Boneyard Dogs: Out Now

“It has been an atypically harsh winter, and Paignton looks blurred and uneven under the low winter sun. I step out of the Oldenburg and reconcile myself to Winner Street’s sour, dead smells. Sometimes I swear that this town has a weird stink that even I’m not used to yet. The street is slick with icy drizzle. It is so cold I think that my toenails might crack. Even the drunkest, most depleted prostitutes aren’t working the stroll on a day like this.”

So begins BONEYARD DOGS, the latest Paignton Noir Mystery – out today via UK publisher Close To The Bone.

This book is the sequel to MEAT BUBBLES & OTHER STORIES and also sees Joe Rey get reacquainted with certain characters first introduced in series opener SKULL MEAT.

It’s a whodunit with the intensity of a revenge thriller and it goes some way to explaining Rey’s character and actions.

If you want a sneak-peak at some of the characters, check out these Boneyard Dogs Top Trumps, which follow on from last year’s Meat Bubbles Top Trumps.

It’s the first Paignton Noir book of the year, but it won’t be the last!
