That's the only word I can find to start this review appropriately.

I have read a lot of British crime novels. I have been disappointed by a lot of British crime novels. But not this one. Debut novels are sometimes a bit sketchy. Not this one. 'The Drop' is one of the most gripping novels I have read in a number of years.

I won't go into the plot - others have already done that. I just want to praise the author for his plots, his characters (especially the relationship between David Blake and Finney), and the ability to grab me on the first page and not let up until the very end. The pacing was excellent - and the finale was brilliant.

Suffice to say that I am looking forward to reading more...and more...
