Arm This pacey, laugh-out-loud comedy spy thriller introduces Bristo Trabant - no ordinary secret agent. The plot: When notorious arms trafficker ‘Gunboat’ Charlie Chavez steps back onto the radar, MI6 must keep tabs – but they have a problem. With no field operatives available, they have to send IT geek Bristo Trabant to the French Riviera, with the brief to just observe. Armed only with The Beginner’s Guide To Being A Secret Agent and the knowledge that he is completely the wrong man for the job, Trabant does his best to keep a low profile – until it happens: just one wrong word, uttered at precisely the wrong moment, which results in the most devastating of consequences. Only the most ingenious, left-field strategy can possibly save the day. But first our man must somehow survive Gunboat’s legendary temper. And will the mysterious hostess with the gun-shaped garter be friend or foe? Will the talking sharks speak up in Bristo’s favour? And will Her Majesty’s Royal Navy taskforce get there in time? From the glitzy sheen of Cannes to the toughest barrios of Panama City, trouble escalates at breakneck speed. And if that wasn’t enough, there’s now an even darker agenda at work, and one fuelled by a greed and treachery so deep it threatens the very stability of the British Government. Bristo Trabant really should’ve known better. The question is: can he possibly survive? There’s only one way to find out...

    Good Men Should Know Better rattles along, taking the reader from one glamorous location to another, rather in the manner of a Bond film, but one we can all join in. The hapless Bristo Trabant gets caught up in Secret Service activities that he's totally unsuited to - at that point it could have turned into Mr Bean or Austin Powers, but fortunately Bristo's a more sympathetic character than that. Dominic Canty can't resist a joke. Some are good while some are (presumably intentionally) very bad.

Dominic Canty can't resist a joke. Some are good while some are (presumably intentionally) very bad. There is a lot of word play and amusing descriptions. Characters are either honourable or very bad, but all memorable. The action is fast-paced and well described, with almost cartoon-like sound effects. I would recommend this as beach or commuter reading, as well as for getting teenage boys who are reluctant readers into a longer narrative.
