Double Kiss is the second book of Ronnie O'Sullivan's Soho Trilogy (read my review for Framed here).
Yes, that Ronnie O'Sullivan. The Snooker World Championship has been on for the last fortnight culminating in tonight's final, and although Ronnie didn't make it to the quarter finals this year it seemed an apt time to read Double Kiss, and what a ride!
The opening chapter starts with:
'It's coming home... It's coming home... It's coming... Football's coming home...
And with eleven words the book time travels you to the nineties for Euro '96.
The story is a perfect for a middle-trilogy book. The adventure is fast and furious without giving away too many answers, it leaves you wanting to see how the James family saga ends. It's difficult not to think of Ronnie's stance and gait when reading the adventures of Frankie James. He's tall, dark, and handsome with a cocky manner and armed cheeky glint in his eye.
Framed was published in November 2016, Double Kiss in November 2017, let's hope November 2018 brings us the final frame in this Soho set.
