A BOOKLIST BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR * FINALIST FOR THE HAMMETT PRIZE Three generations torn apart--by bullets fired fifty years ago.

Philadelphia, 1965: Two street cops--one black, one white--are gunned down in a corner bar. One of the fallen officers, Stan Walczak, leaves behind a 12-year-old boy, Jimmy.

Philadelphia, 1995: Homicide detective Jim Walczak learns that his father's alleged killer, Terrill Lee Stanton, has been sprung from prison. Jim stalks the ex-con, hoping to finally learn the truth.

Philadelphia, 2015: Jim's daughter Audrey, a forensic science student, re-opens her grandfather's murder for a research paper. But as Audrey digs deeper, she comes to realize that Stanton probably didn't pull the trigger--and her father may have made a horrible mistake...

About the Author:

Duane Swierczynski is the Edgar-nominated author of nine novels including Canary, Severance Package, and the Shamus Award-winning Charlie Hardie series (Fun and Games, Hell and Gone, Point and Shoot). He's written over 250 comics for Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, Valiant and IDW, and most recently wrote The Black Hood, the first comic for Archie's new Dark Circle imprint. Swierczynski has also collaborated with CSI creator Anthony E. Zuiker on the bestselling Level 26 series. He lives in Burbank with his wife and children.

Review:

"Impressive, intricately constructed . . . Well sequenced to maximize suspense . . . A twist-filled saga of family loyalties and civic corruption . . . Mr. Swierczynski's innovative, life-affirming novel also affords the traditional pleasures of a police procedural, including humor."―Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal

"This is the first novel I've read by [Duane Swierczynski] and as soon as I finished it I went back and read three more by him. . . . Fast-moving . . . This book illuminates race relations in the '60s in Philadelphia and in the country at large."―Nancy Pearl, NPR

"Swierczynski just gets better and better . . . [A] bleak, powerful tale of corruption and the lasting effects of crime . . . Swierczynski's riskiest move yet [is] a resounding success, with each story line featuring full-blooded characters and intrigue that works both in its own right and in the larger context."―Booklist (starred review)

"[A] complex whodunit... Well-defined characters and a clever mystery... Swierczynski skillfully juggles three interrelated plot lines."―Publishers Weekly

"Ambitious... This novel is dotted with fine details."―Kirkus Reviews

"Epic in scope... [and] keep[s] the reader ripping through pages. Revolver may very well be Swierczynski's strongest novel to date--and one of my favorites of 2016, so far--at least until he releases the next one."―LitReactor.com

"Though the multigenerational saga encompasses many decades, reaching all the way back to 1933, Swierczynski's snappy dialogue, athletic pacing and cliffhanger chapter endings make this a tight read. It contains the author's characteristic sense of humor but is also affecting with precise prose."―Shelf Awareness

"If you're looking for a good crime novel for your summer, this is a perfect choice... [Revolver is] gritty and gripping!"―BookRiot.com
