A New Shot of Modern Noir: The Club

My latest noir novelette, The Club, has just been published in eBook format.

The Club is a story built around a rich married couple whose teenage daughter goes missing following a seedy sex party at an exclusive private members' club.

With nowhere else to turn and having been let down by the first private eye they hired, the aging couple turn to P.I. Jimmy O'Hanlon, who sets off to discover the sordid and sad truth behind the teenager's disappearance.

In order to make a meal out if it I've also published my three shots of modern noir in one volume, entitled Sharp Shots. It is available via Amazon at a special launch price.

In this volume you can find:
- The Club
- Sunset Strip
- Candy Says Kill

Death Call in print once again...

After almost thirteen years out of print, Death Call will be once again made available in dead tree format under the Breffni Books imprint, published via our friend Jeff Bezos at Amazon.

Kindle sales were doing so well that I thought it would be a good idea to re-release this one in print. Other old titles may follow... 

Death Call is available through normal sales channels at a rather reasonable price.... 

Here's the direct link...

Good reviews are always welcome!

The blurb looks like this:

It was all he could do to stop his hangover from spilling out onto the victim as he studied her neck and what he made out to be the initial puncture wound in her abdomen. From that point, he thought, she had been opened like an envelope with a paper knife, revealing a mess of entrails and blood.

With a deranged serial killer on the loose, Detective Sergeant Dan Carroll and his new partner Detective Constable Samuel Grant find themselves trawling the seedy side of London in search of a brutal killer who preys on prostitutes.

A Shot of Modern Noir.

And I've added one or two words of praise from the Paddy Pack (the Irish Crime Writer's fraternity), including the one from the original print version from Eugene McEldowney.

"Death Call is a rattling good read and T.S. O'Rourke is a crime writer to watch."
Eugene McEldowney, crime writer

"As blunt and effective as the average anvil, TS O'Rourke's prose in Death Call was hardboiled, pickled and left out to dry under a post-apocalyptic sun."
Declan Burke - crime writer and blogger extraordinaire

So if you are in the mood for some Modern Noir this summer look no further
