'In TOMORROW, THE KILLING, Polansky shows us he is no one-book wonder... If you haven't read Polansky yet, you must remedy this ASAP. He writes gripping, addictive stories with a grim eloquence...Very, very highly recommended. Polansky is definitely among my new favourite authors. Essential reading.'
Imagine that Quentin Tarantino, possessed by the ghost of J.R.R. Tolkien, did an eight-ball of cocaine and wrote a novel to be read by the late Johnny Cash. LOW TOWN is something like that, only better.
Polansky is a deft, sensitive dramatist with the blackest sense of humor--and LOW TOWN is brilliant proof. Polansky has managed to craft an assured, roaring, and rollicking hybrid, a cross-genre free-for-all that relishes its tropes while spitting out their bones. And he does it all while spinning one hell of a gripping mystery. Much like its grim, perversely charismatic antihero, LOW TOWN stakes a narrow turf--then completely owns every inch of it.
Praise for TOMORROW, THE KILLING:"With THE STRAIGHT RAZOR CURE, Polansky pushed the envelope of modern fantasy. With TOMORROW, THE KILLING, he tears through the envelope and pushes for horizons yet unseen."
