Get ready for a taut, edge-of-your-seat thriller from best-selling UK author Jack Strange.
Brad Sharpe, a crime reporter for the Manchester Daily News, is tired of wasting his time on petty crimes and go-nowhere stories. Hungry for something bigger, and hoping to revive both his flagging career and his crumbling marriage, Brad connects himself to one of England's most notorious serial killers. This might just be Brad's biggest break, in more ways than one.
Manchester Vice another thrilling title in the exciting new Noirvellas series of dark crime and noir fiction from Coffin Hop Press!
The mysterious Jack Strange hails from the town of Huddersfield, in West Yorkshire , England. He’s a man with a checkered past, having worked in a morgue, been a labourer, and a salesman. He’s dug holes… professionally (to what end, he refuses to say – sales? corpses? possibly both?), even more terrifying – he’s a former Lawyer.
He enjoys parties and keeps himself fit (the kind of fit that makes you think he may engage in fisticuffs with Vinnie Jones on a semi-regular basis, or possibly drink stout with both hands while also throwing a perfect game of darts.) He is allegedly married with two adult daughters. They have yet to be located for comment.

Now Eve and Roarke must venture into the gang territory where Lyle used to run, and the ugly underground world of tattoo parlors and strip joints where everyone has taken a wrong turn somewhere. They both believe in giving people a second chance. Maybe even a third or fourth. But as far as they’re concerned, whoever gave the order on Lyle Pickering’s murder has run out of chances...
