‘So you liked Irvine Welsh? Read CarnivoreCosmopolitan

Meet Leander: lover, fighter, liar.

He learnt a long time ago that nothing is as intoxicating as blood. But whether it’s his or someone else’s doesn’t matter any more. There’s a mysterious pain in every muscle of his body – and it’s got so bad that he’ll do anything to escape it.

Up to now, it’s been his secret. But it’s hard to remain invisible when you leave a trail of destruction everywhere you go. So, when he comes to the attention of one of London’s most infamous criminals, Leander decides to put his appetite for violence to the ultimate test.

Let the villain win.

Critical Praise

Suspend all rational thought and enjoy the – rather unsettling – ride’ Belfast Telegraph</p><p>‘[Leander is] a heartless hero for the millennial generation’ Standpoint magazine</p><p>‘The most original unreliable narrator and anti-hero you’ll encounter this year, or maybe even this decade. Crime book, literary fiction, contemporary tragedy; it doesn’t matter what pot you put it in, just read it.’ Crime Fiction Lover</p><p>‘Knew it would be unsettling &amp; challenging but Carnivore is moving &amp; tender too. Lyon is the Philip Ridley of South London.’ Jon Appleton</p> -
