The Price You Pay

1 Mins read

The Price You Pay is gonzo noir for the gig economy generation from Aidan Truhen. Jack Price is the coke dealing entrepreneur who runs up against the Seven Demons, a super team of global assassins. Price is an uninhibited voice of scorn railing at the modern world but he’s soon going toe-to-toe with the corporate hitmen. The conflagration is over the top, regularly outrageous, and as much fun as casual violence can be. Truhen doesn’t respect the niceties of grammar but the writing fizzes and sparkles in a riot of fantastical and original crime fiction. Read our full review here.
