After leaving behind the neon haze and smoky mirrors of Las Vegas, Jack reinvents himself as a smuggler and debt collector for a California crime boss.
His next task is a simple one: Trade counterfeit art for lost Chinese artifacts at a remote Pacific resort. Get the goods. Get home. Avoid trouble.
But nothing is ever simple for the Jack of Spades. Rival mobsters, a beautiful casino girl, and ancient magic threaten his reality and his life.
Urban fantasy, crime noir, and Asian myth collide in this darkly entertaining novel of stylish mystery and pulp adventure.
“A great pulp noir piece involving casinos, gunfights, and a dash of magic reminiscent of Big Trouble in Little China. Fun, exciting fiction that reads like my favorite movies from the ‘80s.” —Barbarian Book Club
The Grit & Shadows Collection can be read in series or with each volume standing on its own dark merits. A fiendish witches’ brew of gritty crime, urban fantasy, vampire horror, and sci-fi noir.
