Product description

Review

A magnificently entertaining gun held to the head of the crime thriller genre (Guardian)

GUN MACHINE sees Ellis grab hold of the mainstream by its windpipe and demand acceptance; a perfectly flawless crime book with a feral glint in its eye. (Independent on Sunday)

If only other police procedurals had half the gumption and imaginative power of this novel (Big Issue)

A dazzling oasis in the desert of grimly identical police procedurals (Financial Times)

Sick, slick and very funny...[Ellis] doesn't need pictures to create his gripping, grave new world (Daily Telegraph)

[Ellis] turns to conventional crime fiction with startling success...powerful writing and vast imagination (The Times)

Ellis tackles the police procedural, although it's bloodier and more intriguing than any episode of Law & Order or CSI, and arms it with gallows humor, high-tension action scenes and an unlikely hero (USA Today)

Just about everything in GUN MACHINE, Warren Ellis's dark but pleasingly quirky crime thriller, is a little bit off, not quite what you'd expect...In his way Tallow is almost as weird as the hunter, and yet he's also oddly endearing, so single-minded you can't help rooting for him. (New York Times)

Never stops to draw breath. It's a monster of a book, bowel-looseningly scary in places, darkly uproarious in others, and remorseless as the killer who hunts in its pages...particularly good, even by the high standards of a Warren Ellis tale (Cory Doctorow Boing Boing)

Book Description

An apartment full of guns. A hundred unsolved murders. An explosive, utterly unique crime novel from world-famous comics writer Warren Ellis.
