Millions of lives depend on the answer, as a twisting road of betrayal and revenge leads from the mountains of Afghanistan to the heart of London . . . and a ticking bomb.
Cruel, violent and lyrical, it's Iain Banks meeting Alan Warner in Tom Clancy's missile silo. Excellent. * Select on DAMAGED * Good background, with an on-the-nail summary of Northern Ireland wheeling and dealing...and a wild Celtic streak that marks Conway as one to watch. * The Guardian on DAMAGED * Imagine John le Carre on bad acid - edgy, twisted and very, very dark. * Howard Marks on DAMAGED * Debut of a roaring and prodigal talent ... Not so much a novel as a life experience. Don't miss it. * Literary Review on DAMAGED * Conway writes with brutal immediacy, his mordant irony resonating uncomfortably even as it entertains...Grim, kinetic thriller set against an unconventional and inspired backdrop * Kirkus Reviews on RAGE * In a word: Great * The Herald Sun on RAGE * 'A dizzying journey starring international terrorists, Uday Hussein, freelance salvage merchants and a container full of suffocated Kuwaiti businessmen. Simon Conway's writing is authoritative and authentic. RAGE is a thriller that manages to balance adrenalin with intelligence.' * Scotland on Sunday on RAGE *
