Oceans Eleven meets Drive meets Lee Child in this extraordinary pulse-pounding debut from the best new thriller writer of the year
'Fast, hard and knowing: this is an amazing debut full of intrigue, tradecraft and suspense. Read it immediately!' Lee Child (author of the Jack Reacher novels)
I make things disappear. It’s what I do. This time I’m tidying up the loose ends after a casino heist gone bad. The loose ends being a million cash. But I only have 48 hours, and there’s a guy out there who wants my head in a bag.
He’ll have to find me first. They don’t call me the Ghostman for nothing...
“Quite astonishing . . . Mature, impeccably researched and written with supreme panache, it moves like a black mamba and is every bit as deadly. Fierce, taut and with an intensity that burns the lungs, I doubt whether there will be a debut thriller to match it this year, or even next”
“Startling and sparkling assurance . . . A star is born? Quite possibly”
“Full of authentic detail, seedy locations and a high corpse count, it keeps you hooked until the very last page”
“Brilliantly clever, gripping and action-packed. Utterly original and bound to become a big-budget movie.”
“Fast, hard and knowing: this is an amazing debut full of intrigue, tradecraft and suspense. Read it immediately!”
“A slam-bang, pedal-to-the-metal crime story . . . I absolutely loved this book and cannot recommend it highly enough”
“Impressive . . . It's one to buckle yourself in for because the ride is fast, thrilling and constantly veering all over the road with a very exciting new talent at the wheel”
Simon Toyne, author of SANCTUS and THE KEY
“Hip and stylish . . . a winning blend of tough action and authentic detail, and an enigma of a lead character that you'll want to meet again. An outstanding debut”
CHRIS EWAN, author of SAFE HOUSE
“An astonishing debut . . . Hobbs is up there with the best . . . a masterpiece ”
“Smoking-fast . . . the debut of a gifted crime writer who will only get better”
New York Times
