Folks, Chris Rhatigan of All Due Respect fame let blabber about my favorite subject: me. We did it at his blog, Death By Killing. There I take the time to explain how incredible I am, how the world needs/owes me and I recommend some of my greatest accomplishments. Namely, well, everything. Ever.
Check it out, leave a comment and for God’s sakes, read Rhatigan’s stuff. The dude is damn good. He’s got a short story collection out right now and a novella coming out at the end of April through (KUBOA) press.
Rhatigan edited the All Due Respect anthology that features my story “Formula and Meth.”
They did it. The pros at Crime Factory went ahead and lowered their standards just for me. Richard Dean Buckner, homicide cop turned private detective, is just trying to get to an all night Armenian diner when he comes along a high pimp beating a pregnant whore. So of course it’s time to beat his face in. Then people start shooting. Then a high speed chase. Then a car wreck outside of a police station. Then…finality. Sprinkle in some PCP and a need to protect an unborn child and you’ve got a winning formula. Hammer down.
Get it here.
The girl has gone missing. Again. But this time people are trying to
kill her. Trying to burn down everything she has touched or left
behind. The girl’s surrogate father feels responsible and to assuage
his guilt he hires Richard Dean Buckner, former Saint Ansgar homicide
detective turned private eye to ferret her out.
Buckner was doing fine as a bare-knuckles detective for the PD until
he was rendered “unserviceable” by a hit attempt. Early retirement
doesn’t sit well with that type of man, half predator and half savior.
He takes the case, and from two ex-boyfriends who ruined their lives
for the girl to her rapist dad, drug dealers she burned for thousands,
an uncomfortable meeting at the local Incest Survivors group to
whoever is setting fire to her life, Buckner is going to need all his
guts, instinct and .44 magnum to finish the job.
Because in Saint Ansgar, what doesn’t kill you only makes you wish it did.
