Joe Stein’s lead character listed on US genre website 

Joe Stein’s downmarket bodyguard and ex-boxer, Garron, has been given his own entry on the Thrilling Detective Website, a US site that lists literary PIs. He’s up there with Marlowe, Spade, Archer and Burke. 

It’s not immortality, but it’s pretty cool on a site that’s the final word on the genre.

“A terrific read, impossible to put down. Ex-boxer Garron is no two-dimensional thug, but a complex guy with a conscience. With this visual, visceral and engrossing story, Joe Stein takes the crime noir novel to new heights.”

Author Sally Spedding 

“You’ll want to read faster and faster… Deftly drawn characters and a wonderfully lurid setting set this up as a book that will stay with you long after you finish reading. This is the full package.”
