    Wilson is a loner and works for Paolo, an Italian mobster in Hamilton, ON, doing jobs that Paolo doesn t want to do and doesn t want any connection to Paolo asks Wilson to intercept a bag at the airport and give it to Julian, Paolo s right hand man Sounds like an easy job, right The next thing Wilson knows he s caught in the middle of a battle between the Italian mob and the Russian mob, and both want him dead He has to use all his experience and cunning to make sure he survives.This is the firs [...]

  2. Mark Zodda

    Enjoyable hard nosed crime fiction where the lead character is also a bad guy who commits crimes for money Lots of violence, but that s to be expected in this genre Looking forward to reading the next entry in this series.

  3. Lukasz Pruski

    The term action novel does not seem to be widely used, anyway not as widely as action movie Mike Knowles Darwin s Nightmare is almost a clinically pure action novel, which means that virtually the entire text describes action beating people up, getting beaten up, killing other people in order not to get killed by them, and performing various evasive maneuvers There is virtually nothing else in the book no characterizations and no psychological or sociological observations This may sound as if I [...]

    OK BUT I ve had this book sitting around for a while as I chose it in my quest to read crime novels by Canadian authors and with the bonus of the Hamilton setting I really wanted to like it but I ve been reluctant to start it as, after reading the synopsis, I had doubts about liking it Now I think those doubts have been realized Actually I think the book is quite well written, the story moves along quickly and smoothly and there is enough back story provided to describe and explain Wilson withou [...]

    When I read the jacket for Knowles most recent book where a reviewer compared his writing to Richard Stark and Andrew Vachss, two of my favorite writers, I was very excited So I went back to the beginning of the series with this, the first novel in the series, about the enigmatic loner and reluctant mob enforcer Wilson Fans of Stark s Parker or Vachss Burke series will feel right at home here as the hard boiled noir and clipped dialogue were a joy to read Wilson is dispatched to the airport to i [...]

    As the pages flip by, and bones break, and tendons rupture, and blood spurts, and bullets pierce flesh, the crunchy dialogue and pungent narrative drives Darwin s Nightmare to new heights of hard bitten cynicism Knowles world is one unrelieved by humour or compassion Wilson is a monster, but he has become one to survive the other, far worse monsters that populate his world This is kill or be killed, Darwin s theory put into brutal practice.Such tales of unrelieved pessimism can easily wear out t [...]

    Not only is the author from the city I come from, but the story is also It was fantastic reading a book, and knowing the neighborhoods being discussed That was a first for me.I loved the characters in this book I was anxious to keep reading until the end I just couldn t put the book down That good If you love a scary story with action, and some graphic parts, then grab a copy I am definitely putting this on my annual recommendation list

  8. Dave

    It was ok Kept my attention right the way through Unlikeable characters who blaze away at each other without a cop in sight May be worth reading another of Mr Knowles books

  9. John Paterson

    A violent and fast paced novel about organized crime, set in Hamilton, Ontario Must read other books by Mike Knowles.

  10. Simon

    A pretty good crime thriller, although the hero is a little too cool for school My only complaint is that the story s hero is a little cold blooded, especially with the high body count.

  11. Frances

    A bit didactic at times, and not a particularly sympathetic protagonist, which made it a bit less exciting than it could have been Still, solidly plotted, and decent pacing.
