Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Winner of Theakston Crimewriter of the Year 2007 and Spinetinglers Award 2008.

Rough, tough language and casual violence that escalates beyond the control of its hardened characters in a tale of revenge and spectacular mounting misunderstandings. It is not for the faint-hearted.

Comparison: Irvine Welsh, Niall Griffiths, Simon Kernick.

If you like Allan Guthrie you might also like to read books by Peter Spiegelman, Ben Cheetham and Malcolm Mackay.

Synopsis

Savage Night by Allan Guthrie

How much blood would you spill to avenge those you love? What if you’re a blithe haemophobic psychopathic ex-con from Edinburgh? Andy Park thinks he’s discovered a way to make a care worker pay for his ill-treatment of Park’s brain-damaged wife, Liz. But Park isn’t prepared for the fall-out. Because in Park’s world, when things go wrong, they go spectacularly wrong. Before long, Park’s teenage son is in mortal danger, his daughter and her fiancé are cutting up corpses, and Old Mrs Yardie’s country cottage has been requisitioned for the purposes of kidnapping an erstwhile tobacco smuggler.

And yet Park’s world is a bed of roses in comparison to Tommy Savage’s. Savage is being blackmailed by a masked man known only as Mr Smith – for what, he has no idea. A near-fatal accident in an abandoned apartment results in Tommy and his brother, Phil, heading to a graveyard with only a couple of swords and a bag of cash for company.

Will they survive the night? Will anyone?

"A masterful exercise in pulp storytelling." - The List

About the Author

Allan Guthrie

Allan Guthrie was born in Orkney and now lives in Edinburgh with his wife, Donna. He has published several short stories in a variety of magazines and anthologies. Allan is webmaster/editor of Noir Originals, commissioning editor for both Pulp Originals and PointBlank Press, and a literary agent.

Maxim Jakubowski's view on Allan Guthrie...

If Guthrie had an American equivalent, it would be the incomparable James Ellroy. His world is dark, action-filled, rough and ready and his new novel SLAMMER is another walk on the wild side, as a young prison officer takes flak from all quarters and is obliged to assist a group of cons in a job that can only lead to more trouble. You can almost visualise the movie already.
