- Customer Reviews:
Black and filmic - The TimesThe 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 MailTerse and spooky, PEOPLE DIE is that most remarkable of things: a killer-thriller with humour and heart - The FaceUnconventional 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 ReviewKevin 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 PostWignall'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

Just didn't do it for me.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 19 August 2013
Bought this because I enjoy novels about hitmen. I've read quite a few over the last few years and so was looking forward to this one. But sorry, it just wasn't that good. I never really felt anything for JJ and the skill of such books as these is that the author makes you empathise with a character who on the surface is difficult to empathise with. But this book didn't succeed in that, at least not with me. I didn't really care what happened to him and found that I was glad when the book was over.
