"Get Carter" in the News

Less than a week out from the release of the Syndicate Books' edition of Get Carter and already some impressive coverage is coming in for the celebrated novel by Ted Lewis.

David L. Ulin of the Los Angeles Times writes: "Sums up the hard-boiled ethos as well as anything I’ve ever read... Get Carter is sui generis, the place where British noir begins."

MODCULTURE (UK) loves Katherine Grames' cover designs for the Jack Carter books.

One of the most important U.S. library publications, Booklist, gives Get Carter a coveted starred book review, writing, "Lewis has the soul of a serious novelist, capturing the brothers’ troubled relationship, the grimness of the surroundings, and, ultimately, the futility of being top dog."

Of Get Carter, Publishers Weekly writes: "[An] impressive novel... Evocative prose sets this above similarly themed crime stories... Ian Rankin fans who have not yet read Lewis will be pleased.

"Few crime writers could inject menace and desperation into small talk the way Lewis did," writes crime fiction blog-philosopher Peter Rozovsky on his essential Detectives Beyond Borders.
