From the National Book Award–winning, bestselling author of Tree of Smoke comes a provocative thriller set in the American West. Nobody Move, which first appeared in the pages of Playboy, is the story of an assortment of lowlifes in Bakersfield, California, and their cat-and-mouse game over $2.3 million. Touched by echoes of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett, Nobody Move is at once an homage to and a variation on literary form. It salutes one of our most enduring and popular genres―the American crime novel―but with a grisly humor and outrageousness that are Denis Johnson's own. Sexy, suspenseful, and above all entertaining, Nobody Move shows one of our greatest novelists at his versatile best.

About the Author:

Denis Johnson (1949-2017) is the author of eight novels, one novella, one book of short stories, three collections of poetry, two collections of plays, and one book of reportage. His novel Tree of Smoke won the 2007 National Book Award.

From AudioFile:

There's no shortage of tough guys and girls in Denis Johnson's NOBODY MOVE. There's also no real hero in the book, just bad guys and worse ones, all of them pretty interesting. Will Patton gives real character to all the players, especially the protagonist, a gambling-addicted singer in a barbershop choir named Johnny Lutz. The guy has no idea how much trouble he's in until the cold-blooded enforcer, Ernest Gambol, takes him for a one-way ride into the California countryside. Patton's Gambol is seriously sinister--you can almost hear creepy music in the background. Throw in a beautiful woman, $2.3 million, blood, guns, and revenge--and you've got a contemporary crime noir masterpiece. Patton and Johnson make it all seem brand new. M.S.
