Praise for Northern Heist . . .
”One of the best heist novels I’ve ever read.” — Martin Sorenson, bookseller, Green Apple Books, San Francisco
”Full of double- and triple-crosses… ’Northern Heist’s’ deeds and details seem as real as a smashed kneecap, while its stopwatch tension, heightened by present-tense voice, is reminiscent of such classic caper films as ’Rififi’ and ’The Asphalt Jungle’.” — The Wall Street Journal
”O’Rawe channels both Elmore Leonard and Guy Ritchie in this heist thriller full of sharp twists and gritty dialogue, emerging with a style all his own. His reimagining of the real-life bank heist feels so authentic readers will hope he has a strong alibi. Ken Bruen fans won’t want to miss this one.” — PW starred review
“Gripping … A hugely impressive and skillfully crafted debut novel … Its dialogue is sharp and venomous … O’Rawe’s confidence as a storyteller takes off as the heist begins, dropping you in all kinds of damned places.” — The Irish Times
“A rollicking, colourful account.” — The Guardian
“A real page-turner with a polish unusual in a debut.” — The Belfast Telegraph
“A cunningly plotted thriller.” — The Independent (Ireland)
