Comments The Subtle Art of Brutality

  • Mark

    THE SUBTLE ART OF BRUTALITY reads a bit like Lawrence Block's Matthew Scudder meets Richard Stark's (Donald Westlake's) Parker, with a dash of the literary stylings of Will Christopher Baer (KISS ME, JUDAS) tossed in for good measure. (I sensed the Baer influence early on, and Sayles confirmed it in his Afterword.) All of which is a good thing indeed for this reader, and I enjoyed this debut novel quite a bit--the story moved quickly; the characters (especially the protagonist) were well-sketche [...]

    I see Richard Dean Buckner a bit like Matthew Scudder meets Raylan Givens meets Burt Reynolds, if you understand what I mean. He is by far the most interesting character in THE SUBTLE ART OF BRUTALITY, but Ryan Sayles seems to understand thats and coats the narrative in vignettes and memories of Buckner's greatest hits, for our reading pleasure. While it was another detective-working-a-missing-person's-case story, it was told in a truly original, enthralling voice and featured a complex, byzanti [...]

    Another winner from Snubnose Press. This was one of the best pieces of Noir I have read in a LONG time. Totally original and unusual. I don't want to say too much other than get it and read it now. The mystery slowly unfolds, and grabs a hold of you and will not let go. It is a long book, but I never wanted it to end. I hope that there will be another book featuring the awesome RDB. Definitely one of the best characters I have come across in all of my reading. Highly recommended.

    Absolutely loved this book. Surprise ending is always a plus for me. Yes, there was violence. I welcomed it. Nothing like having the perfect protagonist beat the shit out of bad guys for you. I loved the dialogue. The amount of acid in each smartass comeback was perfect. Was Richard Buckner perfect? Hell no. Was he a gentleman? Hell no. I loved him. He was a great guy to get the job done. I highly recommend this novel and I look forward to searching for Ryan Sayles' other short stories. In fact [...]

    Just finished this book. Highly unusual and very original. The main character isn't exactly likable or unlikeable, just -- very interesting. I've never met anyone like him in real life or in print. He is a man who somehow has the ability to act out on his most extreme violent impulses and come out okay time and time again while also never really doing the wrong thing. Fascinating book. Another highlight is Sayles ability to paint pictures, especially pictures of people and places at their worst. [...]
