I Love My Smith and Wesson: A Novel by David Bowker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Speaking of Terror, here's an underworld Thriller featuring an aptly named RAWHEAD (I wondered when BLOODY BONES would make an appearance...since they are sort of gruesome twins, in Appalachian Folklore)
This tale is gruesome, violent and very Goth-ic....with a touch of Rancid Victorian Romance....and some shit about a demonic "Elemental Power"...a Spirit of Darkness..
This book has all the elements of basic LA Noir, transplanted to the squalor of Manchester, UK.....Pithy, deadpan prose, with streaks of "purple"....a parade of piquant scumbags...and cringe-inducing violence......
In 2005, i couldn't wait for his next book
4 Stars...and then some
