Crime / Mystery Debut Books of the Month Thriller and Suspense

LoveReading View on Smoked

A very violent criminal gang which attracts some extraordinarily nasty characters has an old score to settle … Smoke.  But it hadn’t banked on the reformed criminal’s girlfriend … on one of its members growing tired of slaughter … on general mayhem … a plucky flatmate or on a series of mishaps that grace this fast-paced, addictive novel.  It’s Tarantino/Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels territory and it is fantastic.

About Patrick Quinlan

Patrick Quinlan was the youngest child in a big, noisy, New York Irish-American family. Ten minutes late to supper and all the food was gone. Other kids in the neighbourhood wanted to become cops, or firemen, or crime kingpins. He wanted to become Jimi Hendrix. At an early age, he became an accomplished and incorrigible liar, eventually finding work that made good use of this talent - journalist, political operative, copywriter, and now novelist... He lives on the coast of Maine with his wife, Joy Scott.Photograph copyright © Ed Zelinsky
