- critical reviews
"Vividly brutal... an intriguing enigma."
"I was never to initiate a conversation, I was never to talk about my religion, I was never to look up when they entered a room, I was to make neither demands or requests. I was to know that my future lay in the hands of Allah and I was to be grateful for that."
The English Crew
The only thing Detective Alice Cooper hates more than his name is his salary. But he's come up with a plan to make himself a very wealthy man. He, his partner, two petty crooks, and two starving actors will change from a band of New York small-timers into a ruthless band of English thieves to rob a gangster blind and then disappear without a trace. That's, of course, unless Detectives Pickford and Clover, from Internal Affairs, can cross the blue line and stop Alice and the English Crew first. My Fair Lady meets Reservoir Dogs in this action-packed dark comedy.
