A story of rare, compelling brilliance, with a concept so high you'll need oxygen to finish it...This is a one-sitting, extravagant, mind-blowing reading pleasure with a stable of characters who come across as all flesh, bone and folly. You will never look at men hired to kill other humans the same way. You won't merely read this book, you will inhale it. -- David Baldacci A ripping, twisting yarn you can read in one sitting -- Simon Kernick, author of The Final Minute
Lean, brutal and riveting, THE KILLING KIND is the kind of novel you can't put down but also want to savour. With sharply etched characters, knifelike twists and hardboiled energy to burn, it's an utter winner, beginning to end.
-- Megan Abbott, bestselling author of THE END OF EVERYTHING Roaring tough-guy fun * The Sunday Times * Pure joy...so fast-moving, so expertly arranged, every piece fitting together with a well-oiled snap, that it feels weaponized. Read it. Or else. -- Benjamin Percy * New York Times Book Review *
