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
