“Jon walked over to the cathedral windows, happy hour brandy in hand, looking out upon the city his family helped carve into forty thousand parcels of death. Elliot watched him for a moment, dressed in the trappings of cigar-chewers, standing against the Venetian Gothic atmosphere in his burgundy velour smoking jacket cinched at the waist. His salt and pepper was more salty, but the Greek seemed a bit more fit since they last shared a drink, and a problem.”⠀

"This book is equal parts and celebration and as such this book is life." - Truong Tran on Tasha Keeble's CALL ME FREEDOM
“Jon walked over to the cathedral windows, happy hour brandy in hand, looking out upon the city his family helped carve into forty thousand parcels of death. Elliot watched him for a moment, dressed in the trappings of cigar-chewers, standing against the Venetian Gothic atmosphere in his burgundy velour smoking jacket cinched at the waist. His salt and pepper was more salty, but the Greek seemed a bit more fit since they last shared a drink, and a problem.”⠀ Looking for a great read with strong noir vibes?
