The long-awaited sequel to KILL YOUR FRIENDS

A Guardian Book of the Year 2018
It is 2017 – the time of Trump, Brexit and fake news. And time for the return of Steven Stelfox, former A&R man who made his millions from a hit reality TV show.

Now Stelfox works occasionally as a music industry ‘consultant’. A fixer. He’s had a call from his old friend James Trellick, president of one of the largest record companies in America. Trellick has a huge problem on his hands in the shape of...

Lucius Du Pre. Once the biggest pop star on earth. Now he’s a helpless junkie, a prolific sexual predator, and massively in debt to Trellick’s record company. And the picture only gets bleaker when the parents of one of Du Pre’s ‘special friends’ begin blackmailing him.

Enter Stelfox stage right. He’s the perfect man to find a way out of this nightmare, and to make a killing in the process. There’s no line he won’t cross.

‘A banging action satirical thriller. But it’s also a proper novel about the Trumpian era, of the reality TV era, the fake news era. It’s managed to say a lot of things in a way that very few other novels are doing and in a very comedic way’ IRVINE WELSH

'A bruising triumph; Amis' MONEY for the Trump generation. What a monster he's created' IAN RANKIN

‘John Niven understands our era better than almost anyone’ DOUGLAS COUPLAND

‘A scabrously entertaining satire of what it is like to be rich and white in the land of the free if you are utterly depraved, “where money doesn’t just talk, or swear, it nukes”. … There is a twisted poetry in Niven’s mastery of invective’ THE TIMES

‘Savagely, viciously witty, this frantic hymn to greed is filthy, frenetic and totally fabulous’ SUNDAY MIRROR
‘A full-throttle send up of toxic masculinity … Niven at full tilt is always something to behold.’METRO

Praise for Kill ’Em All

“A banging action satirical thriller. But it’s also a proper novel about the Trumpian era, of the reality TV era, the fake news era. It’s managed to say a lot of things in a way that very few other novels are doing and in a very comedic way.”

Irvine Welsh

“John Niven understands our era better than almost anyone.”

Douglas Coupland

“The off-colour banter, hellbent on causing offence to all and sundry, masks an unimpeachable commitment to social justice … [A] full-throttle send up of toxic masculinity … Niven at full tilt is always something to behold.”

Metro

“‘A bruising triumph; Amis’ Money for the Trump generation. What a monster he’s created.’”

Ian Rankin

“‘Savagely, viciously witty, this frantic hymn to greed is filthy, frenetic and totally fabulous.’”

Sunday Mirror

“‘Brace yourself for another expletive-strewn adventure … Niven pulls no punches … Ingeniously plotted ... A scabrously entertaining satire of what it is like to be rich and white in the land of the free ... There is a twisted poetry in Niven’s mastery of invective … The payoff is absolutely priceless.’”

The Times

“‘Niven is still able to deliver his foul-mouthed, inventive zingers with gusto, and Stelfox is a fittingly amoral hero for the age of Trump.’”

Mail on Sunday

“A brilliant depiction of the mind of a sociopath. Be warned: this is edgy.”

Evening Standard
