Summary

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. Trellick has a huge headache on his hands in the shape of....

Lucius Du Pre. The biggest pop star on earth. Well, once the biggest pop star on earth. Now he’s a helpless junkie and a prolific, unrepentant sexual predator. Through a programme of debt restructuring so complex even Trellick can barely understand it, Du Pre is massively in hock to the record company. The only way he can possibly pay it off is to embark on a worldwide comeback tour he’s in no shape to do. The picture is further complicated when the parents of one of Du Pre’s ‘special friends’ begin blackmailing him. If their video gets out, Du Pre’s brand will be utterly toxic and will take Unigram down with it. 

Enter Stelfox stage right. Only he has the lack of morality to spin this one. With stealth and cunning he begins to chart a road out of the nightmare and to make a killing in the process. For this age of ‘American carnage’ - of populism, of the lowest common denominator, of the Big Lie - is truly Stelfox’s time to shine. But in this time of uncertainty, nothing is a given.

Critic reviews

"A banging action satirical thriller. But it’s also a proper novel about the Trumpian era, of the reality TV era, the fake news era. It’s managed to say a lot of things in a way that very few other novels are doing and in a very comedic way." (Irvine Welsh)

"John Niven understands our era better than almost anyone." (Douglas Coupland)

He's back, he's bad, he's brilliant

Steven Stelfox and a few of the old gang - now older, wiser, meaner and richer than ever. The best bunch of anti hero's all rolled into one book. He is a horrible man, truly horrible man, but I do just love to hear all of his horrible thoughts and deeds. Laughed at so many parts in the book. I was sitting in my flat, listening to this book and it was like Stelfox was looking right at me when he came out with my favourite lines in the book - even though he actually called me a "Catch Up Next Tuesday" (You'll get it when you listen.) That said, he thinks all of us tolers are, so I didn't take it to personally. Oh, so if you're easily offended, possibly even not so easily offended...... You may find the main character a bit offensive, it is why he is so good to listen to. He even managed a derogatory line about my home town in Scotland - He's superb! My first review I have written in over a year having decided to quit writing reviews.... This one really made made me want to say how much I enjoyed the book and the others by the Author. There are 2 books prior to this in the Stelfox Series and really recommend those too, along with the others by the Author on Audible all of which I have in library.
