[Kellerman] ruminates on the practice of writing, the experience of sudden literary success, the nature of friendship, and the contrasts between the lives of writers and spies. [I'll Catch You] is very funny - and insightful * Booklist *
Another brilliant performance from Kellerman * Kirkus Review *
A writer of great imagination and skill * Sunday Telegraph *
Kellerman has a gift for creating compelling characters as well as for crafting an ingenious plot that grabs the reader and refuses to let go * Publishers Weekly *
Brilliant or bonkers? It's difficult to decide with this gem from the oldest son of the Kellerman clan... so why is it such a good, original read? Maybe that's what makes it brilliant * Weekend Sport *
Startlingly written, it weaves a very particular spell * Daily Mail *
A clever, hugely enjoyable spoof of the thriller genre * Irish Independent *
This very funny and ingeniously plotted dismantling of the conspiracy thriller genre also mercilessly mocks the pretensions and hypocrisies of the literary world * Morning Star *
Jesse Kellerman is an experienced crime novelist who writes well and invents original, unexpected plots. This book certainly has one of those... it's clever, and there are some lovely turns of phrase, as well as biting wit and many in-jokes relating to writing and publishing* Literary Review *
Superbly original... a surreal, hilarious romp * Catholic Herald *
