Product Details


“With Fire in the Blood’s close observations of the psychology of men and violence, of the wide gulfs between New York City’s social classes that can shrink to nothing in an instant, and its brilliant inversion of the classic mystery plot, Perry O’Brien has written a tremendously compelling debut of rare skill.”—Phil Klay, author of Redeployment, winner of the National Book Award

“Perry O’Brien’s Fire in the Blood is the opening blast of what I expect will be a long, strong career in American fiction. Through all the twists and turns of this riveting, fast-paced novel, O’Brien’s sure grasp of human experience never falters. It’s all here, the heartbreak and hoping, the fear and confusion, the rare moments of mercy and meaning. A powerful debut, and a harbinger of more good things to come.”—Ben Fountain, author of Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award

“Before you read Fire in the Blood—Perry O’Brien’s tightly woven, fast-paced novel of crime and revenge—let me warn you that at some point you will not only wish you had written it, but also that you had the money to buy the film rights. It is that damn good.”—Donald Ray Pollock, author of The Heavenly Table and The Devil All the Time
