'There's only control, control of ourselves and others. And you have to decide what part you play in that control.' Cast your eye over the comfortable north London home of a family of high ideals, radical politics and compassionate feelings. Julia, Paul and their two daughters, Olivia and Sophie, look to a better society, one they can effect through ORGAN:EYES, the campaigning group they fundraise for and march with, supporting various good causes. But is it all too good to be true? When the surface has been scratched and Paul's identity comes under the scrutiny of the press, a journey into the heart of the family begins. Who are these characters really? Are any of them the 'real' them at all? Every Trick in the Book is a genre-deconstructing novel that explodes the police procedural and undercover-cop story with nouveau romanish glee. Hood overturns the stone of our surveillance society to show what really lies beneath.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for This Good Book: 'Astonishing, funny, bonkers, charming, disturbing, challenging, audacious, and, ultimately, profound.' (Melissa Fu, author of Peach Blossom Spring) 'So dark and poetic, so original and intelligent, and so utterly unputdownable.' (Tim Ewins, author of We Are Animals) 'If you like your fiction fresh, original and challenging, This Good Book is for you.' (Simon van der Velde, author of Backstories) 'The realisation of where the duo's commitment to their art is taking them is genuinely chilling. Hood's debut has a dark, compelling urgency.' (Alastair Mabbott, The Herald) 'Highly original, darkly funny... a compulsive read.' (Leigh Chambers) 'A novel about Glasgow, about art, and about obsession. This Good Book will have you gripped from the opening chapter to its disturbing conclusion. Iain Hood is an original new voice in Scottish fiction.' (Colette Paul)
