Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Stoker-winner Keene (Ghoul) delivers a lot of gore but little else that's memorable in this horror novel set in central Pennsylvania. Larry Gibson, a package-loader for Globe Package System, becomes fascinated with Sondra Belov, a dancer at the Odessa, a strip joint owned by Zakhar Putin, a mysterious Russian known as Whitey. After one visit to the club, Gibson is surprised to find Sondra hiding under his car. When he helps her escape from Whitey, he discovers he's made an enemy of an apparent immortal, who bounces back after being shot, eviscerated and otherwise mortally injured. Sandra explains that Whitey, a descendant of Rasputin, has inherited remarkable regenerative powers. Readers may find Gibson's transformation from an average guy to a master fighter who can hold his own against the monstrous Whitey less than convincing. (Dec.)

Brian Keene may very well be one of horror's best authors.
Zombie_Gunslinger
It's fast and fun and unique, I'd call this a fast paced chase scene/crime novel more than a horror novel although there are certain horror elements.
Kerry G.S. Lipp
Highly recommended whether you are a fan of Brian Keene or not!

Okay, this one takes a great deal of suspended belief, but if you put that aside, it's a great way to spend a couple of evenings. The Publisher's Weekly review pretty much provides the synopsis and lets slip Whitey's secret, but even so, it's a must read for Keene fans and fans of the Thriller/Horror genres. While Keene does not yet possess the ability to get you to buy the fantastic elements of the story the way King can, Keene can nonetheless write. His style is extremely visual and cinematic and his dialogue is always clear and true. Not sure if it was Keene's intent or not, but this work was very Koontz-like in its pacing and execution. That is to say: Koontz in his prime; not Koontz of late. Think CHASE, COLD FIRE, or any of the Leigh Nichol's books. What I also enjoyed was the extra layer Keene added with references to his othe works. I always look forward to each new offerning by Mr. Keene and KILL WHITEY was no exception. Recommended. Can't wait for GHOST WALK!

I found this a page turning thriller with a supernatural twist. There is something about Keene's writing that hooks me from the get go.

My intro to Brian Keene, and it made me want to read more.

A group of friends that all work the late shift and do what's expected to be done late at night after work. Strip clubs and beer. Except one of them falls for a stripper, from a club owned by mobsters. A little supernatural occurrences and chases later it's a tale for the ages.

Format: Hardcover
This book is different from what you think on multiple layers. To start with, the title. No, KILL WHITEY does not refer to what you might think. (It is an awesome title though!) Instead Whitey is a Russian mobster who runs a strip club and several less-than-legitimate business in Pennsylvania. He earned the nickname due to his white hair: face, hair, eyebrows. The reason to kill him is that one of the strippers, Sondra, wants him dead. Why? Because she asked Larry Gibson, the story's main protagonist, to do so. Her reason was that she is pregnant, Whitey wants the baby dead and she wants it to live. However, after falling in love with her Larry only needs the barest of reasons to do so. The problem is that Whitey doesn't kill as easy as most people do.

Getting back to why the book is different than you might think, the events that unfold aren't quite what you would expect. I don't want to ruin it for you but the usual cliches are not followed. Plus Whitey has more depth to him than you would think. Some of the characters are a bit flat (my only complaint) but the action and pacing of the story are so quick that you barely notice. It's no wonder why Keene dedicated the book to Tom Piccirilli; it very easily falls into the same type of book that Piccirilli would write. If you like either of the authors, give the other a try. You won't be sorry.

Format: Paperback
This was the first of Keene's books I had ever read. Though it had been out for awhile it wasn't till Deadite gave the world a cheaper release that I snagged a copy. Of course once again, that damn cover art.

This one was a fast read, chugged back faster then a six pack on a hot day. Fast, easy and bubbly with frothy blood.

I don't want to ruin this story by getting into it to deeply, but basically... a group of friends who frequent a strip club, one character falls in love with the sight of a stripper, who is "owned" by a Russian gangster named Whitey. She escapes with his help and no matter what they throw at this Whitey fellow, well, he just won't stay down.

A great fun, horror novel! Full of gore, violence and human struggles to overcome the evils they release.

My only qualm..."True that" is said a few times by one character and I wanted to strangle him every time he said that at critically moments in the story. Lucky for me he is brutally dispatched.

Kill Whitey is Brian Keene at pretty close to his finest. I've read several of Keene's books and this one stands out. It's fast and fun and unique, I'd call this a fast paced chase scene/crime novel more than a horror novel although there are certain horror elements. What I like most about this book is what I like most about my favorites by Keene. Flat out, BK can write in first person and he kills it every time. A good chunk of Keene's first person work reads like autobio and while I'm sure that some is based on true stories from his life, I just think that Keene is damn good at knowing who his characters are and how to make those first person characters make friends with the reader. I hope that makes sense, it's hard to put into words. Larry, the main character in KW is a blue collar working man, equal parts lonely, horny, loyal, funny and hardworking. A character most males are or have been at a point in their lives. You'll fly through the blood-soaked pages of this book and have a lot of fun on your ride. Get it! Enjoy it! I sure did. Here to hoping for a sequel.

This book was so much fun. It was like reading a grindhouse flick. It was gross, funny, and kind of sexy. If you're easily offended run away. If you're not check it out.
