Praise for Ghostman

“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”

DAILY MAIL

“Startling and sparkling assurance . . . A star is born? Quite possibly”

SUNDAY TIMES

“Full of authentic detail, seedy locations and a high corpse count, it keeps you hooked until the very last page”

SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

“Brilliantly clever, gripping and action-packed. Utterly original and bound to become a big-budget movie.”

SUNDAY MIRROR

“Fast, hard and knowing: this is an amazing debut full of intrigue, tradecraft and suspense. Read it immediately!”

CHRISTOPHER REICH

“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”
