The second novel in Frank Westworth’s crime-thriller series will be published in September 2015, and we’re delighted to give you this sneak-preview of the cover art. In ‘The Corruption Of Chastity’ the Killing Sisters catch up with undercover operative JJ Stoner, and it’s not long before the body count starts to rise…
The solitary female sniper squints against the scorching desert sun. Takes the shot. Men die.
The solitary female assassin slashes her target’s artery. Fades into the Alpine forest. Men die.
The betrayed covert operative silences his sadness with the howl of blues music and carnal recreation.
What will happen when Chastity, the ice-cold contract killer, encounters underworld investigator JJ Stoner? You’ll have to wait until publication in September to discover. But in the meanwhile, if you haven’t encountered Stoner and the Sisters before, there’s a selection of short stories and the first novel in the series to keep you busy…
Start with FIRST CONTRACT: On a scorching day in the Iraqi desert, when British blood stained the sand, Stoner over-stepped the mark. Men died in compromising circumstances; too many men for an easy explanation… ‘There is hardly time to draw breath in this fast-moving adventure introducing a frighteningly capable executioner.’
Then move on to TWO WRONGS: It starts with great sex, ends with sudden death. ‘Intelligently written, with excellent characterisation, sharp wit and punchy back-n-forth dialogue.’
Then follow Stoner to the Emerald Isle in THIRD PERSON: ‘A short but definitely not sweet tale of mayhem, death and destruction.’
You’ll then be ready to read A LAST ACT OF CHARITY: ‘Guns, girls, guitars and scenes of gruesome violence, all shot through with a wit sharp enough to draw blood. With terse and brilliant prose, Westworth delivers a plot that drags you along relentlessly.’
‘The writing is clever and inventive, paying few dues to existing genres or styles… Stoner is violent, amoral and cynical.’
‘Serial killings and strange sisters, hard as nails hit men and shady superiors, sleazy blues and sometimes seedy sex.’
Recommended for readers who enjoyed the Dragon Tattoo series and neo-noir, or who seek out books by authors like Robert Littell, Don Winslow, Natsuo Kirino, Derek Raymond, Ryu Murakami, John Burdett and Trevanian.
