Random House presents the audiobook edition of Kill 'Em All by John Niven, read by Tom Riley. The long-awaited sequel to Kill Your Friends. It is 2017 - the time of Trump, Brexit and fake news. And time for the return of Steven Stelfox, exactly 20 years on from his Britpop heyday. Now 47 and rich beyond the dreams of avarice, Stelfox works only occasionally as a music industry ‘consultant’. A fixer. A problem solver. He’s had a call from his old friend James Trellick, now president of Unigram, one of the largest record companies in America....

A great read or listen perhaps. Not for the faint hearted nor for those with a misplaced idealisation of a particular pop icon. Incredible and scarily accurate portrayal of characters interwoven with a storyline that is very zeitgeist in a World of Donald Trump, hyper normalisation and extreme greed. Niven Has excelled again. This is probably his most rounded novel from a social analytical perspective. It’s still bloody funny though.
