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.
