'Compact and brilliantly detailed. The scams, shoot-outs and sweat of desperation come straight from the street in this posthumous wild ride from a modern master of crime fiction.' --Publishers Weekly
'Violent, lightning paced and exotic, filled with a wonderful cast of lowlifes and dialogue that crackles.'
From the Publisher
'Stark' was Eddie Bunker's first novel, written in the early sixties and a harbinger of the books that brought him critical acclaim such as 'No Beast So Fierce'. Never published during his lifetime, the manuscript was only rediscovered after his death and was published in English for the first time by No Exit Press.
Jennifer Steele, Bunker's widow, has written the Afterword to 'Stark'
