Item description for Two to Tango by Peter Guttridge...

"Brilliant one-liners, lightning action, lots of suspense and very funny-self-deprecating Madrid is fast becoming my favorite hero."-Good Housekeeping (UK)

Journalist Nick Madrid finds himself up the proverbial creek-the Amazon-without a paddle when he's dispatched to South America to report on a Rock Against Drugs tour.

As if monstrous spiders, piranhas, kidnapping and tiny, spiky fish that swim up a stream of urine to lodge where a man least wants a tiny, spiky fish to lodge aren't enough, Madrid is drawn into the mystery of who is trying to kill the tour's headlining, larger-than-life, pain-in-the-posterior rock megastar Otis Barnes.

Madrid soon discovers that the murdering queue forms on the left for Mr. Barnes. The question is: Can he prevent Barnes' date with death at the final concert at Machu Picchu?

Peter Guttridge is the Royal Literary Fund writing fellow at the University of Southampton and teaches creative writing. His career was launched when he wrote a comic piece for a British magazine about his woeful experiences attempting to busk in New Orleans when he could neither sing nor play guitar. This same magazine sent him on a dizzying range of assignments, from going on a tour of Scandinavia with a rock band to performing as a male stripper in London's Soho. He has written about music, film, literature and the comedy industry for The Times, The Guardian, The Telegraph, The Observer and The Sunday Times. He lives in Sussex on the edge of the South Downs National Park.

British People In Hot Weather  Nov 22, 2005
Two to Tango is another hilarious book by Peter Guttridge. This series will keep you in stitches while you struggle to solve the mystery. I recommend this series for fans of British mysteries and British humor.
amusing caper  May 31, 2005
On the this site freelance journalist Nick Madrid is on assignment to follow the Rock Against Drugs tour. His friend (just friend skeptics) Bridget has accompanied him though traveling by boat is not one of her favorite transportation choices. Nick's target is a former rock superstar making a major comeback Otis Barnes.

However, Nick can't even go to the bathroom without being mugged, eluding spiders that make Daniels' Arachnophobia look a garden variety type or take a helpful dive amongst hungry piranhas. Nick's cool with that as this is the this site norm. Barnes is another story as he has fallen off the drug and alcohol temperance wagon in spite of touring against drugs; he is a nasty drunk and Nick is his punching bag. As they head towards Peru for the last concert, someone tries to kill Barnes. Though much of the touring members and staff have motive to harm the nasty superstar, who would murder him remains a question that Nick plans to resolve before the rocker's final curtain call.

As is the norm when Madrid is on a story, readers will finish in a one sitting six-pack as the hero provides his usual amusing asides to the audience and to the antagonists whether they be a mugger, a kidnapper, a deadly fish, or a boxing druggie rocker. The current story line is humorous as the reporter tries to prevent a culprit from killing "Bad News" Barnes (not the basketball great). Fans of the series will enjoy paddling a alongside Madrid while newcomers will want to read his humorous capers (see NO LAUGHING MATTER and A GHOST OF A CHANCE).
