'Hypnotic, feverish and altogether wonderful' (Guardian) - Jake Arnott's acclaimed successor to the bestselling LONG FIRM trilogy

About the Author

Jake Arnott was born in 1961, and lives in London. He worked as a labourer, a mortuary technician, a theatrical agent's assistant, an artist's life model and a sign language interpreter before his debut novel, THE LONG FIRM, was published by Sceptre in 1999 to huge public and critical acclaim. HE KILLS COPPERS and TRUECRIME followed to equal acclaim in 2001 and 2003, and in 2004 THE LONG FIRM was made into a widely-praised television series by the BBC.


'Rich in the forensic detail that's made Arnott the pop-culture laureate he is!breathless and compelling' -- Martin Horsfield, Time Out 'Fascinating, compelling, pulpy -- all you'd expect from a writer who just keeps getting better.' -- Arena 'Bristling with contained energy and generating a white-hot unease. Best of all, the novel rescues the 1970s from the simple-minded dismissal of the entire decade as a kitsch-only zone!as Arnott argues with urgent, spellbinding power, it was a decade aflame rather than just flaming' ' -- Patrick Ness, Guardian 'Beautifully observed and brilliantly paced!a fascinating portrait of impotence and amorality by a writer unafraid to take risks' -- Michael Arditti, Independent 'Once again he has skewered an age to the page!funny, sexy, touching, too, but it is the undertow of dread beneath the antics that makes it a serious achievement' -- Mark Sanderson, Evening Standard 'Undoubtedly Arnott's best invention to date.' -- Henry Sutton, Daily Mirror 'Compelling' -- Peter Burton, Daily Express
