'Layer Cake is a storming piece of work... the novel has a grasp of street argot unparalleled since Kinky Friedman first sashayed out of his from door and nailed a checker straight out of the bat' --D. J. Taylor
'Connolly's style is fast and funny and just frightening enough to make you sit up all night finishing the book.' --Independent on Sunday
'One novel in and Connolly has hit the jackpot, jump-started British crime fiction into the present... Like good drug fiction you're given glamour and squalor, a voyeuristic thrill, and the bill.' --Uncut
