"An extremely well-executed and funny little murder mystery, with an ending I didn't see coming until it was there- a rare feat. Definitely looking forward to the next installment, and where Jinx and Roddy's adventures will take them."

“That if I looked at a mountain with fear in my gut, I’d race toward it and climb that bitch to the top.”
Chad Lutzke, Skullface Boy

“I didn’t want to shorten my stay. I wanted to live there, carve out a bed in the shelves and read my life away, wear the cologne of aging pages. The place made Hermosa Beach feel like a plan B.”
Chad Lutzke, Skullface Boy

“I dreamt of writing and saving the world with my words, of saving myself. And it was the first time I can remember thinking how it must feel to wear a smile on your face.”
Chad Lutzke, Skullface Boy
