Detective Miles Jensen is called to the lawless town of Santa Mondega to investigate a spate of murders. This would all be quite ordinary in those rough streets, except that Jensen is the Chief Detective of Supernatural Investigations.The breakneck plot centres around a mysterious blue stone - 'The Eye of the Moon' - and the men (and women) who all want to get their hands on it: a mass murderer with a drink problem, a hit man who thinks he's Elvis, and a pair of monks among them. Add in the local crime baron, an amnesiac woman who's just emerged from a five-year coma, a gypsy fortune-teller and a hapless hotel porter, and the plot thickens fast.

I admit I was a bit intrigued by a book that is written by an anonymous author. Did they not want their name on it because it was that bad, or some other reason? I decided I had to find out, since even the plot description made me interested in reading it. I was not disappointed. The story brings us to Santa Mondega, and introduces a character Miles Jensen, who is a specially appointed office to the SMPD. Specially Appointed, as he deals with the more paranormal sort of things for the government. While on this particular case, he is trying to solve several murders that are related to the theft of the Eye of the Moon, a special gem said to have certain mystical properties. To add to the suspense, and eclipse, centered over Santa Mondega, could be halted causing constant darkness over the town if the gem finds its way into the wrong hands. The Bourbon Kid is a serial murderer from five years earlier, when the Eye was stolen previously, and is blamed for the murders cropping up in the current day.

Definitely a dark, humorous read. Though at times I felt it dragged a bit, trying to keep up with some of the multiple plot lines going on. Everything does sort of tie-in together at the end, leaving the reader with the good sense of the good guys winning, and the bad guys losing. Twist in a few angels, vampires, a few other paranormal types, and a gun-toting serial killer, it makes for a gritty action read. ( )

> Vous aimez les films de Tarantino ? Les romans noirs ? L'ironie mordante et l'humour au troisième degré ? Ce livre est pour vous !
Aux dernières nouvelles, son auteur n'est toujours pas démasqué. --Le Livre de Poche

> Un serial killer surnommé le Bourbon Kid, un chasseur de primes sosie d’Elvis, une bimbo amnésique, des moines experts en arts martiaux ou un couple de flics cinéphiles, tels sont les personnages hauts en couleur et totalement stéréotypés de ce roman. Ajoutez à cela une pierre précieuse au pouvoir étrange, un livre sans nom qui décime ses lecteurs, des situations toujours plus délirantes les unes que les autres, sans oublier les bains de sang, et vous obtiendrez le ton déjanté du Livre sans nom. Bas le temps de respirer, le rythme s’enchaîne à toute allure et on en redemande !
Véritable réference à la culture pop, aux comics, à la musique et au cinéma, ce roman inclassable est déjà un livre culte ! --Raphaël Panarisi, Librairie Chapitre.com à Saint-Étienne (42)

Ce livre d'un auteur anonyme est un roman jubilatoire, bourré de personnages déjantés et de références cinématographiques, qui procure une plaisir intense, un peu comme peut le faire la vision d'un film de Quentin Tarantino. Le lien est même plus large puisque l'univers de truands pas toujours des plus intelligents rappelle les héros des films de ce dernier. Il est étonnant qu'aucun éditeur n'ait senti le potentiel de ce livre, forçant l'auteur à utiliser une plateforme d'auto-édition, avant qu'enfin un éditeur anglais se saisisse de l'occasion. Les derniers mots du livre laissent présager d'une suite, tous les lecteurs doivent l'attendre de pied ferme ! ( )

Amateur de films de série B, vampires, policiers, thriller, surnaturel; inconditionnels des films de Tarantino, ce livre est pour vous sinon passez votre lecture.
Ce roman loufoque mais bien écrit, sans description inutile ni digression, respecte l'unité de lieu, de temps et d'action, comme au théâtre, et comme au théâtre nous sommes les spectateurs d'un drame qui relient des personnages impossibles : Bourbon le kid, bon ou méchant qui massacre tout le monde après ingestion d'un verre de Bourbon , les inspecteurs Somers et Jensen qui essaient de le capturer, des tueurs à gage et des moines adeptes de kun fu qui tentent de récupérer une pierre précieuse, un gentille petit couple (un peu escrocs quand même) qui surnagent dans cette ville impossible de Santa Mondega où se situent les actions. Ah oui j'oubliais les vampires mais il y a pire encore.
Un bon roman d'été où l'on "ne se prend pas la tête" mais attention de ne pas la perdre accrochée au plafond ou à une patère ou à une porte .............. ( )

READ IN DUTCH

The book with no name; Author: Anonymous. How useful in a bookshop?!

Weird, absurd, this can't be true. Several of my thoughts while reading this book. Because it is weird and absurd. It truly is. But, on the other hand, it is also intriguing. And I have to admit that I really liked it.

It's - I think - quite safe to say that this is a parody on almost all popular genres today. There is detective/thriller, saving the world, mysterious vampire-like creatures, etc. all in a Western setting. One of the better parodies I've read.

And, I recently found out this apparently is a series (The Bourbon Kid), so now I'm going to search for book #2 The Eye of the Moon... ( )
