"If The Doll Princess was a startlingly original reimagining of noir, then Benn has upped his own game. Chamber Music takes all the genre's most potent elements and makes them new and vital again." -- Cathi Unsworth Guardian "It's so good, I almost forgot to breathe." -- Tom Adair Scotsman "Superb...The result is a kind of Guy Ritchie-esque gangster comedy with infinitely more depth." -- Jake Kerridge Daily Telegraph "A startlingly new, ridiculously stylish, home-grown voice" -- Henry Sutton Daily Mirror "One of the most exciting young British novelists working in any genre."

As you adapt to the style that Tom uses, you will begin to recognise a pattern, something almost musical in its form even down to sentence length and construction. It's as if each paragraph has been designed to look as well as sound like a phrase of music. I'm sure he must spend as much time looking at each word as he does working on the plot. Each sentence is like a Haiku and is fabulous for that reason. There's not one phrase to pick out or a spare word you could miss; everything is in its place. That said, this is not as easy read; there's no getting away from it, this is a violent world Bane inhabits and for the reader it is by turn dark and even on occasion comic.
Congratulations on a wonderful book Tom and if anything ever promoted me to read the next one, the final chapter in Chamber Music has done it for me. Oh and I should add that I should not be surprised to see this on a short list for the Booker - just sayin'.

I bought this by mistake. I'd read a rave review and thought it must be something I could relate to. No chance. Read morePublished on 6 Aug. 2014 by Tonman
