‘Whenever Jake Arnott’s got a new book out, I drop everything knowing that the next couple of hours are going to be pure gangland bliss.’ DAVID BOWIE

Ranging from the Swinging Sixties to the Raving Nineties and with a cast that includes Machiavellian gangsters, politicians, bent coppers, actresses and gutter journalists, Jake Arnott’s classic trilogy is at once sharply funny, relentlessly compelling, and frighteningly real.

THE LONG FIRM is the cult bestseller that launched Jake Arnott as one of the most exciting new voices of the decade: ‘A gangster novel every bit as cool, stylish and venomous as the London in which it’s set’ (Independent on Sunday)

HE KILLS COPPERS is a ‘mesmerizing, brilliant’ (New York Times Book Review) literary thriller that delves into corruption on both sides of the law and at the heart of the state.

TRUECRIME is a blistering take on Cool Britannia and London’s underbelly in the 1990s, and ‘the most expansive, ironical and funny novel of the series’ (Daily Telegraph)


Compulsive reading, powerful writing with an evocative feel for the bleaker side of the Swinging Sixties
The Times
A great read from start to finish, gathering pace and depth as it goes . . . A '60s gangster novel with a compelling plot, poignant characters and plenty of wit.
Henry Shukman, New York Times Book Review
Jake Arnott has created a gangster story every bit as cool, stylish and venomous as the London in which it is set, an English original as sharp and lethal as a Saville Row lapel
Independent On Sunday
You won't be able to put it down.
Mark Sanderson, Sunday Telegraph
Arnott is a craftsman at what he does, a real cabinetmaker of pulp fiction, with everything nicely dovetailed
Sunday Times
Mesmerizing. Brilliant.
New York Times Book Review
A rollercoaster journey through a landscape most honest, decent people wouldn't know existed . . . sparklingly witty, immensely profound . . . it should be read as a matter of urgency
Erwin James, Guardian
The most expansive, ironical and funny novel of the series
David Isaacson, Daily Telegraph
Arnott delivers a beacon-bright satire . . . a literary triumph
