The Long Slide

( 2 )

Overview

"Dazzling debuts are rare as stardust. And phew-oh, The Long Slide is glittering, one of those novels I'd like to quote whole chunks of. Here are two of my favourite lines: There were two kinds of drunks, the ones who needed another beer to keep settled and the ones who used that extra beer to get unsettled. I was always the former. And, A bitterer pill was never swallowed in the name of pride…. And that's just in the first ten pages! The Long Slide is a blast of sheer nitro-plotting with a narrator who's so full on, you feel you've known him

Overview

"Dazzling debuts are rare as stardust. And phew-oh, The Long Slide is glittering, one of those novels I'd like to quote whole chunks of. Here are two of my favourite lines: There were two kinds of drunks, the ones who needed another beer to keep settled and the ones who used that extra beer to get unsettled. I was always the former. And, A bitterer pill was never swallowed in the name of pride…. And that's just in the first ten pages! The Long Slide is a blast of sheer nitro-plotting with a narrator who's so full on, you feel you've known him always. This novel announces a huge new voice; it's a book that's going to be on everyone's list by the end of the year."
--Ken Bruen, author of The Guards, Once Were Cops, and London Boulevard

"Clever, smart, cynical dialogue...narrative I'd give an arm to be able to write.... The Long Slide is a wild ride through the new wild, wild west with gunfights, open mine shafts, a dame to kill (or be killed) for and one man's journey back to himself and trout fishing. An excellent debut."
--Charlie Stella, author of Jimmy Bench-Press, Shakedown, and Mafiya

The Long Slide is a crime novel set in the new, roadside West, where bison graze alongside billboards of bison and even accountants pack heat. Henry Gavin, the narrator, is a bamboo fly rod aficionado and editor of the Copper Falls Gazette, the only newspaper in a dying, Colorado mining town. Copper, the town's last best resource, is also its curse. The land and its waters are beautiful, but deadly.
