Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Scott Brick brings the perfect tone to Epperson's noir tale of mobsters, molls and murder in 1930s Los Angeles. 'Two Gun' Danny Layton is literally a man without a past: an amnesic and reluctant gangster, he can't figure out how he came to work for psychotic crime boss Bud 'The Kind One' Seitz — or how he fell in love with Bud's girl, Darla. Brick brings a subdued sense of melancholy to his portrayal of Layton, capturing the amnesiac's conflict between what he thinks he knows and what he feels. Weaving world-weariness into each character's voice, he brilliantly recreates the shadowy glamour of Depression-era Los Angeles. A Five Star hardcover (Reviews, Oct. 1)." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

"Tense, emotional, and unforgiving, Tom Epperson's The Kind One is a beautifully written take on the dark Hollywood of the '30s--a perfect noir novel that is pure and original, with a heavy heart that beats through each page." --Robert Crais, New York Times bestselling author.
