Sons of Spade: Guest Feature

“He is a cut-price private investigator with a nasty side-line in muscle-for-hire work. As the series progresses his investigative skills are honed, and his client list improves, but he never really loses his willingness to get his hands dirty for personal gain and his unwavering commitment to revenge.”

I am excited to have a new guest feature over at Sons of Spade, the great fictional PI blog run by Dutch crime writer Jochem Vandersteen.  I discuss the top five private investigators who have influenced the character of Joe Rey. These may or may not be obvious to people who have read my work – see for yourself!
