Ian Rankin, creator of Inspector John Rebus and author of THE COMPLAINTSExcellent.

George Pelecanos, author of THE CUTIn the tradition of Irvine Welsh and Ian Rankin, Allan Guthrie chronicles life in the underbelly of Edinburgh with dazzling grace. TWO-WAY SPLIT is a hard-edged, fast-paced noir thriller with outstanding dialogue and plenty of unforgettable bad guys. Its Scottish crime fiction with a unique American hard-boiled twist. Jason Starr, author of THE PACKWith razor-sharp characterisation and an evocative sense of place, the novels pace never relents: the supremely damaged characters that Guthrie conjures up are seldom let off the hook, and stew throughout in their fetid juices.

Dark and splendid. The Guardian...a memorable and stunning and pitch-perfect debut and one you should grab forthwith. I cant remember a first novel this good in a long, long time. Mystery ScenePraise for the novella BYE BYE BABY, a Top Ten Kindle BestsellerThe approach is so fresh that it makes the whole thing feel like the first time Ive read a police story Do Some DamageA story that moves quickly, in short chapters of crisp prose, with plenty of plot turns to hold the attention, and characters you can love and others you can hate...

Like Guthries full-length novels, Bye Bye Baby is sly, noir as all hell (more noir than some, actually), and it just might bring a tear of pity to your eyes. Its a police procedural filled with incident and back story, and man, what an ending. Detectives Beyond Borders...a dark, clever, funny and sad story which races along to reach a smart conclusion. A tough and lovely slice of the hard side of life.
