Bryan Walsh is a killer for hire. He is haunted by those who have fallen by his hand. He will stop at nothing to avenge his brother’s death.

 

When a lifetime of bad karma finally lands on Bryan’s doorstep and leaves his brother dead, he must survive long enough to find the killers and get his revenge, but as the path only grows bloodier, Bryan may not be able to handle the steps he’ll need to take against his enemies.

 

As he becomes more unstable and his past crashes into his present, Bryan must decide if vengeance is worth becoming the monster he always denied or if he could find a another path; one that could lead to something like redemption.

 

Praise for HELL CHOSE ME:

 

“Angel Luis Colón’s knack for writing colorful, compromised hooligans for whom you can’t help but root has garnered him a loyal following, and his debut novel, Hell Chose Me, more than delivers on the promise of his short fiction. Equal parts profound and profane, Hell Chose Me is a damned good read—a vividly imagined pulp nightmare best read through splayed fingers.” —Chris Holm, Anthony Award-winning author of The Killing Kind

 

“Fueled by revenge and unapologetically bloody, Hell Chose Me contains all the violent, morally conflicted elements you hope to see in a classic hitman tale. However, this is not your parents’ noir. Angel Luis Colón levels up in his first full-length novel with superb writing and a voice that seizes you from page one. A dark, dirty, gritty delight.” —Jennifer Hillier, author of Jar of Hearts

 

“Buckle up, Buttercup. Angel Luis Colón delivers a gut punch that stays with you.” —Shaun Harris, author of The Hemingway Thief

 

“Colón’s voice pulled me along like a tidal wave.” —Sara J. Henry, author of A Cold and Lonely Place and Learning to Swim

Blacky Jaguar, ex-IRA hard man, devoted greaser, and overall hooligan, is furious. Someone’s made off with Polly, his 1959 Plymouth Fury, and there’s not much that can stop him from getting her back. It doesn’t take him to long to get a name, Osito, the Little Bear. This career bastard has Polly in his clutches, and Blacky doesn’t have long until she’s a memory.

 

The sudden burst of righteous violence gets the attention of Special Agent Linda Chen, FBI pariah and Blacky’s former flame. Linda’s out to get her man before he burns down half the Bronx and her superiors get the collar.

 

All roads will lead our heroes to an unassuming house in one of the worst parts of the South Bronx, where fists and bullets will surely fly, but maybe, just maybe, Blacky will find a better reason to fight than a car. The Fury of Blacky Jaguar is the story of friends, enemies, and one sweet ass ride.

 

Praise for THE FURY OF BLACKY JAGUAR:

 

“Angel Luis Colón’s writing mixes brutal violence with dark humor, but he never forgets the emotional truth of his characters. Colon and The Fury of Blacky Jaguar should be on everyone’s radar now. Readers are going to love this exciting new voice.” —Dave White, Shamus Award-nominated author of Not Even Past.

 

“The Fury of Blacky Jaguar is a hardboiled Guy Ritchie-esque romp that clocks you in the jaw and leaves you eager for more the instant the credits roll. Angel Luis Colón is only beginning what is sure to be a career to watch.” —Christopher Irvin, author of Burn Card and Federales.

 

“I want a Black Jaguar TV series. And an action figure. And a lunchbox. And Blacky-branded brass knuckles. Until that day, I’ll settle for this razor-sharp, rattling buzzsaw of a novella.” —Rob Hart, author of New Yorked and City of Roses.

 

“Don’t let the Heavenly name fool you, Angel Luis Colón’s writing brings the heat. The Fury of Blacky Jaguar is a darkly wry, bare-knuckle brawl of a book that’ll leave you seeing stars. Five star reviews that is. I sure as Hell hope Angel has more in store for Blacky Jaguar, because this character has more fight in him than can be contained in a single novella.” —Bracken MacLeod, author of Stranded and Come to Dust.

‘I loved this book… I was hooked and couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen next… to say I devoured this book is a little bit of an understatement… What a great book!’ Dark Twisty Books

Unable to let Sophie’s memory alone, Suzanne begins to dig into her father’s life. What horrors is she about to unearth in his diaries? And who is it that’s out there, watching her every move?

Five years after surviving the most harrowing heist of her life, Fantine Park is lured back to the United States by her aunt.

Working with a team of actual professionals with their own motivations; Fan’s loyalties and beliefs will be tested as nothing is as it seems; especially when one of the members of this crew may have been the last person to see her mother alive.

 

It’s going to be lies, murder, and gas station hot dogs all the way down as Fan races to get the answers about the day her mother died and maybe, just maybe, the kind of cash that will pull her away from a continued life of crime.

“Pull & Pray will have you laughing a one minute and shaking your head in disbelief the next. Can’t wait to see where Colón takes Fantine Park next!” —Hector Acosta author of Hardway
