really liked it

Read the blurb for the low down on what happens in this fantastic debut from William Boyle. It's a great character piece with everything set up nicely for his characters to move around each other - they live and breathe in a way that few first time writers achieve. Mr Boyle dumps you right in at the deep end with the unrelenting backstreets of Brooklyn adding to the tension and frustration of his characters.

Comes with recommendations from Tom Franklin, Willy Vlautin and Richard Lange, amongst others, which should be enough for you to stump up the small change for this quality first novel. Recommended
