Product description


The body count in this tersely controlled thriller is extremely high and rather shocking, even for die-hard thriller readers like me. . . A good, fast read. - Daily Mail

Black and filmic - The Times

Terse and spooky, PEOPLE DIE is that most remarkable of things: a killer-thriller with humour and heart - The Face

Unconventional and remarkable debut novel The writing is fluent and thoughtful; there are no histrionics here. Even so Wignall is good on the mechanics of the hit, the banality of evil thought provoking stuff, well worth your time - Tangled Web Uk Review

But Kevin Wignall has managed to pull off the (almost) perfect anti-hero saga with admirable originality and economy of language People Die nonetheless engages the reader from the beginning and with a gripping twist wirthy of Le Carre or Flemming, Wignall turns an implausible plot into something very credible - Bristol Evening Post

Wignall's spare dispassionate prose - pulls you in as he deatials JJ's machinations to avoid the bullet himself and the casual killing of those in the wrong place at the wrong time - The Big Issue

Book Description

A classy, laid-back, powerful and stunning debut from a new, young British writer.
