Ranging from the Swinging Sixties to the Raving Nineties and with a cast that includes the machiavellian gangster Harry Starks, politicians, bent coppers, actresses and gutter journalists, Arnott’s fictional portrait of cultural change and moral decay is at once sharply funny, relentlessly compelling, and frighteningly real.

Reviews

PRAISE FOR THE LONG FIRM:
Arnott's ability to powerfully resurrect an era is astonishing
Jimmy Boyle, Guardian
The evocation of Sixties London is brilliantly done and the powerful, stylish writing hooks the reader from the first page
Mail on Sunday
PRAISE FOR HE KILLS COPPERS:
Brilliant . . . You won't be able to put it down.
Daily Telegraph
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.
Independent on Sunday
PRAISE FOR TRUECRIME:
Sparklingly witty, immensely profound . . . It should be read as a matter of urgency.
Guardian
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.
The Times
