The Kills by Richard House

Picador – Fiction – £9.99 PB

At 1000 pages this is a big but brilliant literary political thriller; perfect for those who like their reading with a generous dose of gritty conspiracy. The story begins in Camp Liberty, an unmanned staging-post and burn-pit site in Amrah province, Iraq and emanates out across continents, characters and sub-plots. Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize and shortlisted forthe South Bank Sky Arts Award, The Kills is gloriously addictive and incredibly well written.
