Product Description


Praise for TOMORROW, THE KILLING:"With THE STRAIGHT RAZOR CURE, Polansky pushed the envelope of modern fantasy. With TOMORROW, THE KILLING, he tears through the envelope and pushes for horizons yet unseen." (Myke Cole, author of Control Point)

'In TOMORROW, THE KILLING, Polansky shows us he is no one-book wonder... If you haven't read Polansky yet, you must remedy this ASAP. He writes gripping, addictive stories with a grim eloquence...Very, very highly recommended. Polansky is definitely among my new favourite authors. Essential reading.' (

Polansky is a deft, sensitive dramatist with the blackest sense of humor--and LOW TOWN is brilliant proof. Polansky has managed to craft an assured, roaring, and rollicking hybrid, a cross-genre free-for-all that relishes its tropes while spitting out their bones. And he does it all while spinning one hell of a gripping mystery. Much like its grim, perversely charismatic antihero, LOW TOWN stakes a narrow turf--then completely owns every inch of it. (The AV Club on THE STRAIGHT RAZOR CURE)

Imagine that Quentin Tarantino, possessed by the ghost of J.R.R. Tolkien, did an eight-ball of cocaine and wrote a novel to be read by the late Johnny Cash. LOW TOWN is something like that, only better. (52 Book Reviews on THE STRAIGHT RAZOR CURE)

Book Description

The third novel in Daniel Polansky's brilliant dark fantasy Low Town series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great World Building 24 Oct 2014
By Ged
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As this trilogy is told in the first person singular, it's technically impossible for the Warden to be the narrator of this excellent series given the way it ends.

Truth is, I didn't want it to end. Low Town isn't a place I'd care to visit, but reading about it and it's unsavory denizens is fascinating. The author has built a world of vivid depth, so much so you can almost smell it!

The flawed, amoral character of the main protagonist was beautifully rendered. Ideally suited to the mean streets he walks every day.

Although this is a Fantasy series, it would easily appeal to fans of noir thrillers, detective and spy stories. War, historical fiction, etc. Great crossover potential without compromising its core identity.

Daniel Polanski must have some great ideas up his sleeve if he can walk away from Low Town and She Who Waits Behind All Things. I look forward to reading them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Amazing 2 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm a huge fan of the Low Town series and was eagerly anticipating this new release and I'm very pleased to say that 'She Who Waits' doesn't dissapoint in any way.

All Wardens chickens are coming home to roost at once and this time it's becoming more and more difficult for him to see a way out. Low Town as a place once again comes alive and gives a wholly convincing backdrop to the story which along with a varied and engaging cast really pushes the story along.

The sarcastic and caustic tone is once again front and centre with the hint of violence underlining every exchange, and when it does erupt it is always hard hitting.

It's not for the faint hearted but the ending is stunning and even though you may expect what's coming I was completely floored by the execution. Overall I can't emphasise enough what a brilliant addition to a brilliant series this is.

Well I had been waiting a while for the last Low Town installment and I was not disappointed. We rejoin the Warden for more of what made the first and second books so enjoyable - jarring, menacing dialogues, cynical monologues, dark humor an of course a high body count. The first couple of chapters were slow and to be honest a bit dull, but soon picks up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific. 26 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Follows on seamlessly from the previous two excellent titles and brings a logical finale to the series.
Can't wait for his next work although I shall miss the perils and plots of Low Town.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great end to the trilogy! 12 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've enjoyed all of the Low Town novels this being no exception. A great grim dark romp filled with the usual intrigue and cut throat action that has been central to my enjoyment. The characters are likable even when they are being swines. If you enjoy the likes of Abercrombie or Gemmel jump into the Low Town series and you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best. 6 Feb 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have never written a review on here but having read the last instalment in this awesome series I felt I had to add my recommendation.

Well written, gripping and a bloody good ride that ends in a brick wall.
