Reviews

Indianapolis PI Frank Behr juggles two cases in Levien's disjointed follow-up to City of the Sun. When Behr's Brazilian jujitsu instructor is shot to death execution-style at the Brazilian's martial arts studio, he decides to investigate unofficially. A real job soon comes Behr's way when a high-powered PI firm asks him to track down two of their missing investigators, who disappeared in the middle of a case involving derelict properties being used for illegal gambling dens. In taking a close look at the gaming dens, Behr comes face to face with a family of thugs who have launched a turf war to secure a monopoly on neighborhood crime. Despite the book's hefty body count, Levien is more interested in exploring the nature of violence, contrasting the controlled beauty of jujitsu with the unpredictable dangers of gunfights. While readers will admire Behr's determination to solve his friend's murder, some may feel that case distracts too much from his formal assignment. (July) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

"Levien is the new must-read thriller writer" LEE CHILD "Levien's writing shines in his depiction of the bad guys. They don't come to life so much as walk in your front door, sit down on the edge of your bed, and put a gun to your head... Where the Dead Lay delivers on all counts. It is crime fiction at its finest" CHRISTOPHER REICH "David Levien has placed himself among the best writers in the field" ROBERT CRAIS
