UK Praise for You Were Never Really Here
“Ames is an adept purveyor of the very noir, particular scenes of violence. He achieves more in less than 100
pages than most crime novels three times the length do” —The Times, Crime Books of the Year 2016

“A striking and powerful noir debut that can be consumed in a single sitting. . . . Ames reveals himself here
as a stylish thriller writer”—Daily Mail

“[A] fast-moving, agreeably violent and perfectly pared-down novella”—Spectator
