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!
On the border between Texas and Mexico, five lives are about to collide - with fatal results. MARTY - the gambler who rolls the dice on a night with...MEG - the divorcee who seeks excitement and finds...LILY - the beautiful hitchhiker lured into a live sex show by...CASSIE - the redhead with her own agenda...and WEAVER - the killer with a razor in his pocket...
