Pacey, gripping, absorbing, enthralling and all the other superlatives you can throw its way, Chris Brookmyre's Want You Gone is an absolute treat from beginning to end.
Want You Gone is vintage Brookmyre - equal parts adrenaline and empathy, a plot that opens out like a Japanese flower dropped in hot water, and characters so real you want to reach through the page and save them.
A sharp and funny writer
Pure literary dynamite
A thriller combining its author's storytelling verve with a bravura display of technical know-how. (Thriller of the Month)

One of the most ingenious thrillers I've read in a long time.
