13 Shots of Noir.
So man up and gulp down that poison!
The first story in here is "The Tut" and it's my favorite. This badboy was nominated for a Spinetingler Award. Sometimes awards mean nothing, but certainly not in this case. This is one mean motherfucker. Tight in all the right places, bizarrely funny, and more than a little unbalanced. It's about a man who kills his wife... but that's no escaping her. You'll be hearing that dead woman "tut" well into eternity.
Along with Kieran Shea, Brazill is a leading practitioner of the all-dialog story. "Thump" is a one-sided dialog that somehow works beautifully. Suspenseful and creepy and brilliant.
13 Shots is dose after dose of the top-shelf stuff. Stories about the losers and the weirdos. True Brit Grit.
Only question is, when's PDB's novel coming out?
