Hodder & Stoughton
From the prizewinning author of BOXER, BEETLE and the Booker-longlisted THE TELEPORTATION ACCIDENT comes Ned Beauman's third and most thrilling novel to date.
With GLOW, Ned Beauman has reinvented the international conspiracy thriller for a new generation.
A hostage exchange outside a police station in Pakistan.
A botched defection in an airport hotel in New Jersey.
A test of loyalty at an abandoned resort in the Burmese jungle.
A boy and a girl locking eyes at a rave in a South London laundrette . . .
For the first time, Britain's most exciting young novelist turns his attention to the present day, as a conspiracy with global repercussions converges on one small flat above a dentist's office in Camberwell.
Beauman's writing is dazzlingly inventive. - The Times
A singular and almost recklessly gifted, young writer. - Time
Seriously intelligent and seriously funny at the same time. - Daily Telegraph
Undoubtedly a writer of prodigious talent - Financial Times
Unhinged, over-whelming and brilliant ... Beauman has taste: his antennae are acutely tuned to the stylish and resonant. - Independent
A thoroughly enjoyable, playful read . . . The narrative hooks immediately, as does the language, which is often delightfully inventive. There are also surprisingly tender scenes that add depth and humour.
. . . Beauman has created a truly modern thriller that is as addictive as it is inventive. - The List
Beauman writes with panache. - Daily Mail
Sexy and urgent - Literary Review
