About the Author

Irvine Welsh is the author of eleven previous novels and four books of shorter fiction. He currently lives in Chicago. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

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.Mr Hyde

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. ― Skinny

[
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. -- Kate Muir ― The Times --This text refers to the paperback edition.
