds out just what he’s capable of, it seems only a chance encounter will save her from Barry’s treachery.

A cracker of a story, with powerfully believable characters – I found myself despising Barry as thoroughly as if I’d known him for years – and some very funny lines, I really enjoyed this story and will look forward to reading more from this author.
