Duane Swierczynski is a much-needed breath of fresh air in the book world...This guy is a great storyteller. I never know what he is going to come up with or where he is going to take me. I just know I won't be complaining about a thing once I get there.
The premise may be absurd, but it's good enough to propel the breathless action scenes that make Swierczynski's cinematic novels so much fun to read - on the couch or on the run.
If non-stop, cool action sequences with fun characters are your thing, you need to read some Swierczynski stories
Inventive...breathes fresh life into a familiar plot with shifting perspectives, sly humor, puckish chapter titles and a crackerjack pace
Duane Swierczynski writes the 'new noir,' full of bad choices, courage, and sudden disaster, all delivered at a break-neck pace
Compulsive, written with wry humanity and a deft and thrilling touch for the unexpected
A three-generation crime saga... a resounding success, with each story line featuring full-blooded characters and intrigue that works both in its own right and in the larger context... Swierczynski just gets better and better.
I love the real American cop/noir feel to this novel and think the interwoven individual stories works incredibly well...This is a perfect blend of historical fiction and crime fiction. Highly recommended 5*
