PERMISSION TO KILL TAKES ON FELONY FISTS!

PERMISSION TO KILL TAKES ON FELONY FISTS!

AUSTRALIAN C.O.B.R.A.S. AGENT DAVID FOSTER DISCOVERS SPY CLUES IN FELONY FISTS OVER AT HIS PERMISSION TO KILL BLOG . . . (DAVID IS ALSO RESPONSIBLE FOR THE COOL 'ALTERNATE' PULP COVERS FOR THE FIGHT CARD SERIES) . . .

In some ways Felony Fists is predictable – you know exactly where the story is heading – but that is half the fun. It’s not the destination that counts, but the journey, and traveling along with Paul’s characters was an absolute joy. While reading the book, I must have looked like a right proper berk, with a cheesy grin from ear to ear. The tag at the end of Chapter 4, when Police Chief Parker assigns Flynn to his next case had me laughing out loud.

Now you’re probably thinking that this doesn’t sound too ‘spy’! And you’re absolutely right. It’s a pulp thriller about boxing, but it also happens to be written by fellow C.O.B.R.A.S. (Coalition Of Bloggers wRiting About Spies) agent Paul Bishop, and rest assured he is not going to allow the story to pass without at least a nod to one of his favourite Spy TV shows of the ’60s . . . can you spot it?
