When Mitchell is released from prison after serving three years for a vicious attack he doesn't even remember, Billy Norton is there to pick him up. But Norton works for Tommy Logan, a ruthless loan shark lowlife with plans Mitchell wants nothing to do with. Attempting to stay out of Logan's way, he finds work at the Holland Park mansion of faded movie actress, Lillian Palmer, where he has to deal with her mysterious butler, Jordan. It isn't long before Mitchell's violent past catches up with him and people start getting hurt. When his disturbed sister Briony is threatened, Mitchell is forced to act. Academy Award-winning screenwriter William Monahan ( The Departed ) has teamed with Quentin Curtis to acquire rights to London Boulevard . Monahan plans to co-produce, write, and make his directorial debut with the movie. This is a masterful work of double dealing and suspense from one of the great crime writers of our time.

Bruen at his best. Noir at its best. Fast paced an with unforeseen curve at the end. Highly must read author.

Fast-paced and gritty. A quick, compelling read that's accessible to an American audience despite the use of British colloquialisms.

Mitchell works as a loan-shark enforcer - mean and merciless. But he has also, unexpectedly, fallen in love. But Mitchell can never truly escape his violent past or the dangerous world of loan sharks, druggies, and other bottom feeders. Staccato prose and hard-edged dialogue, gritty realism and a terrifying look at London’s dark underbelly. This one packs one hell of a powerful punch.
