Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As the twentieth century breathes its very last, with Britpop at its zenith, twenty-seven-year-old A&R man Steven Stelfox is slashing and burning his way through London's music industry. Blithely crisscrossing the globe in search of the next megahit — fueled by greed and inhuman quantities of cocaine — Stelfox freely indulges in an unending orgy of self-gratification. But the industry is changing fast and the hits are drying up, and the only way he's going to salvage his sagging career is by taking the idea of "cutthroat" to murderous new levels.

Review:

"Kill Your Friends is the most exciting British novel since Trainspotting." Word Magazine

Review:

"Niven, who spent 10 years working in the music industry, uses his insider knowledge and a racist, misogynistic lead character to produce a very dark, viciously funny novel." Booklist

Review:

"Like the product of an unholy union between Bret Easton Ellis and Martin Amis...the reader is alternately shocked and left crying with laughter." Bookseller (London)
