Book Description

Three children with extraordinary gifts.

Two detectives trying to solve a five-year-old case.

One man in a mental institute who ties them all together.

Detective Samantha Banter is assigned a cold case involving the murder of a seven-year-old boy.

Sam's daughter, Maryann, is quiet and withdrawn. She befriends Thomas and Christopher, who, like her, have a secret--gifts that are a result of traumatic episodes in their pasts.

Clarence Hynes has been locked up in the mental institute for a crime he committed two years ago. Clarence, however, is burdened with something far worse.

Can Sam find the young boy's killer? Will Maryann, Thomas, and Christopher share their secret? How does Clarence link them all together?

THE PAPERBOYS CLUB is a supernatural thriller with twists and turns that lead to a shocking conclusion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Join the club April 14, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
After reading Mobashar Qureshi's first novel, RACE, I was very impressed and looked forward to reading The Paperboys Club. Well, I'm happy to say that he again has not disappointed. The natural progression as a writer is evident, and he stays true to the style that has made him successful. The story development is great, and he still manages to find the ability to add humour to this story as well. As some other reviewers have mentioned, Bashir does rival Rupret for most uniquely entertaining character in a novel! Join the club, and read The Paperboys Club!

3.0 out of 5 stars The Paperboy's Club October 31, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
A crime thriller, with supernatural elements and a touch of humour - this book was an enjoyable and entertaining read. There may be some aspects of the writing style that could be improved; this in no way detracts, however, from the characterisation and storyline, which are both very good. This book shows a lot of promise and hopefully there will be a sequel; in any case I'm looking forward to reading some of his other work.

I received this ebook free from librarything as a giveaway for October 2011.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Paperboys Club by Mobashar Qureshi August 6, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Enjoyable Crime novel featuring female detective Sam Banter and her male partner Frederick Bashir. The heroine is a single mother bringing up a ten year old daughter and she is given a "cold case" involving a black child murdered five years before and which remains unsolved. She is up for promotion to Detective Sergeant against a male Detective with the winner the first to solve their respective "cold cases". Maryann ,her daughter who is gifted joins up in school with three gifted boys to form the Paperboys club. Throw-in a patient at a mental asylum, Clarence who can "see" and "feel" things around people and you have the make-up of a supernatural thriller.
I read this on an island off the south-west coast of Ireland during my holidays and it was a wonderful page-turner. Thanks to the author.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable October 10, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
An enjoyable dectective novel with a slight supernatural twist! I especially enjoyed the banter between Sam, the protagonist, and her partner, Bashir. I also enjoyed reading from the children's point of view. I did, however, feel that more variety in sentence structure would have made the novel even more pleasant. I would still recommend this to anyone who is a fan of mystery novels!

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable read October 1, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a good detective novel. It might have been a better book without the supernatural angle; at least, without the inclusion of the children. That part of the book was the least successful as far as the writing style and story went. As someone else mentioned,there are bits of storyline that are never actually realized. It wants a little editing. Overall, though, it was a decent book and I would read another by this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Compelling Psychological Thriller January 9, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I've read and enjoyed both of Mobashar Qureshi's previous novels - 'R.A.C.E.' and 'The October Five' . One thing about this ambitious writer is he chooses not to repeat himself from novel to novel. Here, he uses a multi-protagonist story told from the point of view of three compelling characters; a female police detective, her 'gifted' daughter and a psych patient whose powers cause him great mental and physical anguish. The plot weaves these disparate elements together in a rich narrative about familial love, an innocence lost but regained and the tragedy that befalls certain individuals despite society's efforts to 'fix them'. Add to that a great cold case murder mystery and you have the ingredients of a satisfying thriller. Looking forward to more great stories from this talented novelist.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but too many unanswered questions. December 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like the book but I have so many questions that remain unanswered in this book. It seems like there should be a sequel or something. The ending seemed like the beginning of another story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unusual mystery March 8, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Qureshi's latest is an e-book. A slight change from his earlier books this is not a `thriller" but a "supernatural thriller" (a nice designation, that) . A strange cast of characters, the connections between them are revealed gradually but intriguingly. And in Fred Bashir, the implacable partner of female detective Sam Banter, we have a comic character that fair bids to rival Qureshi's first creation, Jon Rupret, in the hilarity-sweepstakes! `Nuff said!
