Tomorrow, the Killing Paperback
Part of the Low Town series
Dark, violent, and shot through with corruption, TOMORROW, THE KILLING is a fantastic successor to THE STRAIGHT RAZOR CURE, one of the most heralded fantasy debuts of recent times. Once he was a hero of the Great War, and then a member of the dreaded Black House.
Now he is the criminal linchpin of Low Town. His name is Warden. He thought he had left the war behind him, but a summons from up above brings the past sharply, uncomfortably, back into focus.
General Montgomery's daughter is missing somewhere in Low Town, searching for clues about her brother's murder.
The general wants her found, before the stinking streets can lay claim to her, too. TOMORROW, THE KILLING was chosen as one of the best novels of 2012 by Forbidden Planet, Fantasy Faction, The Founding Fields and A Fantastical Librarian.

Review by wyvernfriend
There were times when I didn't quite care enough and where the past and the present stories got muddied a bit too much, I could see what the author was doing but in some ways it interfered with my enjoyment of the story. On the other hand seeing how Warden came to be the man he is now is interesting.It's a story with a lot of twists and turns and a lot of layers. Warden thinks he's clever but many other players are also being involved, Warden has the advantage that several of the players want to keep him stirring things up.Interesting, I'm curious where the story is going to go from now.

A great followup. A tighter plot. The writing is top notch as in the first novel. The novel alternates between the war and the events in Low Town.Noir and Fantasy work really well once again.The warden is a fine anti hero.
