A Nasty Piece of Work
We are always aware of what we have gained from modern innovations but we never stop to think what we have lost (November 18, 2013)
Interview of Robert Littell by Bernard Strainchamps

Robert Littell has been awarded both the Gold Dagger and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for his fiction. His novel The Company was a New York Times bestseller and was adapted into a television miniseries. A Nasty Piece of Work is his 17th novel.

Editorial reviews (3 reviews)


A Nasty Piece of Work lives up to its title. There is betrayal and gore galore.

Littell is so gifted a creator of intelligent entertainment that I could give away almost everything and still not spoil your pleasure in reading this neat, new genre novel by one of our best.

Brainy when it needs to be, arch at every conceivable opportunity and good-natured withal. It’s a pleasure to see Littell, who’s always seemed kind of tightly wound, relax a bit and invite readers along for the ride.
