Glow by Ned Beauman
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Named by Granta as one of the 20 best novelists of his generation, this is Beauman’s third novel and something of a departure for him. A complex, sophisticated, modern thriller mostly set on the streets of London but truly international in its scope. Big business is mixed with politics, drugs and some very important foxes as our very ordinary hero finds himself in the middle of a very serious mystery.

If you like Ned Beauman you might also like to read books by Emily Bullock, Martin Amis and Lavie Tidhar.
