Church Of Wire

"Beautiful prose, a razor sharp eye for detail, and chills aplenty."

- Paul Finch











"Church Of Wire" is my third published novel and the second to feature my irascible PI, Mordent, in another modern pulp noir-style story. It was published as both an e-book and paperback by Telos Moonrise in May 2015. Cover art is by Iain Robertson.

Ex-cop, Mordent, is an irascible, anachronistic PI with a noir sensibility and a bubblewrap fetish. Hired by the enigmatic Isabelle Silk to unearth dirt on a business associate, he becomes involved with Jessica – a floozy with a fake Southern Belle accent – and hunts the Residue Killer: a twisted individual intent on despatching survivors of previous serial killer attacks.

All the trails lead to the Church of Wire. Yet does this surrealist religious sect really lie at the heart of the killings?

Church of Wire is the second in a series of exciting crime novels putting a neo-noir twist on the genre conventions of bums and dames, corruption and perversion, and cops and informers; all played out on rain-soaked streets amid a shadow-filled city.

This title is now out of print, but I do have some copies which I can sell direct. Just message me for details.

Beautiful prose, a razor sharp eye for detail, and chills aplenty. Hook rebirths the noir, but with a very hard darkness and a disturbing air of mystery. Paul Finch, author of Dead Man Walking
