New releases: Hard Bite and Moondog Over The Mekong

Amazon.com | Amazon.co.uk

Published 25th October

"HARD BITE is outlandish in every way—a crazed noir excursion into an unprecedented heart of darkness. From the opening line on, it challenges and confronts, attacks and confounds. Violent and sometimes funny, always entertaining."
— T. Jefferson Parker, three-time Edgar Award winner, author of THE JAGUAR and THE BORDER LORDS

The hit-and-run driver took everything—his wife, child and legs. Now a paraplegic, Dean Drayhart unleashes payback on suspected hit-and-runners in Los Angeles with helper-monkey Sid as his deadly assistant. Dean's gentle, doting nurse knows nothing about what he's up to and when Sid tears out the throat of a Mexican Mafia member, Marcie gets kidnapped in order to force Dean's surrender. Armed with nothing but his wits, Sid, and a sympathetic streetwalker named Cinda, Dean manipulates drug-cartel carnales and the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department in a David-against-Goliath plot that twists and turns to a heart-pounding finale.

MOONDOVER OVER THE MEKONG: stories of guns, gambling, girls and general mayhem that redraw the borders of crime. This globe-spanning collection rockets you from dirt-road trailer parks to the slums of Bangkok, the gangster underbelly of Tokyo to a postapocalyptic Old West. There's girls on the run from Russian mobsters in the sex capital of Asia while a retiring crank cooker's ill-gotten fortune goes up for grabs on a Wyoming backroad. And a whole lot of territory in between. These ain't your typical crime stories.

"Spanning the slums from Thailand to Wyoming, Moondog embraces the plight of the downtrodden as it exposes an underworld seldom seen. These are the stories of the beaten-down and betrayed who have been pushed to the brink, the street urchins and mob underlings who claw and scrape and fight like hell when presented with a way out; and Merrigan captures these liminal moments with blinding lucidity, and in the process pulls off the nearly impossible: extracting hope from what was once hopeless." -- Joe Clifford, author of CHOICE CUTS and WAKE THE UNDERTAKER

"A dagger in the guts and a jaunt through the back alleys of Southeast Asia. Where else can you get both for $2.99?" -- Jake Needham, author of KILLING PLATO and other best-selling Asian crime novels.
