Overview

A hilarious crime thriller by Anthony Bourdain, the New York Times bestselling author of Kitchen Confidential and host of Parts Unknown on CNN.

CIA-trained assassin Henry Denard is looking for the good life when he retires with his wife, Frances, to the Caribbean. He may have botched his last job a little—allowed Donnie Wicks, the guy Jimmy Pazz hired him to kill, to escape with his life—but Henry and Frances are determined to take it easy.

That is until Donnie agrees to testify against Jimmy Pazz, and gets relocated by the Federal Witness Protection Program to Saint Martin as well. Now Jimmy Pazz is after both men—the mobster, and the man who was supposed to kill him—and things in Henry's paradise are about to get a lot more complicated.

Written in Anthony Bourdain's signature style-raucous, funny, a bit vicious, and always fun-Gone Bamboo is a feast of murder, hitmen, and the hitwomen they love.
