Extricate Throw the Bones Dual Cover

Out now in gloriously shiny paperback: the two gritty noir novellas Throw the Bones and Extricate, along with a selection of Brief Capers that include “Losing My Religion” as featured in Otto Penzler’s Kwik Krimes plus stories featured in Near to the Knuckle, Shotgun Honey, A Twist of Noir, Pulp Metal Magazine and more.

‘EXTRICATE is a twisty- turny noir tale of dishonor amongst thieves that is skewered with hot lust and cold blooded murder.’

Richard Godwin, author of One Lost SummerApostle Rising and Mr Glamour
