Product description


Beautifully plotted, with excellent characterisation and a highly developed social conscience, City Without Stars is an intelligent thriller that moves at a breath-taking pace. (NICHOLAS SEARLE, author of The Good Liar)

One of those books that just won't let you go - not when you're reading it and not for a long time afterwards. An exhilarating and kaleidoscopic novel that will also break your heart. Assured, trenchant and gripping, Baker has assumed his place among those crime writers you must read. (STAV SHEREZ, author of A Dark Redemption and The Intrusions)

'An unflinching portrayal of Mexico as a country brought to the brink of destruction by the narcos. But however harrowing it gets, the novel is too gripping to put down and is lightened by flashes of hope and bursts of humour.' (Sunday Express)

'Worth the near two-year hiatus. Tim Baker has woven together another intricately plotted, multiple narrative tale. a fascinating, immersive page-turning read. For those interested in reading crime fiction based in the border territory between the US and Mexico, City Without Stars will sit alongside powerful novels like The Power of Dog by Don Winslow and The Dead Women of Juarez by Sam Hawken.' (Crime Fiction Lover)

'A powerful second novel. With all the moral uncertainties of an Ellroy or a Winslow.' (Crime Time)

A wonderful follow-up novel from Tim Baker, author of the fabulous debut Fever City... With a variety of fascinating characters, this Mexican-set epic will appeal to those who enjoyed Don Winslow's The Power Of The Dog and The Cartel... Baker is a huge talent. (Crime Worm)

'Fascinating. one of the strengths of the novel is the portrayal of the females within it. A powerful story with characters that will stay with you long after the final page.' (A Crime Reader's Blog)

'I am not sure I have the language to do City Without Stars justice. [It's] powerful, magnificent, majestic, breathtaking . an incredible piece of storytelling written with a brutal beauty and an incredible intensity. It is a dark, dark read. The violence is brutal, the corruption is rife and the people are generally untrustworthy and unlikeable. But it all makes for utterly compelling reading.' (Grab This Book)

'A tense, fast-paced thriller, its short, sharp chapters pulling no punches and sparing no gruesome detail.' (Thriller Books Journal)

Book Description
