I'm not usually one for police procedurals but Warren Ellis brings his unique brand of weirdness to GUN MACHINE. I liked this a lot more than his previous novel, CROOKED LITTLE VEIN, and the mystery of who the killer is and what his MO is kept me turning pages.

Warren Ellis is a superb comic book writer and knows how to create prose that sticks pokes you in the ribs like a dagger. "Gun Machine" has many of his hallmarks, a frustrated and cynical protagonist, a group of oddly endearing supporting characters and horrible people doing horrible things for unusual reasons. While the set-up is interesting, the reveal of the story is a bit too coincidental, a few too many people show up at just the right time with just the right information and characters go off on long'ish expositional monologues to a leading character they've just met and have little reason to talk so openly to. It doesn't kill the book but it certainly lessens the impact of what is a very clever idea for a story. Ellis's flair for prose is in full bloom. If only the plot were just as ripe.

I'm a fan of Ellis already, and glad to have read this. Much milder than Crooked Little Vein, but I found the characters much more developed.
