"Irish-born screenwriter Leonard (husband of Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James) makes his YA debut with a hard-hitting adventure that plunges its hero into a bleak, crime-ridden London . . . Leonard is clearly writing for the screen, with well-drawn action scenes, snappy patter, and a brand of noir undercoated with fast food grease . . . The thriller travels at a gripping pace, and has a thick-skinned, yet sympathetic protagonist at the head." --Publishers Weekly
