Product description


Praise for Wakling's debut novel, The Immortal Part:

'One of the year's key debuts. Subtle and intense, it sucks you in like a dream and holds you
like a nightmare.' Lee Child

'An accomplished and page-turning thriller.' The Guardian

Praise for The Devil's Mask:
'The Devil's Mask is that rare thing: a book that is not only page-turning
but also beautifully crafted.' Jane Harris

'A fascinating, morally complex tale of greed and murder.' Sunday Times, Books of the Year

, Guardian

A ferociously smart, high-octane thriller about a rogue banker who plays Robin Hood and then runs for his life. Joseph Ashcroft is mad as hell and not going to take it any more and Escape and Evasion reads like a Network for the Bitcoin era. A big-hearted book about the rage for revenge, the bonds of friendship and the eternal pull of home., Tony Parsons

A brilliant, gripping and important take on masculinity and responsibility, ingeniously plotted and beautifully written. I couldn't put it down, totally sucked into Joseph's downward spiral., Erin Kelly

Christopher Wakling has done it again. Escape and Evasion is both page-turning and heart-warming, with touches of comedy, a characterful narrative voice and a brilliant final twist., Jane Harris

The story of a bank heist, a break-up and a break-down, it's funny, tense, moving and wise - like a cross between Falling Down and Rogue Male, but much better than both., Tobias Jones

Loved the framing urgency, and the kindness, and the sad sweet theme of running away but circling home. A thriller but also a thoughtful book about masculinity., James McConnachie

Compelling, disturbing, profoundly moving. The real sense of jeopardy is that dangerous character we can never escape from: the self., Jake Arnott

Compelling from the start - a thrilling story about a disappearance and a deeper one about courage and morality, fear and love., Jane Shemlit

I was expecting a pure thriller, but this was something else. . . Not only a great read but a fascinating exploration of different manifestations of masculinity, racked with tension and sprinkled with humour., Ros Barber

'It's incredibly well written; funny and poignant, deals with some dark issues and races along at a pace that can be quite breathtaking at times. . . There's humour, and sadness and tension that absolutely grips the reader throughout.', RandomThingsThroughMyLetterbox
