From the Publisher

Reviews for Butcher's Boy:
The authenticity is on display on every page, in every paragraph. From how
hot desert air feels on the skin in Las Vegas to how paperwork is shuffled
in the Justice Department to how a hired killer slips into a locked hotel
room to fulfil a contract, the author's skill in creating his world
repeatedly awes the reader - Michael Connelly --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Thomas Perry has never reached the popularity of many "revenge" writers (including Shakespeare), but his "Butcher's Boy" (and its successor, "Sleeping Dogs"), is a true classic, the Bard nothwithstanding. What happens if you're a very good hired killer and the Mob doesn't pay you out after your flawlessly executed last job? You let the devil loose between the pigeons. Yes the guy is amoral - thou shall not kill and all that - but he has a brutal code of honour, and you can't help cheering for him. I wonder if Carol O'Connell, with her Mallory novels, didn't pinch at least a little of Perry's flavour! Oh, and don't forget his Jane Whitefield novels either.

Perry is a very good writer in the genre. However subsequent reading of book following on from this reveals that he has had some good ideas, and he is meticulous, but he does return to use some of them again and again. Well worth reading though

Thomas Perry at his best. The Butcher's Boy series are an excellent combination of fast, hard action and quiet reflection and realism. These books will suit fans of Robert Ludlum, Stephen Leather and Randolph Fiennes (Feather Men and The Sett) and David Morrell.
