Críticas:

"Sam Fuller's last novel is the perfect cap on his legacy of true-to-life, flamboyant, high-impact storytelling" - Austin Chronicle "If you love Fuller's movies, you will love this pulp story about a physically sick bagman for the mob who makes the most deadly mistake of all: he falls in love." - Book Reporter "Reading "Brainquake," you can see why moviemakers like Quentin Tarantino and Martin Scorcese admired Fuller." - Blogcritics "Pure, unadulterated pulp, full of a raw, rough energy." - Mystery Scene "Fuller plays with the unique capacities and poetics of language in often surprising and even beautiful ways amidst the stunning grit of his subject matter." - Film School Rejects "There's a melodramatic inevitability to everything as well as an air of unpredictability. By the end, there are no heroes or villains, just those with the ability to play the game (and people)." - Awards Circuit ""BRAINQUAKE" is essential reading for all crime fiction fans and another reason to celebrate this unique and gifted yarn-spinner." - Bookgasm "HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION POSSIBLE. Listen up: I devoured BRAINQUAKE in two sittings. It was that riveting, that compelling, that interesting." - Lunch.com "It's the beauty of both "Brainquake" and Fuller as an artist--the ugly, savage, lingering fear which keeps Brainquake teetering and readers salivating for more." - Cinema Sentries "This is Fuller at his best and worth a read if you're a fan of his work or a fan of great crime novels. It's uncompromising and hard hitting; you will not want to put this book down." - City of Films "If you're a fan of this pulp genre, this will be one solid read." - Retrenders "If you enjoy a good crime story with some twists and turns give Brainquake a look-see." - Pop Cults ""Brainquake" is a good read and one well worth checking out for fans of old mafia films or fans of the Hard Case Crime novel series." - BGG ""Brainquake" is crackerjack entertaining, but also skillfully measured and constructed." - The Playlist "It's a Saturday matinee and pulp fiction in the purest sense, although there is a depth to it, particularly when Fuller is riffing on his characters." - Lit Reactor "It's uncompromising and hard hitting; you will not want to put this book down." - City of Films "A word to the wary noir aficionado: If you start this book, don't plan to do anything else for a while. Like sleeping." - News OK "The dialogue blasts out like gunshots and his tabloid inspired prose has the punchy feel of his editing. The emotions are raw and heightened. Everything is heightened, yet retains the truth in its main characters. "Brainquake" is full on Fuller." - Mystery People "Filled with powerful imagery and violence --- "Brainquake" is crackerjack entertaining, but also skillfully measured and constructed." - Indiewire ""Brainquake" is exactly what it needs to be; there is mystery, crime, intrigue, and plot twists a plenty." - Pop Cults "Well worth checking out." - BGG After Dark "You will not want to put this book down until the final bloody pages score across your brain pan. While I hesitate to ever proclaim a novel perfect, "Brainquake" makes quite the violent case for the designation." - Mania "An overheated, overstuffed and never less than entertaining slab of Fuller's expansive pulp imagination." - Turner Classic Movies "Hard Case Crime has given us a welcome return to the world and mind of Samuel Fuller, reminding us how pleasurable such straightforward, effective, dynamic storytelling can be." - Deep Focus "It's a little over 300 pages of can't-put-it-down writing, with so many of the descriptions and hard-hitting scenarios evoking cinematic imagery. Indeed, Brainquake reads like one of Fuller's edgy films from the 1950s (especially Pickup on South Street or The Naked Kiss), and has an air of fatalism and shuddering frustration that cannot help but feel biographically inspired by his White Dog troubles. For those interested in, or downright fanatical about, Fuller, Brainquake offers something new from an artist whose new material has subsided long ago. Hard Case Crime has given us a welcome return to the world and mind of Samuel Fuller, reminding us how pleasurable such straightforward, effective, dynamic storytelling can be." - Deep Focus "BRAINQUAKE is a noir gem, published on what would have been the author's 102nd birthday. It is easily one of the best books Hard Case has released in its 10-year history and has one of the greatest first lines of any noir novel I have ever read..." - Book Reporter "The bravura opening is a knockout...Fuller fans will find it hard to resist." -- BOOKLIST "The writing is pulpy and the violence brutal...Fuller explodes a few surprises to keep the plot unpredictable, and his mordant asides on crime and corruption elevate this tale above much standard genre fare." -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY "A real throwback of a crime novel, full of violence and colorful dialog...exciting and unpredictable." -- LIBRARY JOURNAL "Classic noir fiction filled with shadowy underworld dealings[, ] quick dialogue and rich archetypal characters...Fuller creates the kind of converging narratives and memorable personalities that will seem familiar to any Tarantino fan." -- KIRKUS "The writing is pulpy and the violence brutal, but Fuller explodes a few surprises to keep the plot unpredictable, and his mordant asides on crime and corruption elevate this tale above much standard genre fare." - Publisher's Weekly "One guess as to which notable deceased writer-director-philosopher raconteur combined these ingredients into the delightfully dizzying, invigorating novel Brainquake, a beach book that storms the reader's defenses like the Normandy invasion (which gets a shout-out here). No, this ain't James Ivory, pal: it's Sam Fuller at full blast, relentlessly advancing a multipronged narrative while throwing restraint to the wind and leaving a Proust-load of movie-madeleines strewn in his wake. (Picture a pastry truck in a 10-car pileup after a French Connection-like chase.)" - Film Comment magazine

Reseña del editor:

The bagmen who transport money for organized crime live by a set of rules: no personal relationships, no ties, no women...and never, ever look inside the bag you're carrying. Paul Page was the perfect bagman, despite suffering from a rare brain disorder. But that ended the day he saw a beautiful Mob wife become a Mob widow. Now Paul is going to break every rule he's lived by - even if it means he might be left holding the bag.
