Con Morte

Free sample

 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!

Mapping the minds of murderers is what Dr. Tony Hill does better than anyone in this award-winning series The Washington Post calls "ambitious" "bone chilling." This Val McDermid collection of the Dr. Tony Hill & Carol Jordan Mysteries includes:

The Mermaids Singing
The bodies of four men have been discovered in the town of Bradfield. Enlisted to investigate is criminal psychologist Tony Hill. Even for a seasoned professional, the series of mutilation sex murders is unlike anything he's encountered before. But profiling the psychopath is not beyond him. Hill's own past has made him the perfect man to comprehend the killer's motives. It's also made him the perfect victim.

The Wire in the Blood
Across the country, dozens of teenage girls have vanished. Authorities are convinced they're runaways with just the bad luck of the draw to connect them. It's the job of criminal profilers Dr. Tony Hill and Carol Jordan to look for a pattern. They've spent years exploring the psyches of madmen. But sane men kill, too. And when they hide in plain sight, they can be difficult to find...

The Last Temptation
when a twisted killer starts targeting psychologists across Northern Europe, Hill is the obvious choice to track the executioner's mental and physical journey. But the killer is about to strike uncomfortably close to home. The next victim is a friend and colleague. And Tony's former partner, Detective Carol Jordan, is directly in the murderer's path...

The Torment of Others
In a small grim room, the body of a woman is discovered, panic and pain etched in her face. The scene matches in every detail a series of murders two years ago-murders that ended when irrefutable forensic evidence secured the conviction of a deeply disturbed young man named Derek Tyler. But there's no way Tyler could have killed the latest victim. He's been locked up in a mental institution since his trial, barely speaking a word. So is there a copycat?
