Gun Machine

by Warren Ellis

Little, Brown And Company | January 14, 2014 | Trade Paperback

Gun Machine is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
The bestselling thriller from "a seriously good writer with a seriously wicked imagination" (New York Times Book Review).

After a shootout claims the life of his partner in a condemned tenement building on Pearl Street, Detective John Tallow unwittingly stumbles across an apartment stacked high with guns. When examined, each weapon leads to a different, previously unsolved murder.

Confronted with the sudden emergence of hundreds of unsolved homicides, Tallow discovers that he''s walked into a veritable deal with the devil. An unholy bargain that has made possible the rise of some of Manhattan''s most prominent captains of industry. A hunter who performs his deadly acts as a sacrifice to the old gods of Manhattan and who may, quite simply, be the most prolific murderer in New York City''s history.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A New York of many fictions This book isn't as hilarious or as profane as the author's previous, "Crooked Little Vein", but it has a tight, dark core of plot that actually makes sense and a main character who suffers hard and makes us care. It also has the vivid imagery I've come to expect from Ellis, with his graphic novel background. It goes a bit off the rails with some weird meta-history but it all makes sense in the end. Read it with a stiff drink at hand.
