Product Description


"A savage, horrifying and gut-bustingly funny Western, set in an Old West that would have made John Wayne turn and run for his life and featuring a cast of characters so richly imagined I'm afraid they'll turn up in my nightmares. I loved every word of it."-Scott Phillips, New York Times bestselling author of The Ice Harvest "Think Elmore Leonard or Cormac McCarthy-with a dash of Nick Hornby to keep things suitably bent. But make no mistake-Ashley has a strong, savage, uncompromising voice of his own. Out of Mercy is the kind of flat-out, heart-stopping, psycho-emotional thrill ride that just might put this author on the map with the giants. Personally, I can't wait to read more of Jonathan Ashley's work-once I recover from this one."-Jerry Stahl, New York Times bestselling author of Permanent Midnight "Hard, stark and brilliant, Out of Mercy is the best Western I've read in years."-Benjamin Whitmer, author of Cry Father "A dark gem, a bleak tale of survival and revenge in the bloody hills of Kentucky. Vividly written, filled with compelling characters and laced with black humor, this is frontier noir at its best."-James Reasoner, author of Texas Wind

HASH(0xa57d52d0) out of 5 stars Magnificent Frontier/Crime Novel June 19 2016
By RaCat - Published on
Format: Paperback
Ashley has written an incredibly creative and original work. The fusion of the post Civil War frontier novel with the demented and rich crime genre is brilliant. The characters are highly original, fascinating and packed full of titillating psychological characteristics. This sort of writing is rare and special. The book is simutaneously exititing and haunting. I eagerly await Ashley's next work. The skies the limit for this kind of talent.

I really wanted to like this book. The time period is interesting (post-civil war) and the location for a "western" is unique. I just could not wrap my mind around where this story was going by the time I was half through. The characters were undeveloped and difficult to track (because they were quite forgetful). I love an anti-hero, but Out of Mercy disappointed.

Western crime fiction noir story. Moneyed villains, lovable thugs, fallen holy men, whores, horses, and plots gone wrong on all sides.

Skilled writing makes this tale hard to put down.

Warning: bad words, mean people, and blood.

An ok entry in the genre. Could have used better editing. It was frustrating to see the shadow of the book it could have been inside the one it is.

Gritty, intense, and an immensely enjoyable read. Ashley puts heart into even his darkest characters. Highly recommend "Out of Mercy."
