I opened the door and a bell rang. The secretary-bird was at her desk writing things in a big book.

I opened the door and a bell rang. She said, ‘Hello Eva, come for your money?’ ‘What you think?’

The metaphors are all the more colorful coming from a tough Londoner.

Eva Wylie, the heavyweight wrestler heroine of Bucket Nut, returns  . The metaphors are all the more colorful coming from a tough Londoner. What I like best about this book is that Liza Cody does not spell everything out for us, she assumes that we are more worldly than Eva Wylie and while Eva may misunderstand a situation, she assumes we won't. In fact it is this ability to allow us to see her fallibility that makes us understand why people bother with Eva at all.

He rolled in whiffing of bitter as usual when I was just about finished and ready for my shower. Where’s all that lovely hot buttered twat?’. Eva’s mucky mates,’ Pete Carver said. my birthday – all those prezzies just waiting to be unwrapped. What you got for us today, Eva?’. A snootful of knucks,’ I said, backing off. ‘That reminds me,’ Gruff Gordon said. His hairy eyebrows scrunched down, and his shoulders went up to keep his ears company. I beat it to the ladies’ shower. I’d thought I was too early for them

Eva Wylie, the heavyweight wrestler heroine of "Bucket Nut", returns.

Liza Cody does a wonderful job of telling a story from the viewpoint of a lower class, not-very-bright, abused-as-a-child, female professional wrestler in London. The narrator is simultaneously sad, horrifying and funny. I'm sorry the book is out of print.

User reviews
Jugami
Although this book took a bit of getting into -- it's a very strong story told by a very strong main character in a "noir" style of speaking -- once I got into it, I loved it. I thought, "I'll have to read the rest of the series" (this is the second) and learned that there are only three in all. Author, please explain?

The main character, Eva, is a female wrestler in London. She's tough -- very tough -- and very independent. She has attitude and problems with authority. And underneath it all, she's a kind person, despite what she says about herself being so tough and not caring about others.

Eva gets involved with a bunch of streetwalkers. One of them has been beaten to death, and the victim's sister is an old acquaintance of Eva (Eva claims not to be friends with her). Eva agrees to teach them self-defense and more and more gets pulled into their lives.

This book doesn't really focus on "who done it" -- and the ending isn't neat and tidy, like most mysteries. But it's great writing with a strong central female character who is likable despite her extreme roughness and quick temper.

I look forward to reading the other two in the series and wish the author would revive this character.

Eva Wylie returns in her 2nd book and once again she's up front about her outlook on life. In fact her philosophy is summed up right there on page 1 of the book when she says:

"What's the point in being nice to someone who can't remember how nice you've been? Tell me that. The only point in doing someone a favour is if they remember and do you a favour back."
She's no saint and is happy to let everyone know. You get a pretty good idea how she came about that philosophy when she actually does a favour for someone and then is promptly plagued by one problem after the other as a result. When a local prostitute is murdered, the girl's sister and a few of the other local prostitutes come to Eva to ask her to teach them self defence. They figure Eva would be a good choice owing to one of her jobs as a professional wrestler, where she fights under the guise of The London Lassassin. Of course, Eva's first response is a resounding "Sod off!!" until the mention of a financial incentive is forthcoming. In a very entertaining chain of events, Eva's life begins to crumble around her.

The usually simple formula of a detective story has been hopelessly convoluted by dirty reality, and Eva Wylie's slightly twisted perception of it. I've
never met a protagonist so ugly, tough, and stubborn,
and she's female!
Eva's arms look a lot better than
her face; the wrestling fans don't call her Bucket Nut (Bucket
Head) for nothing. But underneath her hard-as-nails
exterior, she's way more vulnerable than she wants
to be. Eva ends up using her muscle and street know-how
to try to even up the score in one of the oldest
battles known to the city scene. Prostitutes in the
area are getting brutally killed, and one of them
happens to be the sister of her old sidekick, Crystal.
Crystal wants justice for her sister, and she doesn't
hesitate to manipulate Eva into helping out. Eva
just wants peace - a few good workouts, a wild
fight in the ring now and then, and hanging out
with her junkyard dogs. But Crystal has the tenacity
of a Monkey Wrench, and won't let her be until she
feels her sister is avenged.
It's a non-stop ride
through the seamiest streets of London, with the
most unusual, nasty, oddly laughable and ultimately
admirable heroine I've
ever read. Go, Bucket Nut!!

A jacket quote notes that the LA Times reviewer called this book a tour de force, and I have to agree. Liza Cody does a wonderful job of telling a story from the viewpoint of a lower class, not-very-bright, abused-as-a-child, female professional wrestler in London. The narrator is simultaneously sad, horrifying and funny. I'm sorry the book is out of print. I'd like to read more by Liza Cody, and especially more with the one-of-a-kind character of Eva Wylie. If you want a unique point of view and a good read, keep and eye out for this one.

Just came across this and I'm going to read the next one in the series immediately! The other reviews explain this unique female lead and her environment. I like the book because it is quirky, consistent, a bit of an inspiration, and slyly humorous. Eva Wylie is a contender!

I wish there were more Eva Wylie books. I would read them non-stop if I could! Eva is so loveable and funny even with all of the tragedies of her life. She views life from her own desperate background, and her viewpoints are endearing. Her vocabulary is entertaining, with the London slang.
