Об этой аудиокниге

Instant #1 New York Times Bestseller!

Michael Mann, four-time-Oscar-nominated writer-director of The Last of the Mohicans, The Insider, Ali, Miami Vice, Collateral, and Heat teams up with Edgar Award–winning author Meg Gardiner to deliver Mann’s first novel, an explosive return to the universe and characters of his classic crime film—with an all-new story unfolding in the years before and after the iconic movie

One day after the end of Heat, Chris Shiherlis (Val Kilmer) is holed up in Koreatown, wounded, half delirious, and desperately trying to escape LA. Hunting him is LAPD detective Vincent Hanna (Al Pacino). Hours earlier, Hanna killed Shiherlis’s brother in arms Neil McCauley (De Niro) in a gunfight under the strobe lights at the foot of an LAX runway. Now Hanna’s determined to capture or kill Shiherlis, the last survivor of McCauley’s crew, before he ghosts out of the city.

In 1988, seven years earlier, McCauley, Shiherlis, and their highline crew are taking scores on the West Coast, the US-Mexican border, and now in Chicago. Driven, daring, they’re pulling in money and living vivid lives. And Chicago homicide detective Vincent Hanna—a man unreconciled with his history—is following his calling, the pursuit of armed and dangerous men into the dark and wild places, hunting an ultraviolent gang of home invaders.

Meanwhile, the fallout from McCauley’s scores and Hanna’s pursuit cause unexpected repercussions in a parallel narrative, driving through the years following Heat.

Heat 2 projects its dimensional and richly drawn men and women into whole new worlds—from the inner sanctums of rival crime syndicates in a South American free-trade zone to transnational criminal enterprises in Southeast Asia. The novel brings you intimately into these lives. In Michael Mann’s Heat universe, they will confront new adversaries in lethal circumstances beyond all boundaries.

Heat 2 is engrossing, moving, and tragic—a masterpiece of crime fiction with the same extraordinary ambitions, scope, and rich characterizations as the epic film.

    Totally satisfying if you loved the movie, and I think quite strong enough to enjoy if you didn’t see it. But for the fans first. Great plotting and vivid, heartfelt, non-cliched characters. Written as though each moment, each thought is the last one. Yet the feeling is momentum and urgency, a hurtling toward fate, rather than melodrama. The audio is spot on, tackling the near impossible task of following Pacino and capturing the urgent energy perfectly.

    Excellent writing and pacing. It's like a great 90s crime movie on paper.

    WOW! I have to get at least half way through most books for them to draw me in. Not this one. I was hooked from the get go.

    Very entertaining novel, but Vincent Hanna has to be the worst tactical police officer in the history of Law Enforcement. I seriously lost track of how many times the book should have been over had Hanna just had the block and all surrounding streets locked down. Oh well, I still enjoyed it and I guess it wouldn’t have been as good or long if Wardell got wasted early on. Still, nothing irritates me more than supposed smart and sharp characters doing stupid things that even my dumbass would know better than…. Rant over. Enjoy the book and I hope Me. Mann is able to get it on the screen where it belongs.
