Jimmy Luntz has fallen behind on his gambling debts. A small-time crook from Bakersfield, California, he isn’t too worried, until Ernst Gambol comes to collect. When Jimmy runsand he doesa dangerous game of cat and mouse pits him against both Gambol and his vindictive boss, Juarez. The more Jimmy tries to escape, the more desperate he becomes . . . and then he meets Anita. A tough con artist who’s been accused of embezzling a couple million dollars, Anita claims she doesn’t have the money but she knows how to find it and she wants Jimmy to help her. With Gambol at his heels, Jimmy joins forces with Anita, and the pair embarks on a tense, exhilarating journey to cash in and stay alive.

Nobody Move, which first appeared as a serial in the pages ofPlayboy, is an homage to American noir and an unnerving exploration of desperation and violence. Sexy, suspenseful and touched with dark humour, Johnson’s latest novel shows a great writer at his versatile best.

This thriller from renowned novelist Denis Johnson is short, but I couldn’t even finish it. I found that the story and the characters were not engaging.
