J. WALT LAYNE RETURNS TO THE MEAN STREETS OF CRIME FICTION - ‘BREATHLESS: A TALE FROM CHAMPION CITY DEBUTS
A publisher of New Pulp and Genre Fiction, Pro Se Productions announces the release of the second volume in Author J. Walt Layne’s Champion City crime fiction series. Breathless: A Tale from Champion City is now available in print and will soon be available as an eBook from Pro Se.
“Crime fiction,” says Tommy Hancock, Partner in and Editor in Chief of Pro SE, “is not only a mainstay in Genre Fiction, but it’s also something we’ve become fairly well known for at Pro Se. And Layne’s first book, A Week in Hell is one of the reasons readers know us for noir, mystery, and crime fiction. Breathless is not only another Thurman Dicke story. It’s an expansion of a world, Champion City growing larger, darker, bigger in scope. And yet Layne still peppers away at readers with deadeye precision, hitting every beat a good pulpy crime tale must hit to work. And man, does it ever work.”
Welcome back to Champion City. There’s a new medical examiner in town. Working girls and lonely hearts are catching a tough break on the streets of the city. An unknown killer, a quiet man of malevolent intention, is carousing in low places. A young patrolman catches a bullet when he interrupts the killer in the act. A stack of unsolved possibly related homicides point to a cover up. The previous medical examiner and a parish priest are sharing space in the morgue. The new ME appoints Thurman Dicke as a Special Investigator. Can he clear the cases, find the clues and catch the killer before the next anonymous girl dies? Or will he be, like the murderer’s victims, be left Breathless?
Breathless: A Tale from Champion City is the latest chapter in Author J. Walt Layne’s series from Pro Se Productions. The tale returns us to the mean streets with Thurman Dicke, first seen in A Week In Hell. Mixing the rawness of 1950s crime fiction with the sophisticated brutality of modern noir, Layne delivers another one two punch on this bloody return to Champion City. Follow Thurman Dicke into the shadowy alleys of depravity in Breathless by J. Walt Layne from Pro Se Productions.
