Brilliant ... you won't be able to put it down.
Many thought that Jake Arnott's debut, 'The Long Firm', was good but not quite as good as the hype tried to convince us it was. Frankly, Hemingway, Hammett and Greene together would have been hard pressed to come up with anything that good. His eagerly awaited follow-up, 'He Kills Coppers', has arrived - and it's better.
Compelling ... Arnott is a writer of many shades and, as in his debut, The Long Firm, shows his penchant for combining challenging storylines with strong storytelling.
Arnott is a craftsman at what he does, a real cabinetmaker of pulp fiction, with everything nicely dovetailed
Propels Arnott further into a league of his own
Easily as good, if not better, than the superb Long Firm ... A stylish tour-de-force
