Well if Week 1 was a gentle phasing in of quality from Round 1 with some pretty ropey ties, Week 2 hits us right between the eyes with the other end of things. This is the week that if I’d been feeling a little fast and loose with the draw I could have opened with. There’s some mouth watering ties and some decisions that will make your eyes water. THIS is what Round 2 is all about…

I really like Grey Suit - there, said it. I know it doesn’t have a massive following, but amongst Uncle Pat’s modern works it's one of my favs and was one of the best vehicles for his recurring themes (and boy do they reoccur!). Button Man though is a classic and could well go far in this tourney so starts as strong favourite here:

Just reply in this thread naming your favourite thrill of these two series at the beginning of your post (or use Bold tags so I can spot it easily) and say what you like about these wonderful stories after that.

Match ends early on the morning of Sunday 30th January  and the winner gets a place in Round 3 (of 9!!!).

What on Earth is ALL of this?

For those that need ‘um and can be bothered to follow ‘um there’s some simple rules

Any questions, just ask as ever - and have FUN!

Button Man
When I die, I want to die like my grandfather who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car.

Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

I have the Get Harry Ex collection and love it. Haven't read Hitman's Daughter yet but will get around to it eventually, hoping it's good too.

Greysuit plays like a more political Button Man but for me Wagner and Ranson nail it.

Button Man.

Nah. There’s always one contrary bugger.

Clearly this is going to be close 😉.

I hope this swings the balance: Button Man.
