The author of Blitz and the Jack Taylor novels delivers a “fast-paced, tough and explosive” tale of a killer couple (The Irish Times).
Cooper likes Ed McBain novels, action movies, and robbing banks. Released from prison, he’s back on the outside, and in business with another former con. They call themselves “Righteous Repo.” It’s so legit they even have an accountant. It’s decent work, but not as lucrative as the bank jobs they still pull on the side. Not as stimulating, either. But nothing gets Cooper’s blood pumping faster than Cassie—an easy, all-American beauty with a bent for metaphysics, Irish poets, and taking risks.
Cassie’s also a professional shoplifter, slumming at a low-end South London shop when Cooper first lays eyes on her. After a single hookup comes the catch: Now that Cooper’s had her, he’s not allowed to touch another woman. He thinks she’s quite a joker until he wakes up and finds Cassie’s note. She drugged him, stole his pistol and his cash, and left him with another warning: She’s not through with him. Not by a long shot. Only death will keep her away, so death it must be. Cooper and Cassie are made for each other.
From the award-winning author of the Jack Taylor novels, Her Last Call to Louis MacNeice delivers “pulp with an A level” (The Guardian), once again confirming Bruen as “the crime novelist to read” (George Pelacanos).
