Heath Lowrance‘s follow up to his classic debut novel THE BASTARD HAND – to be republished later this year – is a searing collection of hard-boiled, dark fiction. The blackest of noir permeates the pages of DIG TEN GRAVES and oozes into its dark alleyways, its blood stained streets and its rain soaked gutters – even the crevices on the faces of its battle scarred and booze battered protagonists. Heath Lowrance’s DIG TEN GRAVES is a lethal cocktail of noir, pulp fiction, horror. bizarro and even sci-fi. There are shades of Kafka and Lovecraft, satire and absurdist humour, chills and sadness. Recommended.
