Run of the mill
Middle aged men (sorry, not being ageist and sexist!) like the central character. And who want young/glamorous/clever women falling for them like they did for Harry.
Yes, I won't be reading any more by this author. There was no feeling for Liverpool or its people - change a few names and it could be set anywhere.
Someone who does more than RP and dreadful scouse/generic northerner accents. There is a wide range of professional class Liverpool accents.
Terribly cliched, in plot, characters and turns of phase ("a voice as sharp as a chainsaw"). Ludicrous Grand Guignol climax.
