So it was with HEAT 2. All that busy blurriness, all that tensing and coiling and tightening and springing, all that insane red-eyed jut-jawed intensity: that’s a lot to ask a reader to sit still with, let alone sit still with for nearly five hundred pages, which is fair bit longer than the typical mainstream thriller. Too much, I think, even the reader buys into the book’s built-in assumption/conceit, which is that it is the extended story of characters from a beloved film, so beloved that you’ll spend any stretch of time in their company.
I think they’re not quite right about that. Make no mistake: HEAT 2 is a good story, and a well-written good story. It is as sleek as it is slick, and every page is princess-cut with pristine professionalism, which is the least you’d expect from a pair of well-regarded old pros like Michael Mann and Meg Gardiner. Its hyperkinetic tone perfectly matches the tone of HEAT, and the dissolute cool metallic blue hue of its prose is a clear mirror to the much-loved dialogue of the movie.
