Mostyn Thomas and the Big Rave (Graffeg 2018)
"This pitch-black comedy is bolstered by genuine poignancy as Williams explores South Wales in a moment of change, aided by some moving relationships between key characters and excellent dialogue."
Ben East, The Observer
"Richard Williams’ debut is a taut crime thriller which cuts a meditative account of Welsh farming life with the madcap energy of crime capers like Trainspotting or JJ Connolly’s Layer Cake. Rooted in a resonant sense of time and place – early 90s Pembrokeshire – and with a rich cast of kooky characters, it proves a pacey read… a trip worth taking."
Alex Diggins, New Welsh Review
"Mostyn Thomas and the Big Rave is an unusual novel, cinematic and fast-paced, packed with vibrant characters from farmers to surfers to drug dealers and loan sharks, and full of love for the unique and fascinating landscape of Pembrokeshire."
Anjali Joseph, Author
The Sheriff of Geneva (Graffeg 2020)
"A gripping crime caper inhabited by a group of vividly realised and hugely entertaining characters...does for burger restaurants what Jaws did for sea swimming...an impressive second novel."
"A cast of larger-than-life characters and outrageous villains star in this fast-paced black comedy laced with heinous crimes and twisted retribution."
Daren King, Author of Boxy an Star and Booker Prize Finalist
