Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Bourdain serves up a delectable concoction sure to appeal.” Denver Post
“With another antic tale, Bourdain establishes himself as a new master of the wiseass crime comedy…A potentially routine mob caper is brought to life by tight plotting, appealing characters and a stylish mix of irony, snappy dialogue and amoral verve.” Publishers Weekly
“A mystery in which plot takes a backseat to colorful characters and witty dialogue…Readers…who enjoy meeting interesting, quirky characters and listening to sharp dialogue will be pleased.” Booklist
“This rowdy beach story about an over-the-hill hit man and a retired Mafioso is charmingly narrated by Chris Patton, who lends subtle characterizations to most of the main players. To his credit, Patton doesn’t fall into the trap of making the gangsters sound like The Sopranos.” AudioFile
