Jimmy Luntz is an innocent man, more or less. He's just leaving a barbershop chorus contest in Bakersfield, California, thinking about placing a few bets at the track, when he gets picked up by a thug named Gambol and his life takes a calamitous turn. Turns out Jimmy owes Gambol's boss significant money, and Gambol's been known to do serious harm to his charges. Soon enough a gun comes out, and Jimmy's on the run. While in hiding he meets up with a vengeful, often-drunk bombshell named Anita, and the two of them go on the lam together, attracting every kind of trouble.

From the National Book Award-winning author Denis Johnson comes Nobody Move: "does exactly what noir should do--propel the reader downhill, with its cast of losers, louts and toughs as they cheat, shoot, and exploit one another into fast-talking oblivion" (Jess Walker, The Boston Globe).

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. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
