Product description


Exports the wit and suspense of a cleverly constructed crime novel into an exotic realm of fantasy and the result is engagingly entertaining. A remarkably stylish debut. (Lisa Tuttle THE TIMES)

Like an episode of the BBC's 'Hustle' on speed, The Lies of Locke Lamora layers a series of daring scams, one on top of the other, in a complex and highly entertaining mix of magic, manipulation and mayhem. Great stuff. (Sandy Auden SFX)

¿Like Locke Lamora himself, Scott Lynch¿s novel oozes charm, ability, guile, flair, courage, cheek, humour, brevity and bravery in equal measure. It¿s an awesome debut, powerful and dangerous, romantic and relentless and it absolutely lives up to the hype. The Lies of Locke Lamora is a novel you¿ll have to work very hard not to be utterly blown away by.¿ (John Berllyne SF Revu)

A richly developed fantasy novel, with a nice line in earthy dialogue and many instances of grotesque violence. Lies of Locke Lamora is just like it's anti-hero - bold, witty and likely to catch you off guard. (DREAMWATCH)

Excellent fantasy about young grifters known as the Gentleman Bastards, out only for themselves. (ABTA magazine)

Grabs you by the nethers and tears through a ride of intrigue, deceit and daring deeds. In short, a ripping yarn from a major new fantasy-writing talent. (THE LINCOLNSHIRE ECHO)

Lynch is a virtuoso plotter, who plays fair with us and keeps us bemused at every turn. For once deserving every bit of the praise heaped on it. (Roz Kaveney TIME OUT)

"A surprisingly skillful swashbuckling debut signals the next big thing in fantasy writing. The Lies of Locke Lamora stands up to the hype." (EDGE magazine)
