With GLOW, Ned Beauman has reinvented the international conspiracy thriller for a new generation.

A hostage exchange outside a police station in Pakistan.
A botched defection in an airport hotel in New Jersey.
A test of loyalty at an abandoned resort in the Burmese jungle.
A boy and a girl locking eyes at a rave in a South London laundrette . . .

For the first time, Britain's most exciting young novelist turns his attention to the present day, as a conspiracy with global repercussions converges on one small flat above a dentist's office in Camberwell.

Even at its ugliest and most sleep-deprived, the London in Ned Beauman's Glow is a place I want to visit. Even if we only see a sliver of it, his writing makes me believe that it sprawls in all directions. His use of language makes me want to write, which is the highest compliment I can give.
