THE EXTINCTION CLUB is history, mystery, confession, hymn to a long-lost masculinity and adventure story - like Dava Sobel's Longitude with a black belt. As you would expect from the shining genius of the author of ANGRY WHITE PYJAMAS, the pages fly by like the kicks and punches of a Jet Li combination. Robert Twigger is a unique and dazzling talent - a nineteenth-century adventurer trapped in the body of a twenty-first century writer. I urge you to read everything that carries his name' - Tony Parsons
