About The Last Will of Sven Anderson
When Harry Spittle, nearly qualified as a solicitor, is approached to write a Will for old acquaintance Sven Andersen, he is somewhat surprised but rather pleased. That pleasure sours after he finds that the Will Sven actually signs is very different to the one he has drawn up, with Harry as the executor. Disappointment turns to horror when he discovers that Sven has been winding up his late father’s criminal empire and a number of not very nice people are interested in the Will’s contents.
If he is to remain in one piece, able to continue his career in the law and save his on-off relationship with his girlfriend Penny, who is unfortunately under suspicion of murder, he needs to find out what’s happened to the money and distribute it according to Sven’s wishes.
The trouble is Sven has not only hidden the assets but also the identities of those who benefit. Harry will have to solve a fiendish puzzle Sven has left behind with the help of his sister Dina before his world comes crashing down. With so many people depending on him, Harry knows it’s time for him to grow up – it’s just that he really, really doesn’t want to.
Set in 1981 to the backdrop of punk, Thatcherite politics and an upcoming Royal wedding, this is a book for those who like their nostalgia served with a side of humour and a dash of optimism all wrapped up in a compelling mystery.

About Dead Flies and Sherry Trifle FREE from October 30th to November 3rd 2019
It’s summer 1976 and hotter than Hades. Harry Spittle, nineteen, is home from university, aiming to earn some money to go on holiday and maybe get laid. He expects he will be bored rigid, but the appearance of an old family friend, Charlie Jepson, his psychopathic son, Claude, and predatory wife Monica changes that. As his parents’ marriage implodes, Harry’s problems mount; before he knows it he’s in debt up to his ears and dealing in drugs. Things go from bad to worse when he is stabbed. He needs money fast, but now his job is at risk, his sister is in trouble and he has discovered a family secret that could destroy all he holds dear. Will Harry have to join forces with the local criminal mastermind to survive the summer and save his family? Can he regain some credibility and self-respect? Most importantly will he finally get laid?
One of the reviews for Dead Flies and Sherry Trifle on Goodreads
Harry struggles in a more and more complicated web…
Harry Spittle is home from first year at university with not exactly spectacular exam results. But that’s the least of his worries. Stephen McNoble, a violent bully-boy from university, is holidaying in Harry’s home town. Even worse Stephen’s father knows Harry’s parents. Things seem to be going better when Harry gets a holiday job at Hemmingway’s, the local upmarket hotel, but things get very complicated and go from bad to worse.
This novel is full of entanglements, confusions and disasters, but light heartedly romps along, endearing the reader to Harry, despite all his weaknesses and faults. It is not a short read, but is entertaining all the way. One of the important themes is the values of family and friends, and the idea that we don’t necessarily cope if we feel we have to be totally self-reliant. But don’t get the wrong idea: this is not at all a ‘heavy’ read. Humour certainly runs throughout the book and you can expect the odd chuckle as you read.
Although this could certainly be described as a ‘guy’s book,’ Dina, Penny and Natalie, among others, represent the female perspective. There are plenty of capable women here, although not all are ‘good,’ indeed femininity in its many and varied forms are well represented.
There are a few mildly spicy scenes and some violence, but as I said this is mostly a light entertaining book. I’m certainly glad I read this book.
