WINNER OF THE 2014 HAMMETT PRIZE

Luz has made a lot of mistakes, but she’s trying to make up for it. She’s worked it all out. She’s quit the drugs. She’s only taking the clothes on her back, a gun and the money in her husband’s safe. She’s going to find her daughter and no one’s going to stop her.

The corpses in the hallway weren’t part of the plan.

In this powerful story of revenge and redemption, one woman’s desperate break for freedom will change the lives of criminals and cops on both sides of the border.

Reviews

A film waiting to happen, this book boasts memorable characters, evocative settings and a suspenseful plot.
<i>Kirkus</i>
This novel should come with a warning. Because if you read so much as a single sentence, you will be gripped by its unstoppable force...Make all the comparisons you like - Cormac McCarthy, Dennis Lehane, Martin Scorsese - but Richard Lange is a force of his own, the high standard for crime fiction.
Benjamin Percy, author of RED MOON
ANGEL BABY is a bone-crushing nightmare parable: bad people doing the wrong things for love.
Warren Ellis
Praise for THIS WICKED WORLD
.
Terrific...Even the most ruthless villains are drawn with an unexpected sensitivity to their essential humanity.
<i>New York Times Book Review</i>
Lange is incapable of creating a character that isn't memorable. The zone where literary fiction meets genre fiction is a crowded borderland these days... Lange proves himself comfortable on both sides of the line.
<i>Los Angeles Times</i>
Lange draws indelible characters and writes deadeye dialogue, and his L.A. is as parched and pitiless as the desert that surrounds it...This Wicked World is wickedly good
<i>Booklist</i>
A sharp, literary crime novel with the kind of lean and sparse prose that writers like Elmore Leonard and Richard Stark honed to a razor's edge.
<i>Daily Beast</i>
