‘Too Many Crooks’ by Paul D Brazill has just been published. To celebrate the launch of this black-comedy Brit-grit romp we’re giving away a selection of the author’s earlier entertaining exploits – which range from werewolf detectives to killer vicars.
The new novella features an international trawl among the underworld to rediscover the Totenkopfring, a legendary piece of WW2 memorabilia. The action gallops from sleazy backstreet London pubs to the freezing landscape of rural Poland, where an amnesiac Englishman is found half-dead in the snow. And how are the biker gang involved in all this? Too Many Crooks is a fast-moving and action-packed cocktail of bodies, bullets and death-black comedy.
‘Right from the start there’s a blast of violence and gallows humour which sets the tone,’ says the first five-star review. ‘Too Many Crooks is littered with the usual Brazill razor-sharp one-liners honed to perfection, as the eccentric characters weave in and out of trouble.’
Another early reader applauds the author’s adroit use of ‘salty language, implausible schemes and cataclysmic coincidences. But there’s something more in the wild kinetic machinations: dare I say a touch of the poetic? A lot of mad, laugh out loud moments and a whole bunch of references to classic punk tunes and venerable comedies.’
But here’s the really good bit – five fabulously lucky MMM readers will win an ebook each from Paul D Brazill’s back-list of brilliant criminal capers. We’re giving away: The Gumshoe and Other Brit Grit Yarns <> Roman Dalton: Werewolf PI
Drunk On The Moon <> The Neon Moon <> The Liberator
