"Quentin Brent's The Reason is an absolutely masterful explosive debut thriller. Brent has a rare style which is at once minimalist and yet vibrantly elegant all the while cleverly hinting at the mayhem just around the corner.
The spot-on dialogue is crackling crisp poignant and punchy by turns. The Reason will captivate the most discerning reader who loves international intrigue. It's the ultimate meeting of high finance and high velocity.
A brilliant book today Hollywood would be collectively insane to not adapt Brent's The Reason into a feature film tomorrow." - Robert Blake Whitehill author of The Ben Blackshaw Series robertblakewhitehill.com
