Product description

The room is full of guns. Old ones. New ones. Modified ones. Hundreds of them. This is a collection belonging to someone who's been killing a long time. Secretly. And very, very effectively. This is the impossible case that New York detective John Tallow has to solve, before the killer catches up with him. This is GUN MACHINE: a crime novel like none you've read before.

Review quote

A magnificently entertaining gun held to the head of the crime thriller genre Guardian GUN MACHINE sees Ellis grab hold of the mainstream by its windpipe and demand acceptance; a perfectly flawless crime book with a feral glint in its eye. Independent on Sunday If only other police procedurals had half the gumption and imaginative power of this novel Big Issue A dazzling oasis in the desert of grimly identical police procedurals Financial Times Sick, slick and very funny...[Ellis] doesn't need pictures to create his gripping, grave new world Daily Telegraph [Ellis] turns to conventional crime fiction with startling success...powerful writing and vast imagination The Times Ellis tackles the police procedural, although it's bloodier and more intriguing than any episode of Law & Order or CSI, and arms it with gallows humor, high-tension action scenes and an unlikely hero USA Today Just about everything in GUN MACHINE, Warren Ellis's dark but pleasingly quirky crime thriller, is a little bit off, not quite what you'd expect...In his way Tallow is almost as weird as the hunter, and yet he's also oddly endearing, so single-minded you can't help rooting for him. New York Times Never stops to draw breath. It's a monster of a book, bowel-looseningly scary in places, darkly uproarious in others, and remorseless as the killer who hunts in its pages...particularly good, even by the high standards of a Warren Ellis tale -- Cory Doctorow Boing Boing
