Re: RARA-AVIS: Recent reading

From: David Wright (

     The last really good hardboiled I read is Tom O'Neill's forthcoming "Shark Tank," a really good vigilante thriller about an ex-paramilitary, ex-lawyer who has been assassinating drug dealers and eluding capture by a FBI agent/poseur, when he decides to hang up his gun, and is at the same time rocketed to national fame by security camera coverage of a botched arms deal in a casino, where he saves a cop's life. Crisp, original writing, some very funny dialogue, and a cynical outlook that avoids being smug or clever. Check it out - it is due in July.
