From the National Book Award–winning, bestselling author of Tree of Smoke comes a provocative thriller set in the American West.

Nobody Move, which first appeared in the pages of Playboy, is the story of an assortment of lowlifes in Bakersfield, California, and their cat-and-mouse game over $2.3 million. Touched by echoes of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett, Nobody Move is at once an homage to and a variation on literary form. It salutes one of our most enduring and popular genres—the American crime novel—but does so with a grisly humor and outrageousness that are Denis Johnson’s own. Sexy, suspenseful, and above all entertaining, Nobody Move shows one of our greatest novelists at his versatile best.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Andy Mann | 2/18/2014

    " Really liked this - once I'd got into the dialogue. Not sure about the comparisons to Cormac McCarthy but well worth the read of this genre "

    " Quick, fun read. Jesus' Son is still his best. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Emmy Jackson | 2/12/2014

    " Fast-moving and enjoyable; loved the interactions between the very vivid characters. Let down somewhat by the ending, but will refrain from spoiling it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Barksdale Penick | 2/7/2014

    " Maybe I read too many "deep" books, but I sure liked this shallow one. Fun, fast, and filled with flawed and fractured folk (check out those fs). But unlike his short story collection Jesus' Son, this is a rather lighthearted romp with low lifes. Sort of a Pulp Fiction pulp fiction. It is hard to care about the characters, as they are craven and living in the moment. So we whiz along with snappy dialogue and lots of action. I will remember and recommend this book. "
