Nigel's last book 'The Smoking Gun'

"Outstanding" - Birmingham Mail

It's tempting just to pull this quote out of an on-line article by John Duckers about “The Smoking Gun”: "A brilliant if somewhat racy style."

He actually said a bit more than that. To find out more,

"Excellent....Five out of five" - David Cooper. Read the review....

“It is too good to allow it to linger on the word of a few mouths. I kept tittering away to myself.”

“I am half way and it’s been lots of fun… Just finished it. It is so true to real political life.” 

“I tend not to read too many novels and if I'm honest the only reason I read this is because you wrote it. I wouldn't have chosen it in a bookshop. That said I thought it was a good read.”

“It’s real and absorbing and often funny and always engagingly heartless.”

About Nigel:

Nigel Hastilow (born 1956) is a columnist, author, businessman and politician. He is a former editor of The Birmingham Post and was Conservative Party candidate for Birmingham Edgbaston in the 2001 general election.

In April 2007, Hastilow was selected a prospective parliamentary candidate for the Conservative Party for the Halesowen and Rowley Regis constituency but stepped down after he received criticism about a newspaper column he wrote for the Express & Star which included the statement "Enoch Powell was right", sparking a national controversy about immigration.

Hastilow was born in Birmingham and educated at Mill Hill School in London. After graduating from the University of Birmingham, he trained as a journalist. Working for a variety of local newspapers in Birmingham, Hastilow became first political correspondent and then editor of The Birmingham Post.

He subsequently became a columnist, set up his own publishing company which he later sold and also worked for the Institute of Directors and the Institute of Chartered Accountants. He writes regularly for the Express & Star and is author of two books of political essays, “The Last of England” and “Tomorrow’s England”. He continues to speak at various politics-related gatherings. He has appeared on a range of topical TV and radio shows.

“I bought two copies of your book a few months ago (beginning of November). Both my wife and I enjoyed reading it and liked your wit. I know it is a work of fiction, but it did make us believe that this is how candidates are selected (or could be). I know that there were a couple of things which stood out and we felt you had hit the nail on the head. I only wish we had written them down at the time. There was I thought some mention to Margaret Thatcher which I forgotten that was funny. Page 51 – BD Before Dick was funny. Page 90 – I read Machiavelli at University. I haven't forgotten Peter Mandelson.”

“Great style… It really is a good read.”
