A Stark Welcome to the Genre!, 7 Sept. 2010
'Stunning debut', 'brilliant debut', 'great debut' - just some of the review phrases that persuaded me to give this new writer a try. It's safe to say that I wasn't disappointed. 'American Devil' is packed full of great material and Stark has great control of it.
If you love your crime thrillers, then you'll certainly enjoy this gripping ride. But there are also plenty of intelligent and original touches to make it feel fresh. This really is a remarkable novel, especially considering it is Stark's first. So I'll just add 'cracking debut' to the list.
