What People Are Saying About Vinnie’s Head
“For those of us who like our crime writing with a dose of dark humor, Vinnie’s Head is the ticket. Great characters, pace, style, and story—Marc Lecard has chops!”
— CHRISTOPHER MOORE, NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF A DIRTY JOB
“Alfredo Garcia has nothing on Vinnie McCloskey-Schmidt. But the head we need concern ourselves with sits atop Marc Lecard’s neck—it teems with gruesome and unsettling things which he is able, like a literary Chas Addams, to spill constructively onto the page. VINNIE’S HEAD is the most entertaining crime novel I’ve read in a long time.”
— SCOTT PHILLIPS, BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE ICE HARVEST
“I loved this book and if you wanted a blend of BRING ME THE HEAD OF HEAD OF ALFREDO GARCIA… and THE SOPRANOS… but with dazzling writing and mesmerizing characters… this book is it and so much much more, a dark diamond of that rarity… sheer readability… you don’t realize how well crafted the writing is till you’ve read the novel in one straight sitting… debuts don’t come any better than this.”
— KEN BRUEN, SHAMUS AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR OF THE GUARDS
