    Angelmaker - Nick Harkaway

    Kind of spy/thriller/crime/fantasy/comedy type thing, about a London gangster's son going straight as a clockmaker and gets drawn into an exceedingly bizarre plot when he repairs the key for a WW2 doomsday device.

    Funny, well written with very well drawn characters & interesting ideas, nips along at a fair old pace. All round good read, although I found the ending a bit rushed and rather unsatisfying.

    Well worth picking up though.
