My novels The Cut (Penguin), Losing Faith (Hamish Hamilton) and This is the Day (Allison and Busby) were published between 1999 and 2007 and are now available in new editions from Lume.


The Cut


‘Tense, street-smart novel with a mean streak… A sharp, observant, energetic writer with a nimble sense of language… A joy to read.’  

The Times  


‘Definitely an author to be watched.’

New Woman


‘A thriller with depth and edge…infectious page-turner, written with remarkable style and efficacy.’  

Maxim -- Book of the Month


Losing Faith


‘Intense and addictive.’

The Face


‘Thrilling…he has a prose style with a palpable fizz to it.’

Glasgow Herald


‘A terrific read -- Blythe captivates the reader from start to finish.’



This is the Day

‘Chronicled in a fine, acerbic and humorous style; poignant and telling.’

Sue Baker, Publishing News


‘A real page-turner... Blythe's meticulous attention to detail makes this book all the more gripping, and his metamorphosis of Ella's character throughout the book is nothing short of genius.’

South Wales Argus
