"Sam heard something move behind him and turned. The big end of a wooden crutch came around like the blade of a ceiling fan and struck him on the side of the head. J.T. yelled something he didn¿t understand, and Prince Alfred growled and leapt in slow motion toward the crutch wielder. Sam¿s head buzzed like a hornet¿s nest and everything in the hangar turned sideways as he descended to the concrete floor. He saw his reflection in the sheen of Slick¿s expensive Italian shoes, and then the buzzing stopped." I've taken the liberty of quoting this paragraph from about midway through Paul Carr's novel, "Long Way Down". I did it because anyone who reads it slowly and takes in the richness of the description will surely want to read it in its entirety. I hope everyone has an opportunity to devour this fine book. I want Mr. Carr to have the recognition and success that his brand of hard-hitting prose deserves. Rarely -- and I mean RARELY -- does a book come along that packs as satisfying a wallop as his does.
