Cuban-American thriller from the author of The Bloomsday Dead
McKinty has long been purveying a blend of muscular lyricism in which collide the brutalities of the crime novel and a knowing, self-effacing literary style... an incendiary, adrenalin-fuelled thriller
An intelligent novel of suspense about cultural identity... In trademark fashion, McKinty winds up his provocative tale with a violent and memorable final act
The talented McKinty does his usual first-rate job of making you like the characters he likes
... his amazing novel. It has riveting mystery, politics of just about every shade, thrills on almost every page.. I've rarely read a novel that had it all - human and drug trafficking, Hollywood excesses, illegals, ferocious vengeance - but what I found most compulsive was the wondrous compassion of the book. It moved me in ways I never anticipated. This is going to be the BIG BOOK of 2009
'A master of modern noir, up there with Lehane and Ellroy, Fifty Grand is a blast... showcasing McKinty's brutal lyricism'
