Noir novel of human desperation reviewed in Booklist.

Booklist, the prestigious review magazine, has reviewed The Take in their latest online edition. In case you don't understand why I'm doing cartwheels in my living room before popping champagne, it's because Booklist receives submissions of over 60,000 novels each year, but reviews fewer than 1500. Most of the books they review are in the broad mystery genre, which of course encompasses the noir subgenre of The Take, but nevertheless, I'm ecstatic.

Now, apparently the reviewer does not quite get the world of noir and its population of characters with less than stellar IQs. And he certainly didn't think he was reading The Maltese Falcon, but hey, I'm not complaining. He liked my novel and that's good enough for me.

The review is also going to appear in their newsletter, which goes out to some 90,000 librarians. And if they don't start ordering the book for their libraries, I'm calling Charlie Stella to get Jimmy Bench-Press after them.

You can read the full review here.
