New Pulp Press Takes a Hard Bite Out of Crime
From New Pulp Press:
New Pulp Press is thrilled to release our 25th novel in conjunction with Blasted Heath: Hard Bite by Anonymous-9. Hard Bite is wholly unique take on the crime novel, complete with a murderous paraplegic and his vicious monkey side-kick. T. Jefferson Parker, three-time Edgar winner and New York Times best-selling author of says: “Hard Bite is outlandish in every way—a crazed noir excursion into an unprecedented heart of darkness. From the opening line on, it challenges and confronts, attacks and confounds. Violent and sometimes funny, always entertaining.”
About Hard Bite:
Hard Bite is a swirling, rambunctious thriller about a paraplegic man named Dean Drayhart who—with the help of his deadly sidekick, Sid the monkey—seeks out hit-and-run drivers in retaliation for a tragic accident that took everything he had. Dean’s annoying but endearing nurse knows nothing about what he’s up to, and when Sid tears out the throat of a Mexican Mafia member, Marcie gets kidnapped in order to force Dean’s surrender. Armed with nothing but his wits, a monkey, and a sympathetic streetwalker named Cinda, Dean manipulates drug-cartel carnales and the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department in a David-against-Goliath plot that twists and turns to a heart-pounding finale.
