Flake, by Matthew Dooley (Jonathan Cape, 2020)

An ice-cream seller becomes involved in a combined family feud and turf war. A gentle deadpan scoop of North West whimsy, with just enough melancholy in it to stop it getting cloying. Some neat observations and a couple of decent gags; pleasing all round.

My own books are here, if that’s your thing. Newest is noir thriller East of England.
