It's autumn 2008, and Matt Freeman is having a very bad day. Stuck in Canary Wharf, he's overwhelmed by shoddy merchandise, hollow corporations, and broken promises. Later that night, things only get worse when he drops in on his girlfriend, Bobbie, a fashion PR and reality TV show fanatic.
As his London life spirals murderously out of control, Matt is forced to seek out old flames and consider North Korean business ventures. Sneered at by sales assistants, abused by cabbies, and mugged by his own dreams, he searches for a final means of escape. Get Me Out of Here is a novel of comic anger, of success and failure, commerce and culture - and, fundamentally, belief - in a busted city.

"[W]ith Matt Freeman, Sutton has really captured the Zeitgeist...Is he a killer or just a frustrated loser? Following the clues is fascinating in itself. When I finished this book, I wanted to read it again, and did'." (Financial Times)
"This is a crime novel that jangles with the best sort of Highsmithian bug-eyed paranoia, but it's also a savage satire on our over-inflated expectations and sense of entitlement. A dark comedy in the style of early Martin Amis, Get Me Out of Here will have you laughing and flinching at the same time." ( Guardian)
