Liverpool lass Tess is now settled in the far north of England where she roams the fells with a brolly, dreaming up new stories and startling the occasional sheep.

Tess writes a distinctive brand of British comédie noir and her short stories have darkened the pages of various anthologies and magazines, including Shotgun Honey, Pulp Metal Magazine, Out of the Gutter Online, Betty Fedora, 'Exiles: An Outsider Anthology' (Blackwitch Press), 'Drag Noir' (Fox Spirit), 'Rogue' (Near to the Knuckle), and 'Locked and Loaded' (One Eye Press). Her debut novella, a psychological noir called 'Raise the Blade' is available now from Caffeine Nights Publishing.

You can follow her ramblings (both literary and literal) at her blog: http://tessmakovesky.wordpr

Sadly, that was the smallest size available, so I shall either have to steal his and look like a tent with feet, or go without. But what fun!

For those of you who can’t read...

Too Many Crooks by Paul D. Brazill
Rate this book

Another slice of gleeful sleaze from a master of gritty yet witty storytelling. Too Many Crooks is a wonderful soup of amnesia, failure, booze and low-life crime where the action hurtles from London to Warsaw and back again, and there are so many dou ...more

I'd heard the author read his work at a couple of Noir at the Bar events and loved it, so treated myself to this book. And I wasn't disappointed. The title sums up both the content and the style perfectly - this is Machiavellian, evil, twisted, and g ...more
