Meet Bobby Gold; by night, the security chief of a mobbed-up New York City nightclub, by day, a reluctant bone-breaker and enforcer for Eddie Fish - his old college roommate, and best friend. Emerging from the 'gladiator school' environment of an upstate prison with an imposing physique and a reputation for skilled brutality, Bobby's a lonely, guilt-ridden child inside a hulking body. He views the grim work of coercion, assault and even murder as jobs to be done with a craftsman's work ethic and with a minimum of force. Following on from his two superb novels, Bone in the Throat and Gone Bamboo, Anthony Bourdain has produced another stunning piece of crime fiction.

Reviews

* Gangster fiction to feast on. Independent * Bourdain's dialogue-driven action proves completely absorbing ... Like a good meal, the memory of Gone Bamboo will linger on. The List * A slick, very funny, brilliantly written crime thriller, very much in the style of the superb Carl Hiassen, Gone Bamboo is one of the essential reads of the year. GO * Reads like Carl Hiaasen on holiday with Elmore Leonard and goes out with a bang like a tequila slammer. The Times
