The twenty-fifth anniversary edition of a modern classic: ‘ingenious, daring and brilliant’ – Guardian

COMPLICITY
n. 1. the fact of being an accomplice, esp. in a criminal act

A few spliffs, a spot of mild S&M, phone through the copy for tomorrow’s front page, catch up with the latest from your mystery source – could be big, could be very big – in fact, just a regular day at the office for free-wheeling, substance-abusing Cameron Colley, a fully paid-up Gonzo hack on an Edinburgh newspaper.

The source is pretty thin, but Cameron senses a scoop and checks out a series of bizarre deaths from a few years ago – only to find that the police are checking out a series of bizarre deaths that are happening right now. And Cameron just might know more about it than he’d care to admit …

Involvement; connection; liability – Complicity is a stunting exploration of the morality of greed, corruption and violence, venturing fearlessly into the darker recesses of human purpose.

Reviews

The most imaginative novelist of his generation
The Times
A remarkable novel . . . superbly crafted, funny and intelligent
Financial Times
Fast moving . . . tightly plotted
Sunday Times
A stylishly executed and well produced study in fear, loathing and victimisation which moves towards doom in measured steps
Observer
Literate, passionate and well-paced, Complicity succeeds as both an absorbing entertainment and a chilling examination of accountability in a morally bankrupt world
San Francisco Chronicle
From the brilliant opening . . . that lands the reader smack in the middle of the first of a series of cold-blooded murders to the final confrontation on a weather-beaten wild island . . . Complicity is irresistibly compelling
New York Times Book Review
Compelling and sinister . . . a very good thriller
