Noah doesn’t believe in ghosts. To him, the stories of spirits protecting his hometown and watching over him were nothing more than the silly tales of his mother and the townsfolk. He’d much rather play Xbox and hang out with his friends.

But when a chance encounter brings him face-to-face with a hideous and vengeful spirit, Noah is soon forced to question everything he thought he knew about the dead.

Hunted by an angry ghost who is unable to rest, Noah is torn between the words of his mother and his disbelief of the paranormal. Even when she recruits the help of a mysterious medium, he still sees her rituals as a game.

But as he’ll soon realize, ghosts are far more than simply real. They even walk among us…

What turns a good man bitter?

BUY ON AMAZON

All three volumes of the prequel series for the Inspector Thomas Sullivan Harboiled Noir From The Future. Collected in one box set is The Fractured Man, What Doesn’t Kill, and Dangerous Is The Game. Each volume tells part of the story of Sully’s past before he is assigned to clean up Capital City on the frozen world of Beta Prime.

The Fractured Man: In the future, as humanity spreads throughout the galaxy, the ideals of justice for all, integrity, and honesty are nothing more than outdated concepts to many who have benefited as members of the wealthy, elitist ruling class.

To the incorruptible lawman, Thomas Sullivan, these ideals are all he has left to cling to. Betrayed by those he respected and admired, the very institutions he served, Sullivan has paid a heavy price. The loss of his mentor, friend, and woman he loved are just the beginning.

In a shadowy future, where the dark ideals of greed, lust for power, and a sense of entitlement govern the choices of many, there are those who still stand for justice. Men like Thomas Sullivan.

With little more than a job he loves, Sullivan struggles to find his way in a universe that increasingly seems to have no place for him. Damaged by the events of his life and in conflict with himself, Thomas Sullivan is The Fractured Man.

What Doesn’t Kill: If that which does not kill you makes you stronger, then Inspector Thomas Sullivan is one tough dude. As life continues to kick Sullivan around the galaxy, the Alliance finds one criminal mess after another for the Inspector to clean up.

Cynical, bitter, and under no illusions about what life has in store for him, Sullivan finds the strength to fight corruption, bring justice to those who seldom experience it, and more often than not, kill the bad guy.

If Sullivan’s life wasn’t troubled enough, his path crosses that of a strange young woman and her sisters who are all too familiar with tragedy. 500 years in the future, hardboiled crime still reaches out and hurts the innocent.

Dangerous is the Game: With nothing left to live for, Inspector Sullivan accepts the most dangerous assignment a cop can have. He goes undercover to help break up a human trafficking ring.

Reeling from guilt and loss, Sullivan dives into his undercover role of enforcer for the local mob in Brill City on the planet Minaria Prime. Alcohol and violence quickly become Sully’s only friends.

What starts out as a straightforward undercover job turns into a case filled with political intrigue, serial killers, and a galaxy wide human smuggling cartel. Follow Sully as he works to keep his sanity while trying to stop human suffering on an unspeakable scale.

Dark memories stirred up by the victim’s likeness threaten Corey’s ability to remain focused on the job. When a friend calls, worried that her daughter is missing, it’s one more thing to add to the ever-growing list.

While he’s getting his life back together, trying to start a new career in technical writing and reporting regularly to his parole officer, he becomes friendly with his next-door neighbor, Caroline Kelly, and her golden retriever, Rochester.

When Caroline is killed, Steve’s high-school pal, the local police detective, asks him to become the dog’s temporary guardian. With canine charm and doggy love, Rochester begins to win Steve over, and these two unlikely sleuths work to uncover the mystery behind Caroline’s death.

The second book in the series is THE KINGDOM OF DOG. When his mentor, Joe Dagorian, director of admissions at prestigious Eastern College, is murdered during a fund-raising event, Steve Levitan feels obliged to investigate. He and his golden retriever, Rochester, go nose to the ground to dig up clues, including a bloody knife and some curious photographs.

But will Steve’s curiosity and Rochester’s savvy save them when the killer comes calling?

dead, and a faulty computer program is jeopardizing student records and financial aid. It’s up to Steve and Rochester to dig into the situation and retrieve the culprits!

Rita Gaines wasn’t a nice person—but she did love her dogs, and most of her clients respected her financial acumen and her talent in training dogs for agility trials. When she’s found dead, there’s a long line of potential suspects from Wall Street whiz kids to doting doggie daddies— including one of Steve’s former students.

Felae is an art prodigy now studying with Steve’s girlfriend, Lili, chair of Eastern’s Fine Arts department, and Rita hated his controversial senior project. When she tried to have his scholarship cancelled, he threatened to kill her. But is he the villain behind her death?

In between helping Steve’s high school friend Rick track the killer, Rochester practices darting around weave poles and jumping over limbo poles while Steve helps shepherd the college toward the completion of another academic year. It’s spring in Stewart’s Crossing, and old friends – and their dogs—gather together to investigate and eventually, to celebrate.

Dark Reviews

Where else could I turn, but to my favourite ‘Dark’ writer, Stephen King.

This is a collection of four stories:
“Mr Harrigan’s Phone”
“The Life of Chuck”
“Rat”
“If It Bleeds”.
With Stephen King books, often the telling is more interesting than the plot. That is not a terrible thing, while a talented storyteller can jerk life into a weak story, a great story can always struggle under a weak storyteller which makes for an uneven read in If It Bleeds.
The first novella, ‘Mr Harrigan’s Phone’, is the lead character story that King does so well. It transitions from kicking off with a nostalgic melancholy in the first few pages, to something darker and thoughtful at the end. Its ideas and predictions about high-tech and business seem crammed into the story, the reader is left to decide if it was all coincidence. There is an exciting twist at the end.
Somehow the stories are unlevel. Interesting, but odd. The Life of Chuck is an apocalyptic yarn, classic in its understatement and weird in its tricky messages.
Tale two is rather strange, and interesting in its way. The closing ghost story is so King-like, you don’t know what you are reading until the end. I’m not sure if they are connected, or supposed to be. Does it matter? I guess not.
If It Bleeds, the longest and the strongest of the bunch. Holly Gibney steps up and takes the role of the protagonist, and the opening scenes of the school bombing catch your interest. You are then caught, as in genuine King stories. Caught between heroine and villain. There is a sense of real evil, Holly sets herself perfectly, neatly mirrored by the interplay between Holly and her mother. On to the ending – it was perfect.
The last story, Rat, has its gory moments. A mix of genres. I enjoyed it, even as I kept shaking my head in wonder, as I said earlier, the plot is so often secondary to the narration for King.
If It Bleeds proves the Mr King knows how to write, even if he has strayed from what he used to write.
This is the official blurb. Newspeople have a saying: ‘If it bleeds, it leads’. And a bomb at Albert Macready Middle School is guaranteed to lead any bulletin.
Holly Gibney of the Finders Keepers detective agency is working on the case of a missing dog – and on her own need to be more assertive – when she sees the footage on TV. But when she tunes in again, to the late-night report, she realises there is something not right about the correspondent first on the scene. So begins ‘If It Bleeds’, a stand-alone sequel to the number one bestselling The Outsider featuring the incomparable Holly on her first solo case – and also the riveting title story in Stephen King’s brilliant new collection.
Dancing alongside are three more wonderful long stories from this ‘formidably versatile author’ (The Sunday Times) – ‘Mr Harrigan’s Phone’, ‘The Life of Chuck’ and ‘Rat’. All four display the richness of King’s storytelling with grace, humour, horror and breathtaking suspense. A fascinating Author’s Note gives us a wonderful insight into the origin of each story and the writer’s unparalleled imagination.
