Product description

Product Description

Chase should be dead. The package he carried was supposed to blow up and take out the guy he handed it to. He was just the courier, the delivery mechanism for a hit. Collateral damage.

But he's not.

When his package starts ringing, he finds a loaded gun, a phone, and the defused remains of the bomb inside. The stranger on the other end of the line tells him that she's saved his life.

And that he now has the chance for revenge and the tools to take it, if he wants. For all he still has, and all he'd leave behind.


"Fast paced, well structured plot and excellently written, 'All You Leave Behind' is a great novella which proves difficult to not want to read in one sitting." - Luca Veste

"This is an impressively sleek novella, written in stripped down prose with not a word out of place. The characters are well drawn, the plotting pacy, and [Rickards] creates such a pervasive atmosphere that you can almost taste the smell of dead junky." - Eva Dolan

"All You Leave Behind reminds me of the feel of good cyberpunk, particularly in the almost mythic aspects of Chase's protector, and the way that's expressed around the city by rumour, whispers, mysterious paintings. Add in a breakneck pace and it's an interesting mix and a very good read." - Iain Rowan

4.0 out of 5 stars Stylish and action driven 28 June 2016

Barely found this on GR, on Amazon it's listed under John Rickards (Cregan's pseudonym), although confusion seems unnecessary. Anyway, it was also free on Amazon and I had an hour to pass, so sure, why not. The main thing is that for a random kindle freebie, it was actually quite good. The writing consistently solid, well edited, dynamic story. Action driven neo noir crime style tough guy narratives aren't usually my thing, but Cregan/Rickards did well with it, creating a thoroughly entertaining story of a special delivery messenger in a crime ridden near dystopian world of projects known as Levels and a woman who watches out for his kind. Apparently, this is part of a series of novels and as such serves as a good introduction, especially if this is your bag. Had this been a film, it would have been a stylish action number in black and white or done with a specially color muted theme. Fun way to spend an hour. Definitely.
4.0 out of 5 stars A runner on the run 27 November 2011

An enjoyable novella, using the same setting as the author's novels THE LEVELS and THE RAZOR GATE. Chase has to find out who was supposed to take delivery and why, while the sender tries to find out what happened to the package, leading to a cat-and-mouse chase and a bang-up ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tight, Fun Story 5 June 2011
By Dotcomaphobe - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Highly enjoyable! The story takes place in a neighborhood/slum/warzone called The Levels, which is almost a character in itself and makes an excellent set piece. Having not yet read the novel by the same name, I found this very easy to get into.

What I really enjoyed about it, though, is the writing. The author's previous novels (the Alex Rourke stories, penned under a different name) were good, yes. The plot was fast-paced and the third act was always thrilling (and fun) in each of those novels, but reading this latest work shows just how far the author has come in writing both dialogue and action. For starters, I believe Cregan is English; it must be difficult to conceive of American conversational tones, and Cregan does an admirable job. The action sequences were tight and sharp, avoiding that trap of over-analyzing every angle-of-fire blast and feint-parry-thrust. I didn't have to wade through the character's plan of "how the fight would go down" and then have to watch it as well. The action was really more reaction; I saw instinct instead of rote script.

Overall, a very enjoyable read. The afterword was great as well; I was really interested in hearing his take on why he chose the same set piece for this one.

Oh, and it comes with the first three chapters of Murder Park, the next Cregan novel (slated for release in January 2012, if I'm not mistaken).
