Editorial Reviews

Review

"This was one of the best books I've read in a longtime. It is smart, gripping and even weaves an intriguing mystery into the mix.I cannot praise it highly enough. A masterpiece." - D.M. Cain, author of The Phoenix Project and A Chronicle of Chaos
 
"This reviewer seems to recall something that was saidof Dostoevsky and how, to be successful, a novel requires an overarchingphilosophy. It is especially in this respect that Greensides's work meritsultimate recognition." - TheLiterary Reader
 
"Every once in a while, I finish a book, don't do anything fora while except sit and think about it. This is one of those... It's rough andviolent, but compassionate towards every character. This is one I'm definitelygoing to thrust upon my friends and family." - Sunshine Somerville, author of The Kota series
 
"A powerful sense of place and a sharp, nostalgic feelpervade the novel, and the supporting characters are richly drawn...anengaging, exciting and thought-provoking read that I'd strongly recommend."- Nathan Jones
 
"There are twists and turns, light and shade in everypage and in summation the book was a joy to read... It is without doubt askilled debut from Jason Greensides." - Boopy

About the Author

Jason Greensides has a degree in Video Production and Film Studies, and has made several short films, one of which was a competition winner, and another two broadcast on television; but writing fiction is his real passion. He is interested in 'outsider' types, people operating on the fringes of society, a theme he fully developed in his debut novel, The Distant Sound of Violence. He is currently working on his second novel, another coming-of-age mystery. He lives in London. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
