The Liberator is short, sharp story that kicks off a new noir/ horror serial from Paul D. Brazill, creator of Roman Dalton – Werewolf PI. A priest tracks down his kidnapped sister and finds her trapped in a nest of evil. Van Helsing meets The Punisher in a hard-boiled noir/ horror.
Like black pudding, it don’t get much blacker. If you’re accustomed to Brazill’s off-kilter humour lightening the mood between grisly bonecracks, you won’t find much of it here. This little gem is hard as diamond and goes relentlessly for the throat. The seedy London that lives in so much of his work appears here as in stark black ink. The tale speeds along like a noir nightmare with just a touch of the supernatural. Bitter and black as a vampire’s heart.
