By the second chapter this book became a relentless page-turner. By the fourth chapter our hero is a murderer. I'm restraining myself from looking at the ending to find out what happens. This is an old-fashioned "events spinning out of control" type of story. Think Barbara Stanwyck and Fred McMurray in a black-and-white film noir on the late show. And about that ending... totally unexpected. ( )
  Roycrofter | May 12, 2013 |
Harris' first thriller, Enemies, managed to be viscerally entertaining and intelligent at the same time--but this disappointing second novel is just dumb and violent: a sad comedown for the author of such serious reportage as Freedom Spent. ... True, Hasher sometimes broods loudly about the "Ability to Kill" and the "Immorality of Lawyers" and such--but any pretense to theme here is swamped by the luridly implausible plotting, the gratuitous sex/violence kinkiness, and the crude, Spillane-ish prose.

Epigraph
There is nothing serious in mortality. Solomon in all his glory was Solomon with the elements of the contemptible lurking in every fold of his robes and in every corner of his palace. -- Wilkie Collins
Dedication
First words
Looking one more time at the plain pine coffin before it was lowered into the precise grave, Hasher turned and walked off, quickly but unsteadily, as if he might lurch and fall.
