The Naughty List @ Punk Noir Magazine

“It was a bitterly cold day when the bodies appeared. Not the coldest day of the year, but pretty fucking chilly. The half-cut eyewitness said they floated up from the bottom of Paignton Harbour like bubbles in cheap champagne.”

This year’s annual Paignton Noir Christmas story is now live at Punk Noir Magazine: The Naughty List!

This one features dismemberment, heists and old lags… it’s a comedy.

It also represents Joe Rey’s 7th consecutive Christmas crime appearance – an achievement I’m weirdly proud of.

You can find the links to all of the earlier Christmas crime stories (Paignton Noir and otherwise) here.

Merry Christmas – and thanks for reading!
