Présentation de l'éditeur

From the top 100 Kindle bestselling author of 'Max' and 'The House of the Wicked' - 'Pressure Cooker', a treat for lovers of a character-driven story with a spattering of dark thriller. Join the 200,000 + people who have downloaded D. M. Mitchell.

From reviews of Pressure Cooker:

'All of his books are so original and his style of writing is so smooth and descriptive that I am there right in the middle of the story. I found every book and short story impossible to put down (I have read everything I can lay my hands on)
'A fine read. Never predictable. Crisp action. Thoughtful without being sentimental.'
'[Mitchell] has an amazing way with atmosphere and character and an ability to jump from past to present to diaries to thoughts, keeping everything in the air without losing his grip once.'
'A great character-driven novel, unpredictable, lots of threads coming satisfyingly together. Superbly written; this author has a real gift for story telling'
'It makes you happy and sad in equal measures.'

Pressure Cooker blends D. M. Mitchell's trademark skill of highly developed, believable characterisation, moments of dark suspense, and intricate plotting, with tales of ordinary lives sent into turmoil.

Frank Harris is on the run. Again. Firstly from his large debts and an equally large Irishman he owes it to; secondly from Larry, the violent, murdering drug pusher he shared a squat with and who is hunting him and ideally wants him dead; and thirdly from himself.

As he flees the city, by chance he hears a piece of music playing on a radio, something he wrote for his failed rock band thirty years ago. Like a hare bolting for cover he heads north, headlong into the lives of the surviving band members, each now going their own very different ways.

But Frank Harris spells trouble and always has done. When he persuades the group to get back together for one last gig, the tragedies of the past and the problems of the present come crashing together with consequences that will affect them all.

Alternating between the 1970s and the present, Pressure Cooker is a tale of the trials and tribulations of difficult friendships and painful love; of teenage dreams and dashed hopes; of tragedy and comedy.

And a smattering of thriller...

I was trying to find a hook to characters portrayed in this book. I could not develop any interest in any outcome. A big waste of time.

This book is very different from his other books. I have read almost all of Mitchell's books and found Pressure Cooker verydisappointing. Usually his books are psychic thrillers, Pressure Cooker is not a psychic thriller. I was very disappointed. If you are not familiar with Mitchell's writing you will probably enjoy this book more than I did. It is well written and developed but I do not think it fits the style of the author. I like Psychic Thrillers!

This is a hard review. I just hated all the characters, except Bluto. For 3/4 of the book I didn't care what happened to them. It wasn't until the very last they began to redeem themselves a bit, but I still didn't like them.
D.M. Mitchell wrote it, so it was well written, good story, little mystery. Bluto showed what all were missing.
Played well on Text-To-Speech.

A fine read--never predictable. Crisp action. Thoughtful without being sentimental. The well developed characters show growth without being untrue to themselves. I will definitely seek out other books by this author.

Great drama, well written characters and a good story as well. I really enjoyed this book with the life stories and memories created by Mitchell, but I do wish he had went just a little further at the end.
