Pre-Release Mini-Review: The Dead Men Stood Together

The Dead Men Stood Together - Chris Priestley

Read it if:


* you can’t resist a rollicking tale set on the high seas


* you have ever been held captive by an elderly person as they regale you with far-fetched stories from the distant past


* you are inclined to complain heartily and predict impending doom should the weather stray more than a couple of degrees either side of your preferred temperature


* you have an objectionable uncle (or indeed any type of irritating relative) and you would love to witness their come-uppance…particularly if that come-uppance involves the wearing of something large, ridiculous and foul-smelling as a means of public ridicule
