Review by: Matt Kelland on Nov. 20, 2011 :
If you like your thrillers oozing testosterone and tequila, this one's for you. It's an uncompromising hard-boiled, gritty read that feels like Hemingway, Hunter S Thompson and Elmore Leonard got drunk and decided to write a short story. It's full of violent twists and desperate turns, with a plot that doesn't stop moving and smacks you in the face every few pages, and then makes you laugh. The descriptions are terse, but highly evocative, with just enough detail to make the settings and characters feel authentic and believable, even though they're grotesque and unnatural.

All the way through, I kept imagining it as a movie by Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino - think Once Upon a Time in Mexico in a grindhouse style, and you've got it. It even feels like a screenplay in some ways - every time a new character is introduced, they're in capital letters, and it's almost structured into movie-type scenes. It took a little getting used to, but it works, and it works well. I hope he sells the movie rights to someone, because I'd watch this. John Grisham might not be so keen on the idea, though!

Highly recommended for thriller lovers.
