Review:

Guthrie's prose is a series of short, sharp shocks, reeking of the visceral brutality of the toughest contemporary noir...those who enjoy the darker side of the genre are in for some serious thrills with this, his fifth novel. --Guardian

A book as inventive and groundbreaking as it is magnificently written…'Slammer' is the most relentlessly page-turning novel this reviewer has come across in a long, long time…a superb novel that will leave you thinking hard about life for a long time afterwards, and there's not much higher praise than that --The Scotsman

A witty and inventive stylist --Washington Post
