"It's the sort of book you can spend a long
trip with and come away from feeling thoroughly satisfied."
"I was hooked by page five, I was captivated
by page fifty and completely blown away by the end of the book."

About the Book:
From bestselling author Brian Keene comes another novel of dark crime and the supernatural, in the tradition of Terminal...
Larry Gibson longed for something different from his days as a dock worker and his lonely nights spent drinking with his friends.
When Larry meets Sondra Belov, a beautiful exotic dancer, he finally gets some excitement in his life — too much excitement.
Now, Larry's friends are dying and he's on the run from the cops, the Russian mob, and a seemingly invincible madman.
And if Larry wants to live another day, he'll have to figure out a way to kill Whitey...
KILL WHITEY... how can you kill someone who cannot die?
"One of the best things about this book is that Larry is not one
of those ultracompetent comic-book characters who have populated these stories
of late. He's all too human, and shows a vast capacity for bad judgment... Keene
also scores major points for effectively keeping the reader in the dark for
most of the book concerning Whitey's nature; for two-thirds, you're not sure
if his abilities are real or just good PR... It's the sort of book you can spend
a long trip with and come away from feeling thoroughly satisfied."
"This one is a strange mix of gangster story, horror story and romance.
Yeah, that's what I said. It works though and works very well... I was hooked
by page five, I was captivated by page fifty and completely blown away by the
end of the book. I have liked every Keene novel I have read, but this one, this
one my friends elevates Brian to another level. I have always known that he
was something special, someone to watch, but there is no way I could have expected
this. I realize that it still very early in the year of 2008 but I am betting
that Kill Whitey will become one of if not THE genre novel of the year.
It is really that good... Kill Whitey. Remember that title, folks are
going to be talking about it."

"Keene turns the gore-and-death factor up to 11 for this one. The story
is a fast read and, once it gets going, the blood-spurting, bone-crunching action
