You never see Kavanagh. All you see is ballsy demand after demand shoved with exquisite vocabulary and baldfaced syntax directly under your nose. From prologue to denouement, The Killing of a Bank Manager will keep you on the edge of your tongue. This is a how-to for those who aspire to murder those who steal. The book doesn't necessarily prove that two wrongs make a right, but rather that two wrongs can be infinitely more interesting. Put the money in the bag. Push the alarm, and you will die laughing. ----Willie Smith, Author of Nothing Doing

At its best, `The Killing of a Bank Manager' conveys the comic - near-farcical - intensity of human desire and the disturbing tenuousness of these emotions. However, it strays too often into repetitious use of stock words and images, and over elaborate lists of thesaurus-mined synonyms and approximations that do little save to distract. Where pith would suffice, Kavanagh - too often, it has to be said - opts for the loquacious garrulousness of the verbose tautologist. Nonetheless, a wonderfully refreshing alternative to the `play it safe', `no nonsense' banality of contemporary realism and bourgeois, character-obsessed `meat-and-two-veg' that usually gets served up.
The Killing of a Bank Manager brings together some rather abstract thoughts.. but still beautiful,pitiable,self indulgent,sickening yet desirable. Henry is a character whom we can all identify with on occasion.
