    2. In The Buffalo Job, the fifth effort by Mike Knowles in his Wilson series, Knowles shows he s not growing soft, or even slightly sympathetic to Wilson, the former mob enforcer who just can t quite get his life back together Exhaustion, pain, mayhem and death travel with Wilson Corpses and battered people litter the way behind him.Wilson has a weak moment and finishes a job stealing a work of art for some young gangsters after they failed at the same job that he d planned for them One was a nephe [...]

    3. Gritty and bloody is the only way to describe this series and The Buffalo Job has it in spades.What I liked I love Wilson and I really shouldn t I can t believe I m hooked on a series where the lead is basically a pretty bad person I guess that s the gift of Mr Knowles writing I would never have thought I would like a book of this type until I read the previous book, Never Play Another Man s Game I ve become invested in Wilson even as I m appalled by the majority of his actions It s almost like [...]

    4. I received an ARC advanced reader s copy of this book via a giveaway Since I had never read a Wilson Mystery, or anything written by Mike Knowles, I had no idea what to expect The first thing that struck me was what a great author this person was The descriptive quality was amazing I figured I would read a few pages and finish some research I was in the middle of completed Before I knew it, I was finding that I was nearing the end of the book.While I rarely read books where the bad guy is the he [...]

    5. I have never read a Mike Knowles book before, and I am glad I took the time to read this one The story is about a man named Wilson who fixes things or helps other criminals get what they need He does not do the job himself But after listening to three young men he decides he could do the job in one afternoon After breaking his own rule and doing the job in less than a day He is offered a job with money but also risk He takes the job but he also has to work with three other guys and none of the [...]

    6. Someone please tell me how Knowles name isn t coming up when we talk about great series that are currently being written This is the 5th book in the Wilson series and the 5th great book that Knowles has penned This book sees Wilson teaming up with a small crew to steal a valuable instrument and we see how deadly and astute he is as he tackles any criminal job he is on I think Knowles would be wise to find a publisher that would put his name out than in currently is I stumbled onto this series [...]

    7. I m not sure if I have read any of the previous Wilson books blood soaked noir crime thrillers , about a gangster from the Toronto Hamilton area where the author is from I may have read Grinder before This one is a bit strange, particularly since I m not familiar with what Wilson had done in the previous 4 books I gather they all have strange twists and brutal endings, with Wilson ultimately surviving the job with all its twists and turns, by using all his wits and being willing to use violence [...]

    8. Wilson is a former enforcer turned planner of thefts at 5000 a pop When he actually carries out a clever theft for three young wanna be gangsters who botched it a museum heist earlier, he finds himself suborned into stealing a much expensive item for a gangster who is no wannabe Wilson talks very tough, and thinks even tougher He is a very dangerous man surrounded by other dangerous men Double crosses abound in his rather bleak world This book is the fifth in a series, so I ll backtrack to the [...]

    9. A somewhat unusual book in that a criminal conman fixer is the protagonist and it s written in the first person The story begins with a very clever theft of an art gallery painting in Toronto It moves on to a contract for a different theft, a rare violin, in Buffalo It is violent and bloody, with a number of murders some of them good guys , but there is a lot of humour The author writes in a wry style which I enjoyed.

    10. You won t find much in terms of Buffalo landmarks or landscape However, it was gritty and the Wilson character was compelling because his mind is always whirring away.

    11. As violent and bloody as ever, this is another good entry in the Wilson series where there are no heroes.
