Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Freelance journalist Vincent Zandri was collaborating on the memoirs of a Sing Sing prison guard when he got the idea for a thriller about a warden who has to solve a crime to keep his job and his self-respect. This solid base of reality plus Zandri's lively writing give As Catch Can a definite edge.

Jack "Keeper" Marconi knows he's in trouble when a cop killer named Eduard Vasquez escapes from his Green Haven Maximum Security Prison in upstate New York after a trip to an outside dentist which he had approved. Keeper is clearly being fitted for a frame by his superiors in the state's penal system--men with whom he shared a baptism of fire as young guards during the bloody riots at Attica 26 years before.

Haunted by these ghosts of his former self and a time when justice seemed more clear-cut, Keeper goes off on his own to see who really helped Vasquez escape. Recently widowed and fogged by too much booze, Keeper could easily have become a rerun of an all-too-familiar genre icon. But Zandri makes both the man and job interesting and original by paying attention to details--from the way the weather affects the prisoners' behavior to the delicate balancing act that governs the relations between guards and prisoners. And there's more than enough creativity and research left over for a promised sequel. --Dick Adler

Pressestimmen

"Vincent Zandri explodes onto the scene with the debut thriller of the year.  As Catch Can is gritty, fast-paced, lyrical and haunting.  Don't miss it."
--Harlan Coben, author of One False Move

"This is a tough, stylish, heartbreaking car accident of a book: You don't want to look but you can't look away.  Zandri's a terrific writer and he tells a terrific story."
--Don Winslow, author of The Death & Life of Bobby Z

"In his impressive debut novel, Zandri writes strong prose that rarely strains for effect, and some of his scenes...achieve a powerful hallucinatory horror.  A tough-minded, involving novel that deserves its promised sequel."
--Publishers Weekly

About a year has passed since Jack Marconi's spouse died in a hit and run accident. A despondent Jack has never recovered from the shocker as he depends on alcohol to help him sleep at night. If that were the extent of Jack's problems, life would still go on for the living. Since Jack is the warden at New York's Green Haven Maximum Security Prison, his recent behavior has led to an extremely poor performance.
However, Jack is soon going to find himself with more pressing problems then grief and depression. With insider help, notorious cop killer Eduard Vasquez has escaped from Jack's penitentiary. The brass sets up Jack to take the fall. A revived Jack ignores orders and goes on the lam in an effort to find the escapee and uncover the truth behind the conspiracy that wants to bury him along side his deceased wife.
This reviewer finds it difficult to imagine any 1999 prison-who-done-it novel turning out better than AS CATCH CAN. The story line is non-stop action and the flashback to Attica is eerily brillinovels of Vincent Zandri. ant. Jack is a fabulous character whose mourning seems real and his abrupt awakening into a macho man even more genuine. If this debut fiction is any indication of his works, readers will demand a lifetime sentence reading the

I Just finished reading Vincent Zandri's powerful first novel, "As Catch Can". It's a non-stop thriller with all too vivid characters who come to life in the reader's mind. The narration is fast paced and certainly held this reader's interest. The plot revolves around a prison warden who is caught in a situation where he is accused of dereliction of duty in permitting a cop killer inmate to escape from his maximum security prison. Life inside the prison is depicted in graphic detail, reflecting the problems of life behind prison walls. One of the most striking parts of the story deals with flashbacks of a fictional (although based on fact) account of the Attica prison riots of 1971 in which many of the CO's were tortured, raped, and murdered by the mutinous inmates. I found these descriptions hair raising, arousing feelings of horror at the extent of human degradation possible. The story depicts modern day vice and corruption, as well as Keeper Marconi's spiritual capacity to "play fair" in a game that's rigged against him. The book makes thrilling reading that doesn't allow the reader to put the volume down. It's the kind of novel that should become an edge-of-the-seat movie thriller. If you like crime thrillers, this is the book for you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Robert Ludlum meets Shawshank Redemption. 18. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Vincent Zandri has crafted an almost surreal account of the depravity surrounding the state prison system of the late twentieth century. After my initial shock at Zandri's descriptions of prison life (not only the terrifying descriptions of the Attica riots as seen from inside the walls, but also the daily life within a "normal" prison) and the initial adrenaline rush of the plot-twisting story (it's not like a roller coaster, it's more like a free-falling nightmare), I was left with the real message of this book, which is about healing. A man tries to heal after a terrible loss, a woman slowly heals from an abusive relationship, a prison system goes through the painful and violent healing process after a corrupt administration. It is also about those who cannot heal and how debilitating lingering wounds really are. Zandri does an extraordinary job of opening the very private world of male grief and making it accessible. Zandri's novel is dark, almost brooding, but its message is ultimately hopeful and one is left with a sense of ironic optimism. Zandri also has left some strings untied, leaving me eager for a sequel.

This debut novel from a very talented young writer skillfully dovetails between its current-day tale of prison corruption and murder, and the horrific, unforgettable memories of the Attica prison siege a quarter-century ago--memories seared into the psyche of the protagonist, a former corrections officer at Attica and a current warden at another maximum security prison. You often wince, and want to look away, but you can't because you are as captivated as an Attica prison guard back in the summer of '71, being held prone with your face in the mud by a stanky, vile inmate, a razor-sharp kitchen utensil perilously pricking your skin. This scintillating, sordid, and sometimes salacious story gives you a realistic glimpse into a world you never have and never want to experience first-hand, but you're awful glad to see it through Warden "Keeper" Marconi's eyes. Buy this book today and you'll find it to be a welcome alternative to the formulaic garbage put out by the likes of Grisham.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Albert Victory Set Free! 29. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Anyone up on the recent release of cop-killer Albert Victory will recognize many similarities between his daring 1968 escape from Green Haven Prison and the escape which takes place at the onset of Zandri's, As Catch Can. While Zandri loosely bases fictional cop-killer, Eduard Vazquez's present day escape on Victory's (the prisoner and his prison guards being assaulted by ski-mask wearing assailants), his purpose is to write a great fictional story, loaded with realism. But releasing a real-life cop killer like Victory is insane. All in all, this is one killer debut novel. A victory for Zandri. As for the real life Victory? He's just a killer.
