Reviews

"Propulsive ... If The Murder Bag marks the launch of a new crime series, count me in." * The Times * "A tense debut crime novel with a dose of dry wit" * Daily Express * "Impressive, page-turning ... Told with conviction and at an ever increasing pace" * Daily Mail * "Truly emotive crime-writing is a rarity, and The Murder Bag looks set to win Tony Parsons many new fans in the genre" * GQ * "Spectacular! Tense and human, fast and authentic." * Lee Child * "Sometimes, rarely, you know from the first chapter or so of a novel that you're in the hands of a master story teller. In the case of Tony Parsons's brilliant new thriller, The Murder Bag, we know this within the first few pages. A relentless plot, evocative prose and compelling (and wrenching) portraits of the characters, good and evil, conspire to make this a must-read. And I have two words for hero Max Wolfe: More. Soon." * Jeffery Deaver * "Has all the ingredients and more: great plotting, great characters and at least two eye-widening twists I didn't see coming." * Sophie Hannah * "It's a brilliant crime novel, a thrilling procedural. Max Wolfe is a wonderfully endearing character, smart and tough and vulnerable, and with Scout (and Stan too) Tony has created so much warmth and tenderness, in a world, a genre, so often devoid of it. His research is wide, deep, impeccable - from forensics to the psychology, procedure to protocol. And boy does he know how to create suspense, and convincing plot lines, which snake and weave, and surprise right until the very end. This is a complex, shocking, very contemporary story, told with utter conviction and authority. I was hooked from page one. Crime writing has brilliant new star." * Henry Sutton *
