Wake up and smell the fear! There's a new
thriller writer in town who's drawing comparisons to some of
the most established names in the business. Lee Child compares
The Blade Itself to "vintage Elmore Leonard, crossed with
classic Dennis Lehane". Kirkus Reviews thinks it reminiscent of
George Pelecanos, and Publishers Weekly describes it as just
plain "brilliant". In fact, there are so many comparisons
drawn to other writers that one can't help wondering whether
The Blade Itself is really Sakey's "voice" or whether he is
so entrenched in other people's writing that he has,
intentionally or otherwise, amalgamated these other voices into
his first book? Only time, and further books, will answer that
Sakey addresses the issue of distinctiveness in a short interview you can read at BookBrowse...
Blood at the Root
