    This is a splendidly entertaining short novel about small-time crook Eddie Hyde’s attempt to go straight after a spell in prison. As if it isn’t enough that the eponymous hero has to fight against the temptations to make quick money on his release, and to suppress his lusty feelings for his probation officer, he is then forced to battle against his devilish alter ego Dr Jake Kell (really!) who creates havoc and constantly puts Eddie’s stability in danger. A few paragraphs into this novel and it is already apparent that the author is a seasoned writer. From the simple structure to the accurate editing this is a professionally presented piece of work with perfect pacing (zippy) and length (43,000 words) for this genre of fiction. The crackling dialogue and concise narrative make Hyde a delight to read and it is highly recommended for anybody who enjoys a brisk, no-nonsense entertaining novel. Great fun.
