Tenth Anniversary Edition to be published by Hot Key Books (7th July 2014)
Republished to mark its tenth anniversary, a bold, chilling thriller from the author of THE SAVAGES
On the streets of Medellín, Columbia, actions speak louder than words, and the rule of the bandidos is the only law worth listening to. Like most kids of their age, Shorty and Alberto work for their local cartel. They run cigarettes, offer protection . . . and occasionally assassinate someone.
The work is tough, and dangerous, but the boys are commanding respect like they've never known, and the money's pretty good too. But then one day Alberto disappears. And Shorty realises that he is never coming back. A gangster's life is cheap, and when revenge can be bought for only a few pesos, everyone has their price . . .
Praise for BOY KILLS MAN:
“Excellent.....Sonny is a bit like Henry Hill in Martin Scorsese's GOODFELLAS.”
“...unputdownable and unforgettable”
“Just occasionally a novel hits you with such force that it takes a while for what you've read to sink in. The storyline permeates your every pore, you think over and over again about the characters. BOY KILLS MAN is such a book.....A powerful novel, thought provoking and shocking.”
