    I?m a fan of this author after the quirky mind blowing Nyquist novels, this time he enters the world of more grounded mystery but still that noir feel and off kilter sense remains. I loved this. The setting is evocative, in the time of the Brixton riots, when the police were objects...

    After a long period under the radar, Jeff Noon's last two books were a sort of slipstream noir; alas, I was sufficiently underwhelmed by the first not to even attempt the second. This time out he's written a straight crime book, which could easily have been even further from the things...

    One of the finest crime novels I've read in a long time. Set just after the Brixton riots, Detective Inspector Hobbes has been sent to a new police station in London (there has been controvesy at his previous station). The brutal murder of a musician tests him and the men and women who...

    One of the best mysteries I've read in a while, from the right side of the atlantic. Noon absolutely nails the whole group of superfans who obsess over every little detail of a bands songs. I was on the edge of my seat all the way through. I'm very much hoping for another book with the...

    As a long time fan of Jeff Noon, I feel this is probably his most polished bit of work and his most 'straight' - though with a band of outsiders and music influence there are still well loved themes within. Its a really well written, well paced crime/police story that paints this perio...

    I think maybe I need a new shelf for 'disappointing crime novels' as I seem to have read so many recently. Given Noon's admirable track reckon in science fiction, I had high hopes for this but alas they were not to be fulfilled. Despite it's 400 or so pages it all just seems very sketc...

    Enjoyable police procedural with a quirky glam rock element. Started brilliantly but became a bit baggy with the convoluted teen misfits storyline. ...

    After a long period under the radar, Jeff Noon's last two books were a sort of slipstream noir; alas, I was sufficiently underwhelmed by the first not to even attempt the second. This time out he's written a straight crime book, which could easily have been even further from the things...

    One of the finest crime novels I've read in a long time. Set just after the Brixton riots, Detective Inspector Hobbes has been sent to a new police station in London (there has been controvesy at his previous station). The brutal murder of a musician tests him and the men and women who...

    One of the best mysteries I've read in a while, from the right side of the atlantic. Noon absolutely nails the whole group of superfans who obsess over every little detail of a bands songs. I was on the edge of my seat all the way through. I'm very much hoping for another book with the...

    As a long time fan of Jeff Noon, I feel this is probably his most polished bit of work and his most 'straight' - though with a band of outsiders and music influence there are still well loved themes within. Its a really well written, well paced crime/police story that paints this perio...

    I think maybe I need a new shelf for 'disappointing crime novels' as I seem to have read so many recently. Given Noon's admirable track reckon in science fiction, I had high hopes for this but alas they were not to be fulfilled. Despite it's 400 or so pages it all just seems very sketc...

    Enjoyable police procedural with a quirky glam rock element. Started brilliantly but became a bit baggy with the convoluted teen misfits storyline. ...

    Not a huge fan of crime fiction, but Jeff Noon has the magic touch. ...

    I?m a fan of this author after the quirky mind blowing Nyquist novels, this time he enters the world of more grounded mystery but still that noir feel and off kilter sense remains. I loved this. The setting is evocative, in the time of the Brixton riots, when the police were objects...
