If you don't know Paul Brazill, then you haven't got a computer! The man's everywhere - am sure there's two of him. A while back, I commented on TKnC that his writing was / is 'Brazilliant'. And he's a top bloke to boot (not literally of course).
Paul Brazill's Crime Fiction Choice
PICTURES OF YOU by Keith Rawson & Chad Eagleton - Darkest Before The Dawn, December 2009.
Purcell is serving ten years in a prisons protective wing. One day he has a visitor. A stranger who shows him a photograph of his beloved wife, half naked and tied up. The deal is this: Purcell’s wife will be set free only after he does them a favour. A dangerous favour. And he has 48 hours to do it.
Pictures Of You is a brilliant piece of hardboiled noir writing from two of the best crime writers around. It’s strong on atmosphere and has meaty characterisation, sharp dialogue, great images and a plot that keeps you constantly on your toes.
