About book: Manchette non mi ha mai deluso, finora, e non lo fa nemmeno questa volta. "Posizione di tiro" � un gran bel noir dal ritmo veloce che evoca moltissimo l'atmosfera francese, dove tutto � al posto giusto, i personaggi sono perfetti e la storia scorre come un orologio. Il killer di professione, freddo e preciso, diventa vittima degli eventi ed artefice del proprio destino, che sembra segnato fino dalle prime righe. Ma la trama � costruita con il tocco del maestro, e l'imprevisto ti porta per mano fino all'ultima splendida frase da cui � preso il titolo. Tra questo, "Fatale" e "Piccolo Blues" non saprei quale consigliare, perch� li ho trovati tutti splendidi. The Prone Gunman by Jean-Patrick Manchette:Violence just explodes, often unexpectedly. Terrier, the hired gunman in this slim book comes to see a woman he once had a relationship with years ago, and suddenly home invaders with past-unfinished business follow him. The invaders are brutal, taking care of the woman’s current boyfriend with economical thoroughness. The woman remarks, "I have never seen such people. Are you like them? Or not?", "I'm like them. Not only. But I'm like them." Terrier replies. There are no apologies. There is also not a very happy ending. A true Noir crime novel. Jean-Patrick Manchette was a talented writer who new what he was about. It’s a shame he died at only 53 years of age.

I wasn't blown away, but I might not have been in the mood for it. If you like noir, go for it.

Very dark and violent. Lots of fun and well, just ridiculous in parts. A great afternoon read.

Breathtakingly terrible. Wow. I don't know what else to say. So so bad.
