Description of this Book

Mulholland Books presents...GUN MACHINE This morning Detective John Tallow was bored with his job. Then there was this naked guy with a shotgun, and his partner getting killed, and now Tallow has a real problem: an apartment full of guns. Old guns. Modified guns. Arranged in rows and spirals on the floor and walls. Hundreds of them. Each weapon is tied to a single unsolved murder. Which means Tallow has uncovered two decades' worth of homicides that no one knew to connect and a killer unlike anything that came before. Tallow's bosses don't want him to solve the case. The murderer just wants him to die. But there's a pattern hiding behind the deaths, and if Tallow can figure it out he might even make it out alive.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Praise for Crooked Little Vein -- . 'Completely compulsive, impossible to put down' -- Globe and Mail 'Ellis is a formidable talent whose wit and insight fit perfectly into the crime genre.' -- Los Angeles Times 'Funny, inventive and blithely appalling, this book is Dante on paint fumes.' -- Joss Whedon 'A heart-shredding work of scatological brilliance that gleefully annihilates private-eye tropes and pole-vaults over taste lines' -- Los Angeles Times Book Review 'Ruthless, unforgiving, and oddly, beautifully, bitterly human... Get ready for a wonderful kick in the teeth' -- Brad Meltzer 'Stop it. You're frightening me.' -- William Gibson
