Revolver Summary

Revolver by Duane Swierczynski

Three generations - torn apart by one bullet.

Philadelphia 1965: Two street cops - one black, one white - are gunned down in a robbery gone wrong. The killer is never prosecuted. One of the fallen officers, Stanislaw Walczak, leaves behind a twelve-year-old boy, Jimmy...

Philadelphia 1995: Homicide detective Jim Walczak learns that his father's alleged killer, Terrill Lee Stanton, is out of prison. Walczak will be waiting, determined to squeeze the truth out of him - any way he can.

Philadelphia 2015: Jim Walczak's daughter Audrey, studying forensic science in grad school, reinvestigates her grandfather's murder for her dissertation. But the deeper Audrey digs, the more she realises: the man everyone thinks killed Walczak didn't do it...

And when the truth comes out, the danger's only going to grow.

Revolver Reviews

Compulsive, written with wry humanity and a deft and thrilling touch for the unexpected * Daily Mail *
A three-generation crime saga... a resounding success, with each story line featuring full-blooded characters and intrigue that works both in its own right and in the larger context... Swierczynski just gets better and better. * Booklist *
I love the real American cop/noir feel to this novel and think the interwoven individual stories works incredibly well...This is a perfect blend of historical fiction and crime fiction. Highly recommended 5* -- Anne Bonny Book Reviews
Duane Swierczynski writes the 'new noir,' full of bad choices, courage, and sudden disaster, all delivered at a break-neck pace -- Charlaine Harris, author of the bestselling True Blood series
Inventive...breathes fresh life into a familiar plot with shifting perspectives, sly humor, puckish chapter titles and a crackerjack pace * Kirkus Reviews *
Duane Swierczynski is a much-needed breath of fresh air in the book world...This guy is a great storyteller. I never know what he is going to come up with or where he is going to take me. I just know I won't be complaining about a thing once I get there. -- Michael Connelly
The premise may be absurd, but it's good enough to propel the breathless action scenes that make Swierczynski's cinematic novels so much fun to read - on the couch or on the run. * New York Times *
If non-stop, cool action sequences with fun characters are your thing, you need to read some Swierczynski stories * Wired *
