If it was, the ad campaign was invisible, for I never saw it.
Now it’s out on disc: DVD and Blu-Ray.
Except to say London Boulevard was one of his early books and it was very rare to find in print several years ago, so it’s one of his few that I’ve not yet read.
It’s available in e now, and I downloaded the Amazon sample to check it out. I could tell right off they changed some things. But it’s still pure Ken Bruen.

Go see this.
