Hi all

My neo-noir crime novel, "The Immortalists", has been published today through Telos.

Currently available as a Kindle or Nook e-book with paperback version to follow in the next few days.

Ex-cop, Mordent, is an irascible, anachronistic PI with a noir sensibility and a bubblewrap fetish.

Hired to investigate a missing person case he believes the job to be an easy pay-check, but when the kid turns up dead and appears to have aged beyond death, Mordent finds the mystery is only just beginning.

When a second body is found similarly aged, Mordent is pulled into rival gang leaders’ quests for immortality, a race where the objective is not to finish. And it becomes personal when Marina, a psychic, disappears after tipping off the police about the second body. Mordent had unfinished business with her.

The Immortalists is the first in a series of exciting crime novels putting a neo-noir twist on the genre conventions of bums and dames, corruption and perversion, and cops and informers; all played out on rain-soaked streets amid a shadow-filled city.

‘An excellent writer and stylist, reminding me of Raymond Chandler, Malcolm Pryce and Jasper Fforde. Suitably creepy and sometimes laugh out loud funny.’
Emlyn Rees, author of 'That Summer He Died'

‘Andrew Hook's fiction is always recognisable, but never predictable. He has that rare, lovely ability: to mess with your expectations while entertaining you at the same time.’
Mat Coward, Dagger and Edgar shortlisted crime writer

I finished this at the weekend and have to say congratulations to Andrew on a great book. The style, pacing and characters as well as the cultural (and philosophical) references were all spot on. A great read and I look forward to further Mordent novels.

Many thanks! The second novel, "Church of Wire", is out from Telos either later this year or early next. And I've written a third which I'm hoping to place should those two do well.

First review here: http://brsbkblog.blogspot.co.uk/2014/05 ... lists.html

Bit mixed, but I can extrapolate the good bits so it reads, "Hook has got the wisecracking dialogue spot on, with plenty of nods to the 50’s pulp that Mordent is such a fan of...mean streets and wise language...Interesting modern noir" if I want to be good to myself :)

And if you're in the Norfolk/Suffolk area on Saturday 21st June I have a booksigning in Diss. Details here: http://www.disspublishing.co.uk/Events/events.html

Oh and if anyone has a review blog who wants a PDF of the novel for review purposes please let me or Telos know and we can sort one for you.
