Katja, like everyone else stuck on the work island they call home, wants to get to the mainland by any means necessary. Shooting her boyfriend and stealing a chemical vial is one way to ensure her safe passage; the only problem is, she's not the only one who wants it, and the freedom it will bring. There's Nikolai the joystick junkie; Aleksakhina, Katja's parole officer; Vladimir Kohl, the smalltime chemical dealer, and his boss Szerynski; the rival chemical lord Dracyev, and his lover, Ylena. And there's the Man In Red, ready and waiting for whoever is (un)lucky enough to end up with the vial.KATJA FROM THE PUNK BAND is JACKIE BROWN meets the Sex Pistols, a fastpaced industrial crimethriller that weaves multiple storylines and timeframes, from the author of PRETTY LITTLE THINGS TO FILL UP THE VOID, NOTHING IS INFLAMMABLE, and IO.

Editorial Reviews

Logan maneuvers a large cast through overlapping sections of the plot, setting up characters separately and then slamming them into violent confrontations. Readers who can tolerate the deliberately unpleasant action will appreciate the skill with which it's presented." – Publishers Weekly"For a neat slice of punk lit, Simon Logan won't see you wrong. Katja speaks to the disenfranchised; Logan populating her pages with a wonderful menagerie of characters from start to finish. This is a page-turner like none other, a merry-go-round of bizarro that will have your eyes bleed with tiredness rather than put this bad girl down." – Wayne Simmons, author of FLU"Logan is a stylish transgressor for the next evolutionary moment; he reminds me of Harlan Ellison at his most daring and dangerous-raw, fearless, unpredictable, disturbing, and much needed." – Jack O'Connell, author of Word Made Flesh and The Resurrectionist
