Product description

Review

‘Superbly realised.’

(Telegraph, Books of the Year)

‘Three more debuts introduced splendid anti-heroes…. The Pictures follows a morally dubious studio fixer in a superbly realised Thirties Hollywood.’

(The Telegraph)

‘The Pictures is a compelling and dazzling debut for fans of Raymond Chandler and James Ellroy. Bolton's tightly paced mystery vividly re-creates 1930s Hollywood and is enriched with complicated, fascinating and flawed characters.’

(Shelf Awareness)

'Star-studded, deliciously dark noir.'

(Express)

'If Bolton manages to combine his natural talent for place with Black's guidance on character, mystery lovers will have a great deal to anticipate.'

(NPR Books)

'An astonishingly accomplished debut.' 

(Daily Mail)

‘A splendid read…handled with great skill…[Bolton] paints a portrait of the period with a confidence usually reserved for old survivors.’

(The Times)

'A solid read for fans of the silver screen and intelligent detective novels.'

(Library Journal)

'Bolton spins a lurid tale of Hollywood after dark, complete with drugs, prostitution, and pornography...nicely mixing Hollywood glamour with backroom sleaze.'

(Booklist)

'A laser-sharp noir thriller.'

(Financial Times)
