“Vitality is great, imagination unflagging, enjoyment constant” – Times Literary Supplement

“Told with great vividness and zest” – Violet Grant, Daily Telegraph

“One detects a novelist at work...swift, deft strokes...It is very funny too” – Richard Barkley, Sunday Express

Graham Lord’s first novel, a tongue-in-cheek spoof thriller which came second in a Panther/Macmillan First Crime Novel competition in 1969 as runner-up to Peter Lovesey’s novel
Wobble to Death, the first of Lovesey’s many highly-praised crime novels. In Marshmallow Pie – a title taken from the Beatles’ song Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds – a young English reporter investigates a murderous underground war in London between two gangs of black and white Rhodesian exiles who are racing to find a magical new drug, and to do so he has to infiltrate London's Swinging Sixties sub-culture of hippies, drugs and Flower Power.
