Praise for Scott Frank’s Shaker
“With its driving narrative, slim chapters, and sensational plotline, Shaker really moves.” —Newsday
“A total page-turner first novel from an award-winning screenwriter and an absolutely new voice to watch on the suspense scene.” —Library Journal (starred review)
“A gripping, strikingly original debut novel. . . . Every one of the characters, in particular the teenage gangbangers, springs to vivid and tragic life.” —Booklist
“Frank puts his career as one of the town’s best screenwriters to excellent use in his[A] sterling debut novel. . . . Shaker boasts a kind of unrestrained, manic energy reminiscent of the great Jim Thompson.” —Providence Journal
“Frank captures the underbelly of Los Angeles’s streets to perfection with sharply written prose and biting dialogue. . . . A richly layered crime story.” —BookPage
