~~"As I read this story the voices in my head were interchanging between Humphrey Bogart (Casablanca), Clint Eastwood (Dirty Harry), Elliot Ness (Untouchables) & Dick Tracy . . . This is a great little read, PI Frank Geddy has a new fan."~~
Detective Frank “Giddy” Geddy usually gets his man, and sometimes the girl, too. This isn’t one of those times.
Ybor City is where the cool people of Tampa go. Getting in to the party is never the problem. Getting out of it sometimes is. In Ybor, you never know what or who you will run into. Between the seedy clubs and bars, in shady back alleys, and at the cigar and tattoo shops–something is for sale on every corner, and trouble is always within stumbling distance.
"Ybor Noir" is John David’s first release from the "Noir De Jure" imprint. Be sure to read the next story, "Bayshore Noir."
~~"Ybor Noir" is the perfect break or lunchtime read.~~
