‘The story itself is a can of worms into which the freakish cast is drawn willy nilly, through their different points of contact with a criminal family, a heist, a number of hits, and one or two murders that aren’t hits.
But this book isn’t just about characters and plot.
First and foremost it’s about language, and this is where it really shines.
It’s written like a hard-boiled novel from the fifties, updated for the present day, turbocharged, and powered by rocket-fuel.

The Coming Thing is a bundle of joy and is highly recommended.

While in stormy Toulouse, he encounters a blast from the past that is positively seismic which forces him to return to England and confront his past.
