Ken Bruen says of FSIAB
"2011 is off to a magnificent start, this novel dazzled me, delighted and provoked me. Never no more will I view Old Blue Eyes in the same light. A stunning piece of sustained imaginative artistry"
I also read the manuscript for Matt's unpublished crime novel and I gotta believe this one's gonna get snapped up pretty quick. This is by no means a cozy. This is a hard boiled crime story, set in St. Louis,Mo. It revolves around a heist of millions from a Credit Union and soon everything goes to Hell. There are alot of people who want to get there hands on that kinda cash and will kill to get it. This ones got great characters, great dialouge, and lots of action & some very brutal & sometimes funny scenes. It reminded me of early Ken Bruen. For all of you out there who loved Benjamin Whitmer's wonderful debut novel "PIKE", you will want to keep an eye out for this one down the road. I'm no pro at this, all I know is what I like and I liked this one alot. Like Ken says, it was a great way to kick off 2011. I can only hope to find a few more as entertaining as this one in the year to come.
