Les Edgerton is one of my favourite writers, so I was more than somewhat chuffed when he offered this great blurb for A CASE OF NOIR.
There are a handful of writers for whose new work I await impatiently, and glom onto it the instant it’s available. At the very top of that list is the guy many of us refer to as “the godfather of noir,” the inestimable Paul D. Brazill. And, he never disappoints. Let me repeat that: he never disappoints. Such is the case of his newest book, A Case of Noir.
I’ll leave it for others to describe the plot which is highly original and inventive and will keep you glued to the page all the way through. The thing I always read Mr. Brazill for is the language and voice of his stories. There just isn’t anyone around to compare him to. His use of language is just the best and most compelling available and nothing has changed with this newest book. It’s simply magnificent. His prose soars and floats far above the firmament where most of us writers live.
There is one thing I can’t reveal at the end—you’ll have to read it to discover what I’m alluding to, but believe me, it’s worth it. All I can say is that Brazill rhymes with dazzle and that’s what you’ll get here.
Les Edgerton, author of The Bitch, The Rapist and the forthcoming The Genuine, Imitation, Plastic Kidnapping.
