Stoner’s right hand moved with great speed and considerable accuracy. The forefingers of the hand ran up into the nostrils of the would-be brawler, and Stoner reeled his arm back in, bringing the nose – and attached face – with it and into violent contact with the table top.
Blood – very bright blood – poured from the nose around the fingers anchored in it.
‘Yuk’, Stoner remarked.
That twisted little snippet is just one of the wickedly grisly moments from the new JJ Stoner quick thriller, CzechM8, which will be published on 3rd October 2019. It’s a pithy mix of hardboiled humour and blunt force trauma, recommended for readers who enjoy Elmore Leonard, Lawrence Block and Stephen Leather.
