The Clear Case is Coming Noirvember 1, 2023!
I am pleased to announce that my San Francisco noir private detective novel, The Clear Case, will publish November 1st, 2023, just in time for Noirvember! Pre-order for ebooks and paperbacks starts in September. Sign up for my newsletter to get the pre-order announcement.
The Clear Case is the first book in my series, The Gance and Grace Mysteries.
Softboiled* private detective Mel Gance has never met a face he couldn’t read––that is until now, as hotel heiress Cecilia Le Cleur expressionlessly tells him about the case that will soak his favorite suit in blood and mark 1947 as the spring everything changed.
The Clear Case is heavily influenced by my love for film noir, though Gance and his “Ace” assistant Grace Springfield are progressive, leftist characters and the narrative antagonizes the conservative bigotry of the Hollywood Hays Code and 1940s society. This novel also describes the end of Gance’s previous life as a mundane PI specializing in missing persons. It strips him down and makes him look at who he really is as opposed to who he thought he was.
