HARDBOILED CORNER: BLOOD AND ASHES!

HARDBOILED CORNER: BLOOD AND ASHES!

THE DEBUT OSCAR JADE THRILLER

MARK LOEFFELHOLZ

KINDLE EDITION ~ $2.99

Welcome to Miami Beach ~ 1941

Oscar Jade, a private detective who lives in a one-room flop above a beachfront watering hole, has a screaming hangover. A good-looking dame walks into his life and says her husband wants her dead. A man with a gun is following her. It's just another day in paradise . . .

“You need to get all these stupid ideas out of your head, about how you're gonna be tough guys, and not give anything up, 'cause we're not having a picnic, and I'm not going to be playing shuffleboard with you here. You're out in the middle of nowhere. Nobody's gonna hear you screaming, or crying, or praying to God. The cops aren't coming to rescue you. This is old country – things have been dying out here for a long, long time, and there's no funerals, or writeups in the paper. It just gets covered up, and forgotten. You'll be gone, just like the dinosaurs..."
