I recommend The Cut SO HIGHLY! A fast-paced thriller set in the glamorous/seedy movie world, it's DIFFERENT. Lovely characters with the sweetest relationship, it kept me guessing
Marian Keyes
It works a treat, with jokes never far away even when the odd duo are in peril, sharply drawn supporting characters and evocative 1990s flashbacks
Sunday Times
I could not put this stomach lurching, zig-zagging triumph of a thriller down
Scottish Field
A smart, sassy and surprisingly tender crime novel
Irish Times
The Cut is both strikingly original and definitively Brookmyre - proving, yet again, that there's nothing he can't do in the genre
Mick Herron
Multi-award-winning Brookmyre once again serve up a delightful cocktail of murder and mayhem with totally engaging central characters
Irish Independent
A twisty spiralling rabbit hole of a book that draws you deeper with every chapter. Brilliantly original, compulsively readable, right to the final page
Ruth Ware
Another twisting, turning thriller that displays Brookmyre's original touch
This is a special novel. A brilliant, original, up-to-the-minute tale with all of the dark, edgy, humorous brilliance we've come to expect from one of the finest crime fiction writers in the world. The Cut is simply superb
Abir Mukherjee
Dark, heartfelt, stylish and thrilling, The Cut is the kind of wonderfully original tale I just adore. Chris Brookmyre is a storytelling mastermind
Chris Whitaker
A riveting, original thriller that also tackles preconceptions about age, class and ability
Sunday Post
