In this book we pick up a short time after the events of Book 2 - and things have taken a bit of a turn at the paper. Die Bücher sind einfach immer absolut kurzweilig und durchgekramt, aber so charmant und liebevoll, dass man sie einfach lieben muss! The woman brought in to replace Hannah as assistant editor, we’re not sure whether she’s on our (the newspapers) side, but her addition added plenty of humour, mystery and some excellent action scenes to the story. But is there anyone in the world who can stare down the barrel of Banecroft’s blunderbuss and answer his interview questions without having a breakdown?

This third installment of what has quickly become my favorite Urban Fantasy series played with some of the narrative threads explored in the previous books and moved forward in a very intriguing and quite satisfactory way, offering the by now familiar mix of humor and drama while at the same time delving deeper into some of the main characters, bringing to the surface a few unexpected facets of their personalities. I'm not writing a full review at this point - that will be posted closer to release date - the point of this is to whet your appetite. It’s hard to talk about these books too much without giving away spoilers, but just know that McDonnell is slowly introducing us to the players in his world, whilst still keeping us on our toes, never quite sure who to trust. I was pleased to pick out the ‘correct’ fictional conspiracy theory, which sub-plot was excellently put together.I don't think I can recommend reading this as a standalone but you can definitely read it while not perfectly remembering what happend in the previous one. Each book is somewhat self-contained, meaning that there are no cliff-hangers between books, but of course the characters (and their quirks) carry on from one book to the other, so it would be best to read them in sequence. The story moved at a fast pace, darting us from location to location, twisting and turning until everything was uncovered, and we had a warm, satisfying end. He performed all around the world, had several well-received Edinburgh shows and supported acts such as Sarah Millican and Gary Delaney on tour before hanging up his clowning shoes to concentrate on writing. I patiently await the next instalment of The Stranger Times, a series I hope exists for as long as live, and with the truly mind blowing amount of stories that could be told, I thoroughly expect it too.

There is a new assistant editor to replace Hannah who to Banecroft's disgust has been given the job by the owner over his head. The rest of the staff aren't quite sure what to make of what is happening but they are soon put to work solving the latest mystery.As for Banecroft, he is a man obsessed: since making contact with the voice of his departed wife, he has been so concentrated on unraveling this mystery that he left everything else unravel around him, including his own well-being. I definitely recommend reading this series from the beginning to understand the characters backgrounds.

One of the best things about this book is it continues the intrigue surrounding the different factions vying for power or advantage in this magical world of the Founders and Folk. Don't get me wrong, the first two had some of those, but at this point everyone has to say those things and it's a bit tiresome.Saying that strange things are afoot at the offices of The Stranger Times is a bit like telling someone that the Pope is a Catholic but bear with me because they are weird even by Banecroftian standards. Caimh’s imagination seems to be limitless as the reader is literally taken on a journey of smoke and mirrors. His debut novel, A Man With One of Those Faces - a comic crime novel - was published in 2016 and spawned The Dublin Trilogy books and the spin-off McGarry Stateside series. Hannah has gone back to her husband, Betty the new assistant editor is stranger than your average journo, Grace is up to her ears in an audit, Stella is struggling with her new powers/career/past and Banecroft is .

Besides the humor, there are some of the most heartwarming moments in this series that will leave their marks on you. As promised in the blurb this book resolves a few story arcs that have been with us since the beginning of the series and adds a few more besides. The mysteries that tie the whole story together are perfectly formed and executed and the author appears to be building a whole world that could continue on and on.

Love Will Tear Us Apart is as completely and wonderfully bonkers as the previous two books in this series. In this time of crisis, is her decision to swan off to a fancy new-age retreat run by a celebrity cult really the best thing for anyone? Then something hilarious happened or was said (I feel like I might have to borrow the expressions of tickling one's tonsils from the inside! Some of them have a retort for everything, and within the Times, that made sense because they are a close-knit group. His TV writing work has seen him work on some of the biggest topical comedy shows on British TV, such as the The Sarah Millican Television Programme, Mock the Week and Have I Got News for You.
