Review

One of Harper’s Bazaar's Best, Buzziest New Books of 2022
One of
Crimereads 16 Horror Novels to Look Out For This Year

"Some nightmares you wake from just leave you in an even worse nightmare. And then Gabino Iglesias holds his hand out from that darkness, takes you home."―
Stephen Graham Jones, author of THE ONLY GOOD INDIANS

"Pure noir
overflowing with the rage and sorrow of our times, The Devil Takes You Home is brutal, hallucinatory, and somehow, beautiful. This novel confirms what some of us already knew: Gabino Iglesias is a fierce, vital voice."
 ―
Paul Tremblay, bestselling author of SURVIVOR SONG

"
The Devil Takes You Home begins with pain. Like life, it starts with tears. It ends with transcendence. In between we are treated to some of the finest, most terrifying and heartbreaking writing you will read this year. Gabino Iglesias is like one of the old baroque masters, painting hyper-realistic images directly into your brain. Images that will make you cry, make you gasp, and make you see the world in a new light. The Devil Takes You Home is not to be missed.”
 ―
S.A. Cosby, New York Times-bestselling author of RAZORBLADE TEARS and BLACKTOP WASTELAND

The Devil Takes You Home is carried by a voice and rhythm, shaving sharp and wholly indelible. Iglesias never fails to keep a masterful foot on the pedal, feathering off the gas at times only to inevitably press it to the floor and pin us to our seats.”―David Joy, author of WHEN THESE MOUNTAINS BURN

“Strap yourself in for this astonishing novel and its hallucinogenic mixture of crime and horror. Unforgettable characters, a pulse-pounding story, and a few scenes that will haunt you until the end of your days. Not since Denis Johnson’s Angels have we seen desperate characters like this, not to mention incandescent prose that is relentlessly brave, urgent, and honest. A page-turner with attitude…don’t miss it.”

David Heska Wanbli Weiden, Anthony and Thriller Award-winning author of Winter Counts

“A grim rumination on the vacuum of loss, and who we become when we try to fill those gaps. Here there be bloodshed, oh yes, sudden lyrical frenzies peppers over the main course of calamity. Every time you think the book got quiet, it screams again. And note: you’ll never look at bolt cutters or crocodiles the same way again.”―
Josh Malerman, New York Times-bestselling author of Bird Box and Daphne

“Though a young writer, Gabino Iglesias writes with the authority of a writer who’s been down this road many times before. 
The Devil Takes You Home moves at a lively pace and concerns a man who isn't any better than he ought to be but not a whole lot worse either. In classic noir fashion he becomes involved in messes he ought to have left alone, let others sort it out, but he just can't seem to do that. Iglesias' prose is smooth where smooth is called for and rough or a bit mean when smooth won't work.”―Daniel Woodrell, award-winning author of Winter’s Bone

“Full of violent truths,
The Devil Takes You Home is one of the best books I have read in a long time. An incredible, unforgettable read.”―Alma Katsu, author of The Hunger and The Fervor

“A ragged-edged bloody bullet-hole of a book — Iglesias has written a dark-hearted tale about the burden of loss, the struggle of poverty, and the long and literal shadow of death.”―
Chuck Wendig, bestselling author of WANDERERS

“Gabino Iglesias is a writer like no other, with a powerful, distinctive, savage voice that transcends genre. In
The Devil Takes You Home, he blends elements of noir, thriller, and horror into a brutal and brilliant novel. Brace yourself for the ride—this is his best work yet.”―Jennifer Hillier, Thriller Award-winning author of Little Secrets and Jar of Hearts

"An excellent crime novel driven by righteous grief, fierce narration, and raw violence. Iglesias takes us on a vivid exploration of pain and rage, along the Southwest border where the horrors of reality and the supernatural intertwine."―
John Woods, author of LADY CHEVY

“The line between noir and horror not only gets blurred in Iglesias's 
The Devil Takes You Home; it gets obliterated. His barrio noir is a new kind of fiction, profoundly moving, despairing and scary all at once.”
 ―
Brian Evenson, author of LAST DAYS

“The Devil Takes You Home is an unforgettable neo-noir nightmare written with a poet's heart.”―Steve Cavanagh, bestselling author of the Eddie Flynn series

"The Devil Takes You Home is a wild ride through grief, faith, loss and monstrosity. Gabino Iglesias's sharp prose and visceral, haunting vision have birthed a riveting novel no reader will soon forget. Fresh and genuinely scary."

Tananarive Due, American Book Award-winner author of Ghost Summer and My Soul to Keep, producer of Shudder’s Horror Noire, and UCLA professor of Horror and Afrofuturism

"With a noir voice reminiscent of Jim Thompson, this book charges into rage and despair, sparing no one, least of all the reader. Strap yourself in."

Chris Offutt, author of The Killing Hills and Country Dark

"an intoxicating story of a man in desperate financial straits who turns himself into a hitman and accepts a highly dangerous contract on a cartel transport operation. The job takes him and two others across Texas and further into an abyss of violence, existential dread, and paranormal happenings”―
