Praise
"Mr. Hobbs...seizes our attention and holds it tight, not so much through his plotting or his characters but through his sheer, masterly use of details, and the authoritative, hard-boiled voice he has fashioned for Jack....This is the debut of a gifted crime writer who will only get better with his next endeavors."
From the Publisher
Editors Note The sensation of the 2011 Frankfurt Book Fair: a stunningly dark first novel that is sure to become a major publishing event.When a casino robbery in Atlantic City goes horribly awry the man who orchestrated it is obliged to call in a favor from "Jack." Only thirty or so people are sure this man exists, some believe he's dead, and none know anything at all about his true identity. Those are closely guarded trade secrets, to say the least, for an exceptionally trained, experienced, and talented criminal. But as he struggles to clean up the mess left in the wake of the bungled Atlantic City heist, he finds himself increasingly more visible as he's pursued simultaneously by the FBI and other interested, if mysteriously elusive, parties--a situation that requires every gram of his skill, ingenuity, and self-protective instincts, especially when offense and defense become meaningless terms. From its opening pages, Ghostman effortlessly pulls the reader into Jack's refined and peculiar world--and the sophisticated shadowboxing only grows more powerfully intense as the novel moves toward its inexorable conclusion.
Editors Note 1 A casino robbery gone wrong compels its orchestrator to call in a favor from a master criminal known only as "Jack," whose activities are subject to mystery and speculation and who must test the limits of his considerable skills in order to protect his anonymity from a closely pursuing FBI. A first novel. 150,000 first printing.
