Reviews

?A unique crime writer whose fictional world was brutal, realistic and harrowing in the extreme? Maxim Jakubowski, Guardian
One of the few novelists to bring the style of American noir genre to the London streets, Raymond was a unique stylist and a great influence on a later generation of crime writers -- Publishing News ?Raymond, who died in London in 1994, saw life through a glass darkly and wrote it that way? Kirkus ?Transcendental? Independent ?A strange and poetic existential fable? the discomfort caused by reading him is genuine and twofold: the * unremitting bleakness of vision and a faint underlying suspicion that the old con artist is still at work and the reader (and critic) is viewed as one more in a long line of mug punters? Guardian *
