Heat was one of the greatest, most thrilling movies of the mid-90s, a masterpiece of action cinema starring Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, Tom Sizemore, Val Kilmer, and Jon Voight. It’s a riveting film following the conflict between a career thief and the LAPD detective determined to hunt him down. And now, in the pages of Heat 2: A Novel, you have the pleasure of continuing the story begun in the film.
It continues directly on the heels of where the movie left off, featuring Val Kilmer’s character (Chris Shiherlis) wounded and desperate to escape the clutches of Al Pacino’s Detective Hanna. Their cat-and-mouse game is paralleled by a secondary timeline set seven years earlier, showing the thieving crew at their heyday. The danger is real, the action intense, and the stakes higher than ever for everyone involved. It’s a novel as rich, thrilling, and compelling as the movie that first brought the world of Heat to life.
