Product description


Black and filmic - The Times

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

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

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 worthy of le Carre or Fleming, Wignall turns an implausible plot into something very credible - Bristol Evening Post

Wignall's spare dispassionate prose pulls you in as he details 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

About the Author
