REVIEWS FOR HANNA JAMESON'S LONDON TRILOGY:

'Jameson's taut and spare narrative complements a gripping plot with unmistakable undertones of the legends of this genre, Chandler, Ellroy, Rankin' Red.

'Jameson writes like an angel on speed. Ellroy and sometimes Rankin walk you to the dark side brilliantly. Something You Are is no less gripping, shocking and relentless' Q Magazine.

'Jameson writes in turbo-charged shorthand, her fierce, sparse prose sparking off the page. She's able to evoke a whole scene with a single detail, and she's got a gift for getting under the skin of her characters' The Book Bag.

'Caustic and energetic... Echoes of James Ellroy... Those Crazy Freeways is a literary road movie smelling of hot American tarmac and cheap motels' Guardian.

Hanna Jameson published Something You Are when she was just 21. It was shortlisted for the John Creasy CWA Dagger. Since then, she has lived in Australia, travelled Europe, Japan and the USA, and written three further novels, the latest of which, The Last, was a number one Sunday Times bestseller.

MARKET: James Ellroy; Dennis Lehane; Oyinkan Braithwaite.


This is no cosy home counties mystery; the author serves up caustic and energetic fare, with echoes of James Ellroy, in what is essentially a literary road movie smelling of hot American tarmac and cheap motels... A fast-moving narrative' Guardian

'A seriously brilliant urban noir thriller that has you gripped from beginning to end, and Hanna Jameson is a thriller writer who the world will soon know more about' Nudge Book

A brilliant, brash effort... the deepest, darkest noir' newbooks, 5 stars
