Maxim Jakubowski's view...

A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

First class pulp from the pen of acclaimed US author Lawrence Block, Borderline was a novel of blood and thunder he had written almost 50 years back and published under a pseudonym and long forgotten. Its revival couldn’t be more timely: it feels like the Tarantino movie bleeding all over the page. Five desperate people collide on the border between Texas and Mexico: a gambler down on his luck, a wanton divorcee, two sex show performers and a killer on the run. This is brutal crime with its gloves off and a true guilty pleasure to relish beyond the boundaries of political correctness, a modern western with bullets and fifth gear thrills to remind you that some books just want to be fun!

If you like Lawrence Block you might also like to read books by Elmore Leonard, John D Macdonald and Robert B. Parker.
