I make things disappear. It's what I do. This time I'm tidying up the loose ends after a casino heist gone bad. The loose ends being a million cash.

But I only have 48 hours, and there's a guy out there who wants my head in a bag.

He'll have to find me first.

They don't call me the Ghostman for nothing...

"Quite astonishing . . . Mature, impeccably researched and written with supreme panache, it moves like a black mamba and is every bit as deadly. Fierce, taut and with an intensity that burns the lungs, I doubt whether there will be a debut thriller to match it this year, or even next" - DAILY MAIL

"Startling and sparkling assurance . . . A star is born? Quite possibly" - SUNDAY TIMES

"Full of authentic detail, seedy locations and a high corpse count, it keeps you hooked until the very last page" - SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

"Brilliantly clever, gripping and action-packed. Utterly original and bound to become a big-budget movie." - SUNDAY MIRROR

"Impressive . . . It's one to buckle yourself in for because the ride is fast, thrilling and constantly veering all over the road with a very exciting new talent at the wheel" - Simon Toyne, author of SANCTUS and THE KEY

"Hip and stylish . . . a winning blend of tough action and authentic detail, and an enigma of a lead character that you'll want to meet again. An outstanding debut" - CHRIS EWAN, author of SAFE HOUSE

"An astonishing debut . . . Hobbs is up there with the best . . . a masterpiece " - Guardian
