Overview

Once he was a hero of the Great War, and then a member of the dreaded Black House. Now he is the criminal linchpin of Low Town. His name is Warden. He thought he had left the war behind him, but a summons from up above brings the past sharply, uncomfortably, back into focus. General Montgomery's daughter is missing somewhere in Low Town, searching for clues about her brother's murder. The General wants her found, before the stinking streets can lay claim to her, too. Dark, violent, and shot through with corruption, Tomorrow, The Killing is a fantastic successor to one of the most heralded fantasy debuts of recent times.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Scalpel-sharp banter worthy of fellow dark fantasists Scott Lynch and Joe Abercrombie. . . . An assured, roaring, and rollicking hybrid, a cross-genre free-for-all that relishes its tropes while spitting out their bones. And he does it all while spinning one hell of a gripping mystery. Much like its grim, perversely charismatic antihero, Low Town stakes a narrow turf—then completely owns every inch of it."  —A.V. Club on Low Town

"Polansky hits all the right notes in his intelligent first novel, a blend of dystopian fantasy and hard-boiled crime. . . . Sharp, noir-tinged dialogue and astute insights into class struggle mark Polansky as a writer with a future."  —Publishers Weekly, on Low Town

"A strong, confident debut . . . I'm definitely keeping an eye out for whatever Daniel Polansky comes up with next."  —Tor.com
