A cutting edge Publisher of Genre Fiction, Pro Se Productions announces the release of its latest novel, a story set in post World War I Harlem with all the action, intrigue, and adventure a Pulp novel could have- BLACK PEARL by Alvin Grimes.
"BLACK PEARL," says Editor in Chief of and Partner in Pro Se Productions, Tommy Hancock, "is a classic Pulp tale in so many ways, yet rings true with a modern sensibility as well. The story, along with those living it from cover to cover, breathes from every page with a life all its own. There's definitely a tip of the fedora stylistically as Alvin puts together one of the best Pulp tales I've read in many years. It has all the shades and angles Pulp fans come to expect and it also has its own voice, one that sets it squarely in the New Pulp realm and will fascinate fans for years to come as the first in a series."
In his life, Jackson Blaze has been many things: hustler, prizefighter, leg breaker, and decorated war hero. Upon returning home from World War I to his adopted home of Harlem, New York, he finds himself in the middle of a war between gangster boss Jimmy Rose and the Jewish Mafia for control of Harlem's lucrative underworld.
After recruiting a handful of his Army comrades to aid him, Jackson wages guerilla warfare against some of the toughest hoods in New York City. As if he doesn't have enough to worry about, he also finds himself in a passionate love affair with the beautiful and mysterious dancer known only as Tamara.
When the stakes are life and death, the slightest mistake could spell disaster. If he has any hope of survival, Jackson must decide to follow his head or his heart.
BLACK PEARL by Alvin Grimes is a thriller set in the heyday of Classic Pulp Tales, but delivered with a hard hitting modern voice. Two Fisted, double barreled action at its best- BLACK PEARL by Alvin Grimes From Pro Se Productions.
