Product description

Review

Bags of new tricks and angles and the pace is hectic. Can't wait to see the movie! -- Clive Fairweather - ex SAS Deputy and Former HM Inspector of Prisons

From boutique owner to fiction writer. Barry Laden has written a gritty page-turner. -- Tim Teeman, The Times, June 2004

From the Publisher

This is a fast-paced novel by an exciting writer with a wealth of ideas. We think that readers will love it and we are pleased to say that approaches have already been made to make a film or TV mini series from Klarkey's War.

Format: Paperback
Barry Laden has crammed so many ideas into this book that it blew my mind.
I got hold of an early issued copy and I really couldn't put it down. Klarkey reminds me of Patricia Highsmith's Tom Ripley - he's bad but you want to like him. With Klarkey, you can almost reason why he does certain things. It was disturbing but gripping at the same time. I also really liked his use of real places combined with fictional events. You just don't know what to believe! Very enthralling with lots of layers and unexpected twists and turns - I'm glad the author is writing a sequel. I recommend this totally.

I was drawn to this book by the cover and what's inside is even better. Its style is Dan Brown meets Patricia Highsmith and I can really see Johnny Depp playing Klarkey if there's a film version. Gripping stuff!

There was something about this book that meant I just couldn't put it down. The Klarkey of the title is one of those unpredictablely dubious blokes whose next move can never be predicted. As the previous reviewer mentioned, there are elements of the Tom Ripley about him, but more like Tom Ripley crossed with Grant Mitchell! I read it on a long flight and it kept me entertained/on the edge of my seat for the duration. It's far more gripping than The Da Vinci Code and, while it is essentially a thriller, the writing has a wit and lightness of touch that clunky Dan Brown could only dream about.
