No Harm Can Come to a Good Man Press Reviews

'A truly thought-provoking thriller that remains a page-turner right to the end' Booklist 'A writer of bold imagination and verve' Lauren Beukes 'Savage, intimate and inexorable' Nick Harkaway 'Powerful and distinctive' Guardian 'Smythe's storytelling is pacey and addictive; he has a fiendish talent for springing surprises' The Times 'Fully formed, fundamentally affecting, forward-thinking fiction. The sort of story that reminds us why we read, and what we, the people, need' Tor.com
