Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“With Man with No Name, Laird Barron just staked his claim on the thriller genre. This is bold, complex, and absolutely riveting. Film this right now!” Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author
“Barron demonstrates his prowess in combining disparate narrative threads into one captivating, complex tale…Barron’s beautiful language is intentionally murky, capturing the mysterious, and at times frightening, quality of Japan’s gang underworld. Nanashi is a classic flawed lead character, with enough personality to keep the story from straying into clichéd territory. Even at its short length, this thriller has plenty of exciting twists and turns.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
