The first reviews of 'The Drop' are in and thankfully they are great, better than I could have hoped for. I'm delighted and also relieved because I think my confidence might have been a tad dented if they'd all said the book was crap!
Crime Time Magazine called 'The Drop': "A classic British gangster novel that evokes and matches some of the best writing in the genre"
Renowned Crime Writer, Nick Quantrill said: "Linskey is sure to be at the forefront of Northern crime writing in 2011."
And finally best seller Simon Kernick called 'The Drop': "A brutal hard-hitting debut", which is a quote that now proudly adorns the book jacket.
