The genre will never be the same… one of my favorite authors jumps into the noir detective pool with his latest book. I want to read it based solely on the beautiful cover.
Because I know it is hard these days to judge a book JUST by the cover, here’s the blurb:
With wit and humor, this modern mystery is a refreshing spin on the noir detective genre
Tony Flaner is a malingering, part-time comedian who is full of sarcasm and never finished a thing in his life. He’s had 12 years to prepare for his divorce and didn’t. He had his entire life to choose a career and hasn’t. Now time’s up, and he’s in a world of trouble. But all of that changes when Tony takes a first date to a drunken party and ends with him facing prison for the murder of a girl he hardly knew. To save himself, wise-cracking Tony must discover who the mysterious girl was, what she was involved in, and what the hell she saw in him in the first place.
Let me tell you, I’ve been hearing about this story – the first in a series – for almost a year and I am dying for my own copy.
