Driven off the desert road and left for dead, Claire DeWitt has to think fast to avoid the cops who arrive first on the scene. Making a break for it, she sets off in search of the person who tried to kill her, and the reasons why. But perhaps the biggest mystery of all lies deeper than that, somewhere out there on the ever rolling highway of life.
Set between modern day Las Vegas and LA, The Infinite Blacktop sees ‘the best detective in the world’ wounded and disorientated, but just about standing.
One of the most exciting books of the year.
Exhilarating, suspenseful, lyrical and shocking . . . A stunning achievement on every level.
The best news of the crime fiction season is that Claire DeWitt, Sara Gran’s irresistible private detective, is back.
A completely original hybrid of mystery, thriller, contemporary noir, dark comedy and postmodern meditation about what it means to be a detective.
No novel on the [Man Booker] shortlist was better written that Sara Gran’s The Infinite Blacktop, in which the gloriously weird private eye Claire DeWitt hunted as many existential truths as criminals.
Sara Gran is one of the most original crime writers at work today . . . I loved it.
