Arthur Ellis Award – Best First Novel 2014 – Crime Writers of Canada
Moss Cole is a private detective, the kind you thought only existed in old movies and afternoon reruns. He’s smart, talented, sometimes even charming. You’d think he could find a better gig than carrying on his grandfather’s legacy as a ‘Private Dick’. Cole is out of money, out of ideas, and out of his league. That’s why he’s stuck looking for a stolen Sinatra record… a record that may be just a figment of an old man’s imagination. Of course, if that were true, Moss wouldn’t have so many people busting down his door.
“Axel Howerton is one of the best new crime fiction writers out there—hell, one of the best writers, period. Do yourself a favor and settle into Axel’s groove.” – Scott S. Phillips, Author of the Pete, Drinker of Blood series
“Moss Cole sizzles hotter than bacon.” – Red Tash, Author of Troll Or Derby and This Brilliant Darkness
