Soon he is following the bloody trail from the backstreets and bright lights of the city, to the darkest corners of the internet and all the way to the corridors of power.

The Good Book Guide Review

If you are convinced that nothing new can invigorate the genre – you should pick up The Murder Bag. We’ve met detectives at loggerheads with their daughters (as here) before, from Wallander to Rebus. But there are two things that instantly lift this one out of the rut: parenting is a speciality of the author’s work and it’s treated with a nuance largely absent elsewhere in crime fiction. And Parsons, a quintessential London writer, evokes his city with pungency and élan. Bolshie DC Max Wolfe is investigating a homicide in which a banker’s throat has been cut; a second victim is a homeless heroin addict. The connection: an upscale private school.

Tony Parsons Press Reviews

'Propulsive ... If The Murder Bag marks the launch of a new crime series, count me in.' The Times

 

'A tense debut crime novel with a dose of dry wit' Daily Express

 

'Impressive, page-turning ... Told with conviction and at an ever increasing pace' Daily Mail

 

'Truly emotive crime-writing is a rarity, and The Murder Bag looks set to win Tony Parsons many new fans in the genre' GQ

 

'Spectacular! Tense and human, fast and authentic.' Lee Child

 

'Sometimes, rarely, you know from the first chapter or so of a novel that you're in the hands of a master story teller. In the case of Tony Parsons's brilliant new thriller, The Murder Bag, we know this within the first few pages. A relentless plot, evocative prose and compelling (and wrenching) portraits of the characters, good and evil, conspire to make this a must-read. And I have two words for hero Max Wolfe: More. Soon.' Jeffery Deaver
