    1. It's the middle of January and, unless something happens to completely alter the law of averages, this is going to be among my top 5 reads of the year. I can't imagine enjoying many more as much as I did this.Heath Lowrance has written some great pieces of late and I've loved everything I've read by him. Even so, City Of Heretics is my favourite to date.The story is tremendous.It has an arc that is perfectly formed and a pace that is always natural and never forced, like the author has allowed i [...]


    2. I dove into CITY OF HERETICS a little unsure about what I was going to get because 1) The premise seemed somewhat similar to Heath Lowrance's first novel THE BASTARD HAND and 2) Lowrance himself didn't seem all that enthusiastic during promo, thing that is not all that uncommon, since writers go through a grueling editing process before publication, that make the book look distant and mediocre in their exhausted mind.Only problem, CITY OF HERETICS was awesome. It's thoroughly old school. Jim Tho [...]


    3. Heath Lowrance's The bastard Hand is one of my favourite reads of the year. My worries that City of Heretics might not live up to it were very quickly allayed. Lowrance again chooses to use religion as a central binding theme running throughout the story. When Crowe is released from prison he has some vague plans to get even with those who have hung him out to dry. Never much of a planner he soon find that events seek him out and carry him along in their destructive and bloody wake.As with The B [...]


    4. Ladies and gentlemen, this - THIS - is old school noir. Written by one of the new school's foremost masters of the style, Heath Lowrance.Lowrance gives us protagonist Crowe this time around (although, in this novel, they're all antagonists in some way). He's just out of prison and looking for work. His old enemies are more than willing to give it to him.After a mission to intercept a prisoner goes wrong, Crowe finds a trail leading to a cult called The Church of Christ the Fisher. It's not your [...]



    5. A bloody great read!The best novel I've read in a long while. Heath Lowrance is one of the most exciting writers currently working. He never disappoints.


    6. I became a fan of Heath Lowrance's work about a year ago when I discovered his first novel, "The Bastard Hand." It was a fun, rambling crime noir with a sketchy preacher that put me in mind of "Night of the Hunter." I've continued to read Lowrance's work including his fine short story collection, "Dig Ten Graves" and his weird western tales of the mysterious gunman named Hawthorne. All good stuff. And now Lowrance has delivered his second novel, "City of Heretics."This book delivers. Where "The [...]


    7. I read this book earlier in the year but I've only just realised I didn't write any sort of review for it.This is the second novel from Heath Lowrance. I loved the first which was noir with a twist of strange. City of Heretics is more old school noir. With a few slight changes it could have come from the 1930's or the 50s & 60s. That's a long winded way of saying it has the feeling of classic noir.One of elements which gives it that classic feel if the lead character's compulsion. In some bo [...]


    8. Heath Lowrance's City of Heretics is set in Memphis, Tennessee, and stars Crowe, a weathered ex-con, just released from a seven year stretch in prison, who gets caught back up in the seedy underbelly that got him sent away. The Old Man, who called all the shots, with Crowe as his left fist, is dead, and a new boss, Vitower, gives Crowe a job - to kill Peter Murke, a serial killer from a bizarre religious cult. And it seems that the only one singing the blues in Memphis this story is Crowe himsel [...]


    9. The strengths of City of Heretics are the principle character of Crowe, the sense of context and place, and the general story arc and hardboiled nature. Crowe is getting on in age, but is unwilling to hand in the towel, and despite not quite being as robust as he once was he has the wits and experience to hold his own. And he’s not about to let pain and poor odds get in his way, despite being put up against his own past and a gaggle of serial killers loosely controlled by a religious group. Th [...]


    10. I liked "The Bastard Hand" by Heath Lowrance a lot, but I like this one even more. I found it even deeper, darker, and more unsettling. I could imagine Crowe at the center of a 1970s-era movie, but I found myself having a hard time seeing any actor portray him, which is good -- it means he's unique. I thought there was great variety among the supporting characters, and the Memphis/northern Mississippi locations are a boost too (as they were in "The Bastard Hand"). The story line has plenty of cl [...]


    11. I'd have to say that the first 1/2 of the book wouldn't have gotten 4 stars. Most of the actions by the protagonist were mundane and even a little odd and difficult to understand. But, then Mr. Lowrance hit his stride and the second half of the book was very good. Gripping even. As a couple of reviewers have stated, there is no one in this book to root for. Hardly anyone with redeeming qualities. However, that doesn't bother all readers. For me, I don't have to have that with every book. And whi [...]


    12. I seem to be in the minority on this one, but this novel was disappointing to me in a couple of areas. First, I like to have at least one character in a story that I care about or root for. The characters in this novel were so unlikable I just didn't care after a while. Second, point of view changes threw me off a few times. The story would be third person; then it would abruptly shift to first person. I don't think these were intentional because they did not transition smoothly.


    13. Definitely my favorite from Lowrance. Started this yesterday and finished this afternoon. Could not put it down. Hightly Recommended.
