Library Journal - Library Journal
``Killing is not the most brutal thing men do their fellow creatures,'' a father inscribes on the flyleaf of an edition of Audubon's prints. He presents the book to his young son, who later determines to steal the original folios from Audubon House in Key West, assisted by a gang of losers, dreamers, and sociopaths. Criminal Tendencies is filled with fierce surprises and unexpected terrors. It takes the reader on a nightmare ride down a very dark street, a journey at once comic and horrific. Caught up in dreams of making it but possessing none of the resources necessary for success, the characters scavenge on each other. O'Rourtke writes rings around most authorswitness the steamy sex and drug scenes, the descriptions of the overheated Key West ambience. Outstanding.
