The Next to Die is a remarkably assured debut. It oozes the sour tang of authenticity, mingling psychiatry and crime with the mean streets of London. Kasper has the hallmark of the classic crime fiction protagonist, brutal but with an underlying compassion.
With pitch-perfect tone and quality to the writing, The Next to Die is a great new piece of London noir and a terrific debut.
A superb, heart-thumping thriller that sucks you in with its breathless action, The Next To Die is, without doubt, my favourite read of the year.
