The Get Carter of the 2000s, Layer Cake was made into a highly praised film starring Daniel Craig and Sienna Miller. Now Connolly is back with a sequel filled with his trademark dark humor, razor-sharp dialogue, and quick-fi re violence. In Viva la Madness the anonymous hero of Layer Cake is stranded in the Caribbean, itching for the gangster life he left behind–but he’s still a wanted man back home. Soon he joins forces with two robust London criminals: the menacing Sonny King and his paranoid partner Roy “Twitchy” Burns. From the beach to an urban underworld, Viva la Madness moves to trans-Atlantic drug deals and high-tech electronic fraud, portrayed with the same uncanny believability. A dazzling combination of London low-life and Caribbean high-life, readers will find this antihero’s voice authentic and whiplash inducing in equal shares.
