The second in my neo-noir series of novels featuring my PI, Mordent, will be published through Telos next year, titled "Church Of Wire". A great review of the first in the series, "The Immortalists", appeared in this month's Black Static.

The cover and pre-order information for "Church of Wire" can be viewed here: http://andrew-hook.blogspot.co.uk/2014/ ... -wire.html

Further details to follow next year :)

I'm pleased to say "Church Of Wire" has now been published in both paperback and kindle formats.

Here's the blurb:

Ex-cop, Mordent, is an irascible, anachronistic PI with a noir sensibility and a bubblewrap fetish. Hired by the enigmatic Isabelle Silk to unearth dirt on a business associate, he becomes involved with Jessica – a floozy with a fake Southern Belle accent – and hunts the Residue Killer: a twisted individual intent on despatching survivors of previous serial killer attacks.

All the trails lead to the Church of Wire. Yet does this surrealist religious sect really lie at the heart of the killings?

Church of Wire is the second 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.

‘Beautiful prose, a razor sharp eye for detail, and chills aplenty. Hook rebirths the noir, but with a very hard darkness and a disturbing air of mystery.’ Paul Finch, author of Dean Man Walking

Praise for The Immortalists: ‘The interplay between Mordent and the other characters is a delight to read, as is the prose throughout with its hard boiled sensibilities, short sentences that cut like diamond on glass and metaphors as apposite as they are off kilter.’ Peter Tennant, Black Static
