Truly fascinating ... Arnott's ability to powerfully resurrect an era is astonishing
One of the smartest, funniest and original novels you will read all year ... Arnott is quite brilliant at excavating the cultural minutiae of the time to bring the period vividly to life
Compulsive reading, powerful writing with an evocative feel for the bleaker side of the Swinging Sixties
Gripping ... slumming it doesn't get much better than this
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
Pulp Fiction so polished as to be immaculate
The powerful, stylish writing hooks the reader from the first page. One of the most impressive first novels I've read in years.
