Gun, with occasional music
Jonathan Lethem
Adult Fiction LETHEM

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Lethem's first novel is a work of noir science fiction inhabited by animal gangsters and a gritty futuristic P.I. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

Private detective Conrad Metcalf finds himself the victim of an official inquisition when the murder of a former client and an obvious cover-up attempt lead him into dangerous political territory. Set in a near-future where only police and detectives are licensed to ask questions and where drugs to suppress memory are commonplace, this first novel imparts a new meaning to the word mystery . Spare prose and tight plotting create a taut sf thriller that should appeal to both sf and mystery fans. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
