Huffington Post, 23 Brilliant New Books for 2023 To Get Your Reading List Started

«Consultant unfurls from the perspective of a first-person narrator who writes scenarios of perfect crimes. It examines ... the violence of modern anonymity and capitalism.»

Readers News

«Wow … Such a fresh take. Perfect murders in the imperfect world of business and power. Quietly and stylishly told. There’s an honesty in the simplicity and brutality that is enlightening and thought-provoking. I’ll be thinking about it for a while»

Will Carver

«[The Consultant] is toweringly the most interesting of the autumn bunch ... beautifully crafted, witty, slick novel has a profound meta-physical basis»

Tablet

«The details and specifics of murder consulting are intriguing, and the plot propelled by its cerebral narrative and reasoning is refreshing ... it's a page turner, reminiscent of the American show, CSI.»

Segye Ilbo Literary Prize Judges

«These facts about Sung-soon Lim might astound you ... Every book of his boasts a drastically different sensibility, prose, and subject matter. His world building is unparalleled, his prose precise, and you can see the echo of extensive research that must have gone into the storytelling.»

Channel Yes

«An intriguing premise, cleverly executed, makes for a brilliant read. For The Consultant, a killer who never meets his victims, it all starts to go wrong when he’s told to kill someone he knows. Darkly funny, with a fascinating protagonist, it’s excellent

Guy Morpuss, author of Five Minds and Black Lake Manor

«The Consultant is not only a hugely entertaining book, it’s a clever book. As the morally ambiguous consultant goes about his business of arranging natural deaths to streamline corporate restructuring, he offers readers his razor-sharp observations on consumerism, capitalism and what it means to feel anonymous. It’s also damn funny»

M. W. Craven author of the Sunday Times bestselling Washington Poe series

«This tale of an accidental accomplice to serial murder spellbindingly combines the eerily affectless, morally ambiguous tone of a Patricia Highsmith novel with John Dickson Carr’s fecundity in devising “impossible” crimes»

Telegraph

«An epic satire of society and power, The Consultant charms and shocks, luring you in to its sizzling plot with no mercy, until you're petrified of how it can possibly end. A blistering indictment of our modern world, this thriller will make you question everything. Brilliant»
