To Hell with Johnny Manic is Now Available on NetGalley

My next book, To Hell with Johnny Manic, is now available for review on NetGalley .

Johnny Manic is a psychological suspense/thriller in the classic noir tradition. The cast of characters includes a very intelligent but slightly deranged and impulsive protagonist who’s doing his best to keep it together, a beautiful woman who pushes all his buttons, and a sharp, cynical detective in the mold of Philip Marlowe.

If you liked Body Heat , The Last Seduction , Double Indemnity , Wild Things , or anything by Patricia Highsmith , you’ll like this one.

This is also for fans of Raymond Chandler , Jim Thompson , Ross Macdonald , and John D. MacDonald .

To Hell with Johnny Manic

From the Back Cover

John Manis, aka Johnny Manic—charming, stylish, impulsive, and reckless—is racked with guilt over the secret he doesn’t dare tell. Marilyn Dupree, passionate and volatile, has too much money and the wrong husband. Johnny and Marilyn have a chemistry like nitrogen and glycerine, and that makes Detective Lou Eisenfall very uneasy.

A twisting tale of deception, murder, and psychological suspense that barrels along at breakneck pace, Johnny Manic is a throwback to the classic crime fiction of Raymond Chandler, Jim Thompson, Dorothy Hughes, and Patricia Highsmith.
