Chris Rhatigan Reviews A Case Of Noir

24883052_10215179014491281_249614501_oOver at GOODREADS , Chris says:

‘Luke Case is a “journalist” adrift in an expat’s sea of booze, smoke, sex, shady characters and shadier dealings. He hops around Europe running from his past, but you can’t run forever. Or maybe you can? Doesn’t matter. This is more excellent entertainment from PDB, who makes for a top tour guide.’

Recommended Read: This Is How It Ends by Eva Dolan

this is how it endsWhen property developers buy a London tower block and start to force people out of their homes, Ella and Molly start a protest campaign .

But one night, Molly gets a phone call from Ella that throws both of their lives out of kilter.

Eva Dolan’s This Is How It Ends is a gripping, rich,  inventive and powerful 21st century crime thriller that will keep you on your toes.

Highly recommended.

Here Comes Fahrenheit 13!

Fahrenheit Press

As of February 2018, Number Thirteen Press has joined with Fahrenheit Press to form a new imprint:

Fahrenheit 13

Fahrenheit Press’ Chris McVeigh dishes the dirt here:

‘We’re delighted to announce that Number Thirteen Press has officially become part of the Fahrenheit family.  We’re massively chuffed that as part of the deal, Number Thirteen head honcho Chris Black has agreed to join us as senior editor of our new imprint Fahrenheit 13. Over the coming months we’ll be republishing the Number Thirteen books and Chris will be out in the world actively commissioning new books for our new imprint. As a nod to Number Thirteen tradition, all the books published by Fahrenheit 13 will be published on the 13th of the month.’

And Number Thirteen Press’ Chris Black spills the beans here. 

‘So, here I am, the new head of a new imprint and it’s important to me that Fahrenheit 13has a distinctive feel. So if Fahrenheit are the punk publishers of crime fiction, where does that leave Fahrenheit 13?

Simple: Fahrenheit only break the rules. Fahrenheit 13 burns the rule book and buries it out in the desert.’

All of which is great news for me, as it means my seaside noir Kill Me Quick! will be rebooted and suited and should be republished around May or June.

Tidy!

Martin Stanley Reviews Too Many Crooks

24882943_10215165683318010_17190122_o

Over at Goodreads, ace Brit Grit writer Martin Stanley says:

‘Fast moving, funny, crime caper with Brazill’s usual abundance of wordplay, in-jokes, and crooks looking to get one-over on each other. It is a mix of the Quentin Tarantino multi-character McGuffin (in this case, of a Nazi ring) and a Carry-On film. It never takes itself seriously and is all the more entertaining for it. Highly recommended.’
