‘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.”
‘Bono gets a one-two punch from two top crime writers’
Over at Amazon, top crime fiction writer DOMINIC MILNE reviews GUNS OF BRIXTON. Here’s what he says: ‘Pulp fiction at its hilarious, irreverent best… For all the numerous and largely excellent crime books I’ve read this year, I can’t remember any offering raising quite as many smiles as this one. In Guns Of Brixton, PaulContinue reading “Dominic Milne reviews Guns Of Brixton”
‘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.
‘Rogue contains 22 exceptional stories.’ Check out the rest of the review 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. The latter is most evident in Paul D Brazill’s Route 66 and All That whichContinue reading “Route 66 And All That is Reviewed at Dark Musings”
‘Paul D. Brazill’s world here is one of peroxide Berliner blondes wearing PVC raincoats with blood red lipstick smeared across their lips. Barbarous gangsters and shyster scam artists, drunken literary agents and pop producers shelter in cities ruined by war and Vodka, drenched by decadence, spent of hope, driven by desire.’ Read the rest of the topContinue reading “James A. Newman Reviews A Case Of Noir”
Kevin Tipple gives 13 Shots Of Noir a smashing and detailed review. ‘As noted in the subtitle of 13 Shots of Noir the e-book contains 13 short, sharp stories of booze, bullets and bodies. The read fully delivers on those aspects and plenty more.’ Read the rest here.
‘Like a lot of the Paul D. Brazill’s excellent stories there are a large number of cultural references at work in this twisting crime yarn. Many become clear in time via the context of the story through one does get the feeling one is missing a point or joke here and there. What is clearContinue reading “Guns Of Brixton reviewed at Kevin’s Corner”
Starburst Magazine takes a gander at Drag Noir, the anthology edited by K A Laity and published by Fox Spirit Books which includes my yarn A Bit Of A Pickle. ‘Other highlights include Kiki Le Shade by Chloe Yates, a lovely little horror story that mixes noir, drag and something else into the mix toContinue reading “Drag Noir is reviewed at Starburst Magazine”
‘Even before he’d switched on the lock-up’s strip light, Big Jim Lawson knew that he was bollock deep in the shit.’ It’s a great way to start a story and it just keeps getting better. Split into six parts that are all named after songs by The Clash (Safe European Homes, Guns of Brixton, Police &Continue reading “Guns Of Brixton reviewed at My Little Pile Of Rocks”
