Format: Kindle Edition
..... as an author who ranks with the best in 'crime noir' on both sides of the Atlantic. This book and 'Painting in the Dark' are the best examples of the author's skill in painting scenes and characters so vividly that he doesn't need fast-moving or complicated plots to hold the reader gripped. Yes people die, often painfully, but James doesn't do blood-'n-guts like too many new authors and I suppose new readers might even find his style a little old-fashioned.
In 'Slaughter Music' James creates Tim Hawk and Irena Kazan as characters more complex than many crime authors would bother with.
I hope that publishing his books for Kindle will bring him the degree of recognition he seems to have missed out on when the books were published and that will encourage a more major publisher to reprint his books.

HASH(0x97b045ac) out of 5 stars Noir and introspective thriller 14 Oct. 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I liked it, great read - hard to put down. I though t the play on music an attempt to catch the "cult" label. Dark and gloomy, but also exciting and believable. A tragedy after Kidd's Revengers.
