Review:

"Raven's unique vision of our times - classes battling, corruption raging, ideas flashing - is not only valid but valuable. He spins webs of chance, intrigue and wit to ensnare civilised values and trap the truth. It's high time we gave this very curious genius a loud, warm welcome." (David Hughes Mail on Sunday)

"A ready made cult waiting to be discovered" ( Spectator)

"Cracking entertainment... Dangerously, deliciously addictive" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Raven's gusto, the robustness of his style and his powerful, if quirky, intelligence all held me rapt" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"Sparkling and fizzing... Raven has the mind of a cad and the pen of an angel" ( Guardian)

Book Description:

A dazzling sequence of novels about the English misbehaving at home and abroad
