"The best little book of Noir you'll ever read!"
Axel Howerton, Arthur Ellis Award nominated author of Hot Sinatra and Con Morte


Violent, exciting noir fiction, laced with pitch black humour

When Rick Tanner and Scotty Crane get the news that their low-rent kiddie show has been cancelled they figure they’ve hit rock bottom, but when the director of their show is murdered, and they’re framed for the crime, they discover how far they still have to fall. The duo - one a terminally ill Korean war vet, the other a hopeless drunk - set out on a quest for blind justice that leaves a trail of bodies from Kansas City to the Ozarks. Their misguided mission brings them face to face with corrupt cops, gangsters, and an ex-criminal turned politician. As they discover the truth about their friend's death, and the untouchable nature of the guilty parties, Rick and Scotty realize there's no way out for them. 

It isn't a question of if they're going down, but how.


"Kick-ass crime and old-skool TV sleaze delivered in heapin' helpings of tasty goodness."

Scott S. Phillips, filmmaker and author of the Pete, Drinker of Blood series, and Gun Up


“This is not a time capsule of your granddaddy’s nostalgic childhood. It’s a timelessly tantalizing tale of complex, compelling characters caught in a wildly woven web of deceit and death, conveyed in the stylishly seductive tradition of classic pulp literature. Compulsively readable, effortlessly enthralling entertainment.”

Will “The Thrill”Viharo, Pulp scholar and author of the Vic Valentine P.I. series, and A Mermaid Drowns at the Midnight Lounge
