Take four ne'er-do-wells - a 28-year-old ex-public schoolboy who can't bear the idea of settling down: Suzy the Black Widow, who has a deliciously flat stomach and drives like she's breathing through the carbs; Brady the Reservoir Dogs fetishist; and Chico the fat Portuguese waiter. Add some plastic guns, the IRA and a white Merc with fins and you have the plan. What plan? To walk into Michael Winner's private bank and walk out with half a million quid. Fast, clever, stylish, funny and utterly compulsive, this is a first novel with everything.

"Confident and sassy, brilliant" (Time Out)
"A very comic and brilliant book... James Hawes has adapted an enjoyable narrative poise of cynical idealism, both a loving and a loathing of modern Britain... A new novelist of prodigious talent" (Tobias Jones Spectator)
"A White Merc With Fins is determined and surprisingly successful at transporting the aesthetic of Pulp Fiction and the caper plot of Reservoir Dogs to Shepherd's Bush... Fast, sexy, bristling with more neologisms than a Douglas Coupland novel" (GQ)
"Fantastically well done... revitalizes his genre" (Independent on Sunday)
"Brilliant fun" (Q)
'Very funny, very caustic... an antic satire of greed, class warfare and sexual high jinx' - New York Times
