LONDON BOULEVARD – VG Ken Bruen – Standalone
When Mitchell is released after spending 3 years in prison for a crime he doesn’t
remember committing. Picked up by his friend Billy Norton, he’s offered work by Billy with loan shark Tommy Logan. Trying to stay out of Logan’s way, he becomes general handyman for a faded movie actress with her devoted butler, Jordan. Other people in Mitchell’s life are his disturbed sister, Briony, and new-found love, Aisling.
There is something about Bruen’s writing which is unique and compelling. His characters are not likable, but we’re drawn to them. His writing is spare and sharp. His books are dark and somewhat disturbing, but irresistible. His books are not for everyone, but they certainly are on my must-read list.
