    1. I really enjoyed this book. It's got everything. Sex, drugs, bad language, violence. Okay, it's not for everyone but if you've watched the likes of Dexter or Hannibal on TV, or seen the Saw or Hostel movies and you're not emotionally scarred from those then this book won't push you over the edge. Robbie doesn't like rude, ill-mannered people. They make him reeeally angry, and you wouldn't like Robbie when he's angry. Essentially this is a lightweight crime thriller with a Jekyll and Hyde-esque m [...]

    2. An excellent debut. I have read a ton of serial killer novels, but this one seemed fresh to me considering the genre is entirely saturated with crap. I will definitely be picking up the next book in the series. I would recommend to anyone saddestho loves a super violent, nothing is sacred, killer novel.

    3. As someone who is usually disappointed with the lack of thrill in so-called thrillers, this book is a breath of terrifying air. Hooked from the beginning, written ingeniously and with descriptions to make you squirm, this book is not for those after a little read with a cuppa on a sunny afternoon. This is for those who want to be immersed in the world, of which you can't help but relate to, of an insane, psychopathic murderer. Once you start reading be warned, you will not be able to stop. Our c [...]

    4. Fortunately 'Robbie' the central character is not the only one we get to hear from, because he is pretty unpleasant, even when he's supposed to be the 'nice' one. Chauvinistic and self obsessed, I don't think he is, (like the author says)'like you and me', but then I'm female, and he seems to be a male wish-fulfillment fantasy, living the City high life of self indulgence, money and sex. Luckily we also get to hear from some of the victims, which redeems the narrative, they are not just murdered [...]

    5. A thoroughly enjoyable blood soaked romp through 90`s culture.Only coming up for air this debut author captures the hedonistic feel of the times perfectly, weaving our lead characters enviable party lifestyle in with his not so savoury indulgencellingrcilessly.Salacious party nights, under-powered Peugot diesels and Monday mornings getting skin out from under his finger nails are all par for the course in the life of Mr Manners.I particularly enjoyed the manner of the killings or "disposals" (as [...]

    6. Mind your P's and Q'sDo the lack of manners in today's society have you day dreaming of ways to clean up the gene pool? Take a cerebral trip to the dark side and enjoy as those fantasies come to life on the pages of this delightfully twisted novel. If you're one those who suffer from a manners deficiency this book may just make you think twice. This is a five star book from start to finish!

    7. This book is a breathtaking read. I really liked how the author takes the reader on a journey into the minds of his characters. While some parts of this book are predictable, the author manages to keep you hooked from one chapter to the next. For even if you know a certain event is coming, it is impossible to predict the details of how something will happen. A book I will definitely recommend to my friends.

    8. A brilliant debut book from writer Paul David Chambers that leaves you wanting to get stuck straight into the next part of the trilogy. Robbie is an exquisite character who will keep you glued to the pages of this gruesome tale. Highly recommended to lovers of horror or crime novels. I wait with baited breath for the next installment.

    9. The book is good read and leaves you attached till the very end. It has everything you could ask for from a thriller novel, suspense, gore, challenges. It does have occasional surprises that make it much better than you would expect it to be. I couldn't set the book down once without wondering what happens next.

    10. A scary look at a side of London that I would not like to experience first hand.Gritty, and articulate you will find everything you would expect from this clever and dark book.A great début, I shall be keeping an eye out for Paul's further works.

    11. This was a very good crime thriller set in one of my favorite places, London, and a quick read. I finished it in a day. Recommended.

    12. Great read!I liked the way the author turned the villain into an a sort of hero. Someone we all can relate to. I eagerly await part two and three.
