Overview

Katja from Simon Logan's award-winning KATJA FROM THE PUNK BAND is back. Free and on the mainland, she emerges from hiding, only to find herself hunted by debt collectors, mad surgeons, and a corrupt detective, all of whom will stop at nothing to claim her for their own. And behind this scramble lies the twisted mind of an old adversary, desperate to have his revenge. Replete with dark humour, chaotic storytelling, and a fast-paced Industrial thriller setting, GET KATJA is the latest novel from the author of PRETTY LITTLE THINGS TO FILL UP THE VOID, NOTHING IS INFLAMMABLE, and I-O.

"Energetic and amusing, this is a worthy sequel to the original." - PW

"Katja from the Punk Band was a story full of nonstop action and oddball characters and Get Katja is more of the same. From the very first pages of the novel, there is little time for the reader to stop and collect his thoughts as Logan keeps his foot on the gas pedal without letting up until the very end." - Examiner.com

Sequel to 2012's Katja from the Punk Band, this sees the eponymous character emerge from hiding to front her punk band once more, an ill-considered decision that attracts the close attention of the startlingly diverse assortment of people with a grudge against Katja. With a skill for inspiring vengeance, her friends unreliable allies at best and back-stabbing traitors at worst, Katja's primary defence is the fact that so many people, from corrupt cops to black market medical experimenters to cross-dressing gangster enforcers, are after her that the various schemes and gambits swirling around the musician interfere with one another. Logan handles his large cast with skill, flicking from person to person, from plot to plot and back and forth through time to create a fast paced madcap caper story. Although the book is not long enough to delve quite deeply enough into any given character, the author manages to paint them in vivid colors. Each has their own easily grasped reason for involvement with Katja, and nobody is handicapped with ethical or moral considerations that would impede their participation in the story. Energetic and amusing, this is a worthy sequel to the original. (Mar.)
