Listen to a sample

The action accelerates up and down the ten carriages but the question is: who will get off alive?

Daily Mail

Entertaining...high-speed...with lots of twists and turns...it has a Tarantino-meets-the-Coen-Brothers feel to it.

The Times

An entertaining thriller and a farce with a high body count... Kill Bill on wheels or a locked-room crime drama played out at 200mph

The Times

Highly original

Literary Review

Isaka knows how to keep his readers on their toes. His characters are colourful, varied and morally despicable...there's much more to it than a thrill-a-minute action fix. It's dark, funny, absurd and it certainly boast the most interesting bunch of characters we've seen in a while.
