• Back to his violent best… Dark, gruesome and captivating.

    Sam Parker, Esquire
  • It’s a thriller in the mode of Tarantino making war films or westerns; hiding grand themes within genre.

    Alan Bett, Skinny
  • Intense, electrifying… Welsh has delivered a tremendously entertaining book – a whodunit, a thriller, and a probing character study – that’s obsessed with conflict, both physical and mental… A surprisingly poignant, evocative read – highly recommended.

  • In a year when filming begins on Danny Boyle’s sequel of sorts to Trainspotting, it seems perfect timing to revisit its most visceral force.

  • [Begbie’s] intelligence and instinct make him compelling, and Welsh keep the plot roaring along… This is a dark, guilty pleasure and written with – it seems to me – the cinema screen in mind.
