9781841953274: Bobby Gold

Ten slices from the life of Bobby Gold; by night, the security chief of a mobbed-up New York City nightclub, by day, a reluctant bonebreaker and enforcer for Eddie Fish - his old college roommate, and best friend. Emerging from the "gladiator school" environment of an upstate prison with an imposing physique and a reputation for skilled brutality, Bobby's a lonely, guilt-ridden child inside a hulking body. He views the grim work of coercion, assault and even murder as jobs to be done with a craftsman's work ethic and with a minimum of force. However, the technician's pride in a job done well is failing him, his friend and protector Eddie is getting flakier and flakier and worst of all, he's falling in love with Nicole, a reckless and self-destructive female line-cook who"s been around the block a few times. Following on from his two superb novels, Bone in the Throat and Gone Bamboo, Anthony Bourdain has produced another stunning book of crime fiction.

Review:

Gangster fiction to feast on. * Independent * Bourdain's dialogue-driven action proves completely absorbing ... Like a good meal, the memory of Gone Bamboo will linger on. * The List * A slick, very funny, brilliantly written crime thriller, very much in the style of the superb Carl Hiassen, Gone Bamboo is one of the essential reads of the year. * GO * Reads like Carl Hiaasen on holiday with Elmore Leonard and goes out with a bang like a tequila slammer. * The Times *
