‘Luke Case is every bit the worthy protagonist of this archetypal piece of noir. His capacity for hard living is only just surpassed by his will to survive, in this fast-moving Euro-crime caper. Case doesn’t so much step on toes, as climb all over the clutches of the various gangsters he meets along the way,Continue reading “Dominic Milne reviews A Case Of Noir”
’13 Shots of Noir is a short story collection from Paul D. Brazill. All 13 of these stories are very short and snappy. In most of these stories I felt if Raymond Chandler was writing today, it would read a lot like this. His characters have sharp tongues and use smart ass remarks mixed withContinue reading “13 Shots Of Noir reviewed at Everythingnoir.”
‘My latest epiphany has come with the opening stories of Paul D. Brazill‘s 13 Shots of Noir. The stories are all dark, of course, in the sense that their characters do terrible things, but they are filled with humor, and one even has a happy ending of a kind.’ Read the rest HERE.
The ROGUE anthology is reviewed by Anthony Watson at DARK MUSINGS. Here’s what he has to say about my yarn: ‘There’s politics too – though in a subtle, tangential way and even some humour – though of the darkest variety.

This short novel is an expansion ofContinue reading “Guns Of Brixton reviewed at Lovereading”
There’s a great FIVE STAR review of GOB by Graham Smith over at the prestigious CRIMESQUAD. ‘Guns of Brixton’ is a taut story wrapped around the possession of a briefcase with mysterious contents. Told from disparate viewpoints it follows a bunch of unwieldy yet utterly believable characters as they get dragged into an ever worseningContinue reading “Guns Of Brixton reviewed at Crimesquad”
CRIME FICTION LOVER says : ‘populated by a rogue’s gallery of scoundrels and swindlers with names like Half-Pint Harry and Anarchy Al, and their dirty deeds are done dirt cheap. The musical name dropping proves infectious thanks to the skill of the author, and the book is big fun to read.’ DETECTIVES BEYOND BORDERS saysContinue reading “A Couple Of Great Reviews For Guns Of Brixton”
