SALFORD AUTHORS AGAIN EXPOSE CRUEL AQUATIC DOLPHIN CIRCUS
 

Star date: 2nd March 2014

GANGSTER DOLPHIN, SEXED UP DOLPHINS AND MORE IN THIS MUST READ SALFORD BLOCKBUSTER

The Perfect Pair: The Mirror Cracks (Matador)
David C Holroyd and Tracy J Holroyd

Anyone who thinks that a dolphin's permanent smile means they're happy, needs to read The Perfect Pair books by Salford authors David C Holroyd and Tracy J Holroyd.

After last year's all-diving, all-splashing `factional' expose of what goes on behind closed dolphinarium doors, comes the sensational sequel, The Mirror Cracks, complete with gangster, sexed up and screwed up dolphins swimming around their psychic trainer.

Last year, the controversial `factional' dolphin blockbuster, The Perfect Pair: The Enchanted Mirror was unleashed on the world by Salford brother and sister authors David C Holroyd and Tracy J Holroyd.

The Salford Star, totally recommending the book, stated… "Everyone loves dolphins. And everyone loves going to see dolphins perform – jumping through hoops, flicking beach balls, having their teeth brushed. They seem to love it. But what happens if the dolphins don't feel like performing or won't learn the tricks? Ever heard of a `shake session'?' (see full review and interview with the authors – click here).

Now, brace yourself for the second book of the trilogy…

THE PERFECT PAIR: THE MIRROR CRACKS

Part two of the Perfect Pair sees the aquatic circus world turn mammal asylum as the ringmasters of capitalism pull the profit strings even tighter around the psyches of both man and dolphins.

The cruel world of performing pool animals gets even madder with a gangster dolphin bullying his captive companions, taking on his trainer and deliberately flashing his, er, dolphinhood at little girls in the audience. Meanwhile, a female dolphin attempts to seduce her trainer, as her intended dolphin mate gets his sex kicks from a plastic penguin. Not so much Flippa as everyone's flipped. Not so much The Mirror Cracks as everyone cracks up.

It all takes place in the filthy, murky, sleazy, unfiltered waters of a corporate dolphinarium that's a metaphor for the filthy, murky, sleazy, unfiltered waters of big business where money rules the waves of humanity.

It's sad, it's mad and the gangster dolphin's b-a-a-a-d but it makes you want to dive into every page to keep reading what weirdness will happen next behind the scenes of the freak show that passes for aquatic entertainment.

Get the first brilliant book, The Enchanted Mirror*, then experience this sensational sequel. I guarantee you'll gobble it up like a dolphin showered with reward fish…and be clapping like a sea lion for more…
