London Boulevard

by Ken Bruen

London Boulevard Synopsis

When Mitchell is released from prison after serving three years for a vicious attack he doesn't remember, he reluctantly finds himself caught up with Robert Gant, a ruthless lowlife with violent plans. Attempting to stay out of Gant's way, Mitchell finds work as a handyman at the mansion of a faded movie actress. When she eagerly plies him with cash, cars and sex, Mitch starts to wonder if even this job comes with a catch. But it isn't long before Mitchell's violent past catches up with him. When people close to him start getting hurt, Mitchell is forced to act, and take brutal on revenge on those who've stolen his life...

London Boulevard Press Reviews

A crackingly written, taut and well-characterised crime yarn. * Telegraph * Unnervingly clever...Bruen has a patent on flinty dialogue and a disquieting feel for the language of violence. * New York Times * Bruen combines staccato prose and hard-edged dialogue with gritty realism and a terrifying look at London's dark underbelly. This one packs one hell of a powerful punch. * Booklist * Bruen is the finest purveyor of intelligent Brit-noir...delectably dark and nastily entertaining * The Big Issue * Truly great entertainment, permeated with a dark and disturbing strand that'll stay with you long after the final denouement. * Time Out *
