"Harry's Quest" is imminent - the ebook and POD versions should be available internationally this week coming, and the original paperback versions will be available in a couple of weeks.
In the meantime, I thought I'd throw out some quotes from the book to tease you with its flavour! Here is Part 1 of the quotes:
Some classic hard-boiled Harry:
In Harry’s view, the closest he’d like to being a ‘comrade’ would be shoving a copy of Das Kapital fair square up Stoddart’s rectum, hardback edition, of course. P28
Harry pictured the gigantic Zanza and thought that the term ‘minder’ was about as adequate as referring to Scarlett Johansson as ‘a good sort’. P61
Rhodes was speechless. He’d never heard a woman talk about anal sex. Being rogered in the Harrow changing rooms was his idea of it. P71
There was a card table a couple of metres to his left with a variety of implements on it. Then it suddenly registered that he was completely naked. This wasn’t good, not good at all. P96
The first slice of vengeance for Orla was nigh, and his adrenal glands were working harder than a dissident in a Soviet salt mine. P82
Bob laughed. ‘Mate, Shazza couldn’t spell lady, but she bangs more than a dunny door in a storm. And take it from me, fella, she likes it in every hole she’s got.’ P135
And some Aussie scene-setting descriptions:
The sun was rising over the Pacific now, battling to hurdle the long bank of dark storm-driven clouds out on the horizon. The effect was a cascade of amber, saffron and vermillion shafts of light, like flames spouting forth from a dragon arising out of the endless ocean. P40
As the van descended onto the Western Plains, the sun was sinking slowly towards the hazy horizon. Its waning rays bathed the roadside sandstone outcrops in a warm, deep golden hue, highlighting their natural layers of yellow, orange, and pink, making them appear to glow. In the same fading amber light, the gnarled, brown gum tree trunks with their sappy excretions resembled well-oiled pork crackling. P91-92
Bringing you hard-boiled and noir tales of crime and corruption. And various related opinions!
