Out Now: The Damp Fedora by Kate Pilarcik

From the same folks who brought you the Anthony Award-winning anthology Murder Under the Oaks, Down & Out Books slings a slang-rich novella from Absolutely*Kate Pilarcik that has tongues wagging around noir shadows. What’s the hubbub, bub?

THE DAMP FEDORA introduces 1940’s detective Nelle Callahan, gal gumshoe with gumption, with a case that struts its stuff like the breeze off a good Narragansett sail. Brisk. Brash. Knowing where the wind’s coming from, and yet … wondering. Nelle’s job? Cut through some slick con’s shadow, lift a corner of chintz off the mist, let some truth shine in for the chippies and the chopper squad — you know — menfolk who measure themselves by how big their tommy guns really are.

I’m diving into it right now and I can say there’s nothing out there quite like it. Fans of the genre will get a kick out of the style as Nelle sashays around the town. Check out the deets here and tell ’em I sent you.

  1. Well Jeepers! Bring out the bangtails and run ’em ’round the racetrack! Just got high tail wind of Graham Wynd’s spot on the beezer’s nose for hot news. This is some rockem-sockem article, winging noirtoriously across the pond. Goodness Graham! Ain’t no bruno, no way, no how gonna blip you off with an itchy trigger finger while you’re on my non bleary eyed watch.

    You’re all right, as the Wynds blow. Hunky dory, easy peasy, swell as apple pie steamin’ off its steam on an open window sill with Aunt May’s gingham curtains flappin’ the breeze.

    And you’re right on the moola. Folks whettin’ their whistle are gonna love the way I made Katie tip-tap-type down my tale. Thank you, thank you right kindly,
