Summary of Viva La Madness Summary of Viva La Madness Reviews for Viva La Madness An Excerpt from Viva La Madness
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.


"Readers who reveled in Connolly's first twisted crime confection, Layer Cake, will rejoice in this sequel, another tale of decadence and derring-do . . . Mystery fans will enjoy the rapid-fire dialogue, wry British wit, and breathless plot, crammed with double crosses." --Booklist
