Black Charity by Bal Speer
A dark, cynical thriller set in the urban UK. When Charlie moves into his new flat, he meets a colorful array of new characters, including a dominatrix and a skinhead yabo, witnesses a murder, and finds himself on the run from assassins and fixers sent by the highest levels of government. Shades of Howard Chaykin’s Black Kiss and the hard-boiled style of 100 Bullets, all with a very British (as in Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels British) accent.
Bleedout by Mike Kennedy
Remove one piece from the modern industrial puzzle and the entire world economy is destroyed. That is the perilous situation the world finds itself in when every oil well on the planet mysteriously runs dry. Within less than a year, the cornerstones of modern civilization collapse. Criminal empires grow out of the ashes, replacing the Law they once defied. Sunrise City is one of those new kingdoms, and it may hold the key to mankind’s future, as well as the secret behind its tragic past.
Mr. Murder is Dead by Victor Quinaz and Brent Schoonover
There’s been a murder—Mr. Murder is found dead! Old Gould Kane, long into his retirement as a top cop, looks to be the #1 suspect with a motive so deep and intense even Gould’s old partner suspects him. But the truth is Gould’s the only cop worth a damn to solve the cryptic case. The clues could lead Gould to a new and perhaps even greater profession in his twilight…as a very bad man. Mr. Murder is Dead is a “who didn’t do it” set in the fading world of Golden Age comic strips. A criminal’s lament to all things past, present and meaningless. Published in partnership with Zachary Quinto (“Star Trek,” “Heroes”) and Before the Door.
