Reviews

`Great crime fiction hinges on a sense of place, and after returning to London after ten years living in the world in which he has set his sophisticated debut, Thomas proves an adroit guide to a city that has developed at dizzying speed.'

* GQ Magazine *

`Paradise City is a gripping read. This fast-paced and darkly atmospheric novel introduces Joe Thomas as a new and distinct voice in crime fiction of the city.'

-- Susanna Jones, author of The Earthquake Bird

`Paradise City is an exciting, dark and trenchant thriller, exposing the dark underbelly of Sao Paulo where money, politics and murder meet. Fresh, gripping and incredibly assured, Joe Thomas will be a name to watch in crime fiction.'

-- Stav Sherez, author of The Intrusions

`With its feverish energy, opulent nightlife, culture and chaos, the Brazilian megalopolis is a perfect setting for Joe Thomas's crime thrillers.'

* The Guardian *

`A tough, uncompromising style.'

-- Jon Wise

`As vibrant, colourful and complex as South America's largest city.'

* Irish Independent *

`The weighty social issues of the book are more than balanced with the superb characterisation... [Gringa is] a great read for those who like their crime on the darker side of the tracks, and dare I say it, even better than the debut [Paradise City]. Highly recommended.'

* Raven Crime Reads *
