8. Kill Your Friends - John Niven
Why? Kill Your Friends details the story of an out of control A&R guy working in the hedonistic music industry at the height of Britpop. What makes protagonist Steven Stelfox stand out? Well, he's got a touch of psychosis. But in a world of huge egos, endless drugs and no limits, how can you tell who the dangerous people are? What makes Kill Your Friends so exciting is it's so close to the bone. Niven worked in the music business in the nineties and there are some real life similarities.
