PRAISE FOR THE LONG FIRM:
Arnott's ability to powerfully resurrect an era is astonishing
The evocation of Sixties London is brilliantly done and the powerful, stylish writing hooks the reader from the first page
PRAISE FOR HE KILLS COPPERS:
Brilliant . . . You won't be able to put it down.
The story and its characters ride perfectly within the setting, to the benefit of both . . . You don't have to be a crime fan to enjoy Arnott's books, you just have to be interested in the lives of ordinary, fallible people.
PRAISE FOR TRUECRIME:
Sparklingly witty, immensely profound . . . It should be read as a matter of urgency.
Arnott pinpoints with devastating accuracy how today's world leads to the survival of the shallowest. His ear for low-life patois is as sharp as ever and the narrative proceeds at a cracking pace.
