If noir is your thing, then Tom Piccirilli is your man. He’s a two-time International Thriller Writers Award nominee who now offers up a fast-paced, hardboiled tale told with cool dialogue, a minimalist style, and unexpected humor. He has fans ranging from David Morrell and James Rollins to Dean Koontz and F. Paul Wilson. Tom’s got a smooth way of developing his characters, as you’ll see when you meet Chase.
Here are the facts:
The hero: Chase, the product of his grandfather, Jonah—a stone-cold-killer con man.
The situation: Chase is out to save Jonah’s infant daughter from the same crime-filled fate he himself has endured.
The opening line: “Chase’s first day on the job they took the sobbing chauffeur out back, gutted him, then handed Chase the cap and the little white gloves.”
What others have said: “[Piccirilli’s] prose has the visceral punch of the best pulp writers of the past century.”—San Francisco Chronicle
