REVIEWS - Killing Time in Vegas


KILLING TIME IN VEGAS - my collected American-set short stories - is totting up some nice reviews about town.

This anthology first appeared all over the shop in such exalted tomes as Out of the Gutter, Plots With Guns and Thug.lit among others so it's great to see them attracting a whole new set of readers and reviewers.

Big Al's Books and Pals were first up to bat for the book:

"For me the sign of a good writer is being able to tell a strong story with a minimum of words - Tony Black delivers both in spades with yet more of the highest quality writing. The sense of place is excellent, the dialogue sharp & the characters very visible."

The ever-excellent CrimeSquad dished out five-stars:

"It is very rare that you will encounter such tight prose, strong narrative and pitch perfect dialogue in so many offerings from the one author. Each tale grabbed me and held me tight until the next one laid its paws on me."

The last review in this round comes from I Meant To Read That, and it's a corker:


"There's a great variety in the stories beginning with the eponymous story of this fine collection which clearly signals that these aren't going to be stories about stereotypical villains . . . Black travels seamlessly from the mean streets of Edinburgh via Miami to Sin City itself, changing his cigarette brands and accent as he goes. Same high standard, same brilliant writing."
