Muscle, Paperback / softback Book


LONGLISTED FOR THE EDINBURGH FESTIVAL FIRST BOOK AWARDIn a hard-boiled city of crooks, grifts and rackets lurk a pair of toughs: Box and _____.

They're the kind of men capable of extracting apologies and reparations, of teaching you a chilling lesson.

They seldom think twice, and ask very few questions. Until one night over the poker table, they encounter a pulp writer with wild ideas and an unscrupulous private detective, leading them into what is either a classic mystery, a senseless maze of corpses, or an inextricable fever dream . . . Drunk on cinematic and literary influence, Muscle is a slice of noir fiction in collapse, a ceaselessly imaginative story of violence, boredom and madness.
