I was very pleased to received a very favorable review for “The Joy of Killing” from the Kirkus Review. Kirkus is famous for either ignoring or blasting books. Here are my favorite lines:
MacLean’s writing is lyrical, ebbing and flowing like a deep riptide that conceals the danger beneath; there is something unsavory and even panic-inducing about being pulled inside his tale. .
A dizzying and delirious meditation on desire, violence, guilt, and philosophical justification.
