Con Morte

· Coffin Hop Press

About this ebook

 Arthur Ellis Award nominee Axel Howerton weaves a dark tale of family, murder-for-hire, coffee, and the cost of redemption.

"Jackie Nobody, he ain't like you and me..."

That's because Jack sees monsters behind the eyes of terrible people, and Jack would know, because he's one of them.
Jack Nada is a killer for the Calabrese mob. He's been beat-down, framed-up, screwed-over, and betrayed by everyone he's ever met, pretty much since the day he was born.

He's out of patience, out of time, and out of coffee. His favorite barista is missing, and the prescription that keeps him sane just ran out.

Now everyone is going to pay.

CON MORTE - the first title in the exciting new Noirvellas series of dark crime and noir fiction from Coffin Hop Press!

 Axel Howerton is a former entertainment journalist, and the Arthur Ellis Award nominated author of the detective caper Hot Sinatra; the modern gothic fairytale Furr; the zombie novella Living Dead at Zigfreid & Roy; and the noir fable Con Morte. His forthcoming Wolf & Devil urban fantasy series for Tyche Books kicks off with Demon Days in February 2018.
