Reviews
Praise for The Gun Seller

"As a writer, Mr. Laurie is smart, charming, warm, cool (if need be) and high-spirited. He has Ian Fleming's dash, flash, slam-bam plotting and technical knowledge of hardware--especially with exotic weaponry--as well as P. G. Wodehouse's wit and sense of detachment . . . a genuinely witty and sophisticated entertainment."
--The New York Times

"A tasty treat for fans of both comedic novels and suspense thrillers . . . Laurie's writing is droll in that particularly British way that Americans love . . . The Gun Seller moves as fast as Lang's favorite Kawasaki. And Laurie's sense of wordplay is great fun . . . The Gun Seller will leave readers shaken, stirred--and giggling."
--USA Today

"A ripping spoof of the spy genre."
Vanity Fair

"British writer/actor Laurie's first novel has all the trademarks of an offbeat James Bond adventure . . . the mind-boggling intricacy of a Robert Ludlum plot, and, most gratifyingly, the irreverent attitude of A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Laurie glee­fully shakes and stirs a cocktail of international ter­rorism, high-tech helicopters, devious arms dealers, Bond-caliber beauties, Swiss ski resorts, and British intelligence into a cool concoction that zips along, heralds a new hero . . . and leaves plenty of room for a sequel."
--Entertainment Weekly

"The funniest and most charming novel I have read in years and years. If you see someone howling with laughter on the subway, sobbing with joy in the street or exploding with delight on an airplane this year, it's because they're reading The Gun Seller."
--Stephen Fry

"Clever and hilarious, with a story that is intricate, tense and well researched--and unstintingly joyous read."
Time Out

"The Gun Seller is fast, topical, wry, suspenseful, hilarious, witty, surprising, ridiculous, and pretty wonderful. And you don't need a permit to buy it . . . A delightful novel."
The Washington Post

"A very funny book . . . makes many another comic novel look slow-witted in comparison."
Sunday Telegraph

"A terrific debut."
Daily Telegraph

"A first-rate thriller . . . an awesome entertainment machine . . . a smashing book."
The Plain Dealer (Cleveland)

"A hilarious, bumbling caper."
