Product description

Review

"Kevin Sampson’s astringent novels takes us to mean streets of Liverpool; his language has all the demented idiosyncrasy of Elmore Leonard, with the interlacing of cut-throat humour barely undercutting the omnipresent menace. Things have changed since Raymond Chandler's day -- now British crime writers are quite as tough as the Yanks." (Barry Forshaw Independent)

"This is tough and uncompromising stuff which may not be one for the faint hearted, but if you like your crime fiction with killer twists and shout aloud reveals, then The Killing Pool is just the book for you. DeathBecomesHer chose this without hesitation as her crime novel of the year 2013." (CrimeFictionLover)

"Atmospheric thriller… Sampson is adept at keeping [the character’s] voices distinct throughout a pacy novel, with its complicated plot that is tense from beginning to end." (Liverpool Post)

"The final few paragraphs are as magnificent as they are unexpected. You will put this book down with a sense of dizzy wonder" (Sachin Nakrani)

"A ferociously compelling slice of Scouse Noir." (James Walton Reader's Digest)

Book Description

Detective Chief Inspector Billy McCartney must face his nemesis in this new crime thriller from Kevin Sampson.
