Format: Paperback
Not quite 5 star, would have given it 4.5. First Willocks book I have read and wont be the last. Picked up in the library after reading on-line reviews of his other books. For grim, brutal action laced with dark dark humour and fleshed out weird characters you can't beat this. A real page turner. Missed out on the five stars because of the last chapter which is pure terminator style mayhem and carnage written in a differing style to the bulk of the book, without humor and intrigue. Also felt there were a few loose ends which would have been satisfying to know more about, eg Grimes early meeting with the fat man, and what happened to the fat man after.
Minor points and looking forward to the next.

Am loving Tim Willocks books, this one is the sequel to Bad City Blues. I think Mr.Willocks is a very dark character to be able to create the character of Clarence Jefferson! (No offence-meant in the nicest of ways ) even the hero of these books is flawed in ways I won't go into so as not to spoil the plot. The characters in both books are deep and thoroughly rendered warts and all, though mostly warts :). A great joy to read though and every page makes you want to get on to the next!

I enjoyed rereading this again Tim Willocks is a superb writer and he gives his characters a rich darkness that's thoroughly enjoyable. Redemption may be possible for some but to be honest you don't care your just glad you didn't meet them!

brillant! the best willocks book yet. a bloody, violent tale of obsession,revenge and honour. fast paced and ferocious like a 300 pound boar. imagine hemmingway, raymond chandler, frank miller and john woo getting together to write a (post)modern hardboiled noir and u come close 2 how great this is. hollywood where are u?. just buy it.

Format: Paperback
In keeping with his first outing in Bad City Blues, in which he was forced to go head to head with the juggernaut that was infamous law enforcement officer, Captain Clarence Jefferson, sometime psychiatrist Eugene `Cicero' Grimes is reluctantly compelled to step into the breach once more as he finds himself enmeshed within the web spun by the machiavellian machinations of the giant fat man.

The story is, as might be expected from anyone familiar with Willocks' work, gut wrenching, visceral stuff characterized by the odd philosophical rumination between lulls in the carnage. Perhaps, it's this seemingly odd juxtaposition of musings on the mysteries of existence and the meaning of life and the frenetic action the major players are forced to engage in by the dark, primal forces that drive them that explains the book's attraction. It's brilliantly written, compellingly page-turning stuff!

Another grim and brutal book from Willocks, with wickedly dark humour. If you liked Green River Rising, you'll like this one. If you didn't, don't buy this book. A real page turner, as with the other books by Willocks, but not to the standard of GRR.
