Nic Pizzolatto was a fiction finalist for the National Magazine Award, and his story collection, Between Here and the Yellow Sea, was long-listed for the Frank O'Connor Award for Short Fiction. His story "The Guild of Thieves" was the Honorable Mention for the 2007 Pushcart Prize, and George Pelecanos selected his "Wanted Man" for inclusion in the Best American Mystery Stories 2009. Now Pizzolatto expands his talents to novel-length noir, telling the story of an ex-con running for his life-in more ways than one.On the same day Roy Cady is diagnosed with a terminal illness, he learns that his employer has put a hit out on him. After narrowly escaping an attempt on his life, Cady goes on the run with a young prostitute named Rocky and her three-year-old sister, from New Orleans to Galveston, Texas. But though they run, they cannot hide in this explosive, atmospheric, impossible-to-put-down thrill ride.

About the Author:

Nic Pizzolatto's fiction has appeared in the Atlantic, the Oxford American, the Missouri Review, the Iowa Review, Best American Mystery Stories, and other publications. He has been a finalist for the National Magazine Award, and his story collection Between Here and the Yellow Sea was named by Poets & Writers Magazine one of the top five fiction debuts of the year. Nic lives in Indiana. Audiobook veteran and AudioFile Earphones Award winner Michael Kramer has recorded more than two hundred audiobooks for trade publishers and many more for the Library of Congress Talking Books program. His audiobooks include North and South by John Jakes, and a number of other Jakes titles; capers and mysteries by Donald E. Westlake (a.k.a. Richard Stark), including Money for Nothing; and Robert Jordan's fantasy-adventure fiction. In addition, Michael received Audie Award nominations for The Gathering Storm by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson and Dead Aim by Thomas Perry, and a Publishers Weekly Listen-Up Award for Savages by Don Winslow.

From AudioFile:

Michael Kramer narrates in a flat, remote tone, a clear decision on his part to emphasize the noirish tone of Pizzolatto's novel about a hard man who unexpectedly finds himself with altruistic feelings toward a troubled young woman. And certainly no one can fault Kramer for that choice--or with anything at all about his intelligent and nuanced performance. The question is really larger than the performance, and that is whether noir has reached the point of cliché. That, of course, is a personal choice. If yes, then Kramer's detached air will be immediately grating. If no, then sit back and enjoy a gifted actor. M.O. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine

Descrizione libro Little, Brown Book Group, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Repr.. Language: English . Brand New Book. From the creator of the hit HBO series True Detective comes a powerful, gleaming-dark thriller rich with Southern atmosphere. Roy Cady is by his own admission a bad man . With a snow flurry of cancer in his lungs and no one to live for, he s a walking time-bomb of violence. Following a fling with his boss s lover, he s sent on a routine assignment he knows is a death trap. Yet after a smoking spasm of violence, Roy s would-be killers are mostly dead and he is mostly alive. Before Roy makes his getaway, he finds a beaten-up woman in the apartment, and sees something in her frightened, defiant eyes that causes a crucial decision. He takes her with him on the run from New Orleans to Galveston, Texas, permanently entwining their fate along a highway of seedy bars and fleabag hotels, a world of treacherous drifters, pick-up trucks, and ashed-out hopes, with death just a car-length behind. Nic Pizzolatto s highly acclaimed, Edgar Award-nominated thriller announces the arrival of a major new talent for fans of Dennis Lehane, James Lee Burke and Breaking Bad.
