Tower: A Novel Kindle Edition
"Tower goes off like a slo-mo explosion, a raging blast of white-heat light. It's a compelling study of pathologies, and style, and friendship and fate. Fuelled by tenderness and murderous hate, it's as tender as it is brutal, tender as a savage wound, ragged and raw. Here be monsters, crippled monsters: Nicky and Todd are the truest angels and demons of our mean streets I've read for some time. Be afraid." --Declan Burke, author of The Big O
"Tower is spare, powerful, surprisingly tender. And as seamless a piece of two-author writing as you'll ever find." --S. J. Rozan, Edgar Award-winning author of The Shanghai Moon --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Without ruining the story, per a short summary of a relatively short book, it covers a brief period in the early adult life of two guys raised in Brooklyn when they both were getting into some illegal activities. To even discuss the approach the authors took in writing the book could spoil some of the subtle twists in it.
I've had difficulty getting into almost every book I've read written by Ken Bruen. This was no exception; however, as with the others, that changes quickly. Once I got into it, the story moved very quickly and I had difficulty putting it down. My reading enjoyment had one major exception which was the graphic detail about a murder (something I try to avoid in selecting novels). That was a very minor part of the book and it may well have added to the importance of the events that followed . My tendency also is to avoid prologues, but for some reason I read this one and it did add to the intrigue.
If you enjoy books by either of these authors and/or if you enjoy "crime novels" in general, I'd recommend this one. I must conclude here by saying that every time I read a book by one of these two guys, I am left with the thought: " there are those with true talent; then, there's the rest of us"...
