Kill Shot – An Abram Kinkaid Thriller

by Cameron Blake

When ex-Navy SEAL Abram Kinkaid is recruited to assassinate the Prime Minister of Canada by a rogue outfit that claims to have the United States’ best interests in mind, the demons of his past quickly return to haunt him. Caught between the past and the present, truth and lies, death or life, Abram must make a choice. Refuse and risk death; or assassinate the Prime Minister and embrace the darkness within.

The veil between reality and fantasy quickly blurs as Abram is thrust into a world of espionage and murder, where terrorists are merely mercenaries for hire. Will killing the Prime Minister set him free of his past, or only serve to enslave him further to the very corruption he’s sworn to destroy?



Rafferty’s Rules

by W. Glenn Duncan

Rafferty’s Rule 23: You show me a man who always fights fair and I’ll show you a man who loses too often.

Fifteen years ago, Rafferty saved Vivian Mollison from a crazed junkie who tried to blow her head off.

A lot has changed since then. Rafferty’s no longer a cop, and Vivian’s now twenty five, studying sociology at SMU, with a father who made a fortune in computers.

So when Rafferty gets summoned to the Mollison estate and told to chase down the five outlaw bikers who kidnapped Vivian and put her into a drug-induced twilight zone, it’s mixed emotions.

The payday will be big, but he’ll have to earn every penny of it. The bikers aren’t likely to come quietly and who knows how many people could get hurt in the crossfire.

But behind all that fun and excitement, there’s still a girl who needs his help.

Rafferty saved Vivian once. Can he do it again?

If you’re a fan of Spenser, Mike Hammer or Matt Scudder, then this hardboiled pulp thriller, from Shamus Award Winner W. Glenn Duncan, will keep you reading late into the dark night.

“I have all of the Rafferty titles in my collection. I’ve gotten rid of a lot of stuff over the years, but the Rafferty books are a mainstay. I think they’re terrific!”â??Paul Bishop

RAFFERTY’S RULES is a hardboiled P.I. mystery in the tradition of the best pulp thrillers.

Rafferty’s a Dallas P.I. and an ex-cop who spent enough time on the streets to understand how things work. And when they don’t, Rafferty’s the guy you’ll want on your side. He may quote Latin occasionally, smoke too much and be a cynical sonofabitch, but when it all hits the fan and you need someone you can trust, you’ll be glad you called Rafferty.

Originally published by Ballantine, this 30th Anniversary release of RAFFERTY’S RULES marks the first time that W. Glenn Duncan’s work has been available in digital format. We doubt that Rafferty would quietly accept the ongoing march of technology that provides this opportunity, but even a grizzled P.I. has to grow up sometime.

In 2017, this hardboiled PI series will continue with the first new Rafferty story in nearly three decades. FALSE GODS, written by W. Glenn Duncan Jr. (son of the original author) sees Rafferty looking for a missing girl, up to his ass in religious fundamentalists and needing all the help he can get from his old pals Cowboy and Mimiâ??and a few new onesâ??to make sure he gets out alive.

“Twenty years have passed since the first of W. Glenn Duncan’s Rafferty novels hit the shelves. Damn, has it been that long? Just a week ago I picked up one of his novels and couldn’t help but notice how well the books have stood the test of time. Every novel’s plot is centered around an issue we still deal with today. Duncan truely captured the pure essence of the definitive smart-ass private eye in his character Rafferty. Take part Sam Spade with a little Mike Hammer, mix in some Spenser and you have an awesome character”â??Cliff Fausset, 2007
