Book review: Royal Flush

Royal Flush follows The King, who has become king due to no-one else wanting the role. The King enjoys executing people, which might go some way to explaining his unpopularity in the Kingdom. As well as not being liked, he is ridiculed by the newspaper and unable to find a wife.

The King is followed in four separate chapters, named after the suits in a deck of cards. There are common themes and characters running throughout and the author makes several knowing references throughout the novel. The attempts of the King to find love are amusing, but the funniest part is when he is deposed and becomes a much-loved outlaw. If you are looking for an easy-to-read comedy with some excellent moments, I would recommend this book.

Rating (out of 5): ****
