Praise for Of Blondes And Bullets

“One good deed is all takes for things to go wrong…Of Blondes and Bullets provides a jarring trek between the cracks of bland suburbia; a hardboiled noir descent into the darker side of Britain. Recommended.” 

"Gritty, very British, and brings back memories of classic pulp and noir titles. Always going somewhere and there are no wasted words." 

"Edgy and disconcerting... It's good, old-fashioned noir presented in a fresh way. A very strong start to what promises to be a very exciting enterprise." 

"Hard-hitting hardboiled crime fiction. An absolute belter." 

Praise for Down Among The Dead

"An examination of regret and self-destruction. Down Among the Dead is a murky read with flashes of hard-hitting clarity. This is no Micksploitation shoot-em-up. It aims for better and hits its mark. Touché, Mr Finbow."  

"Steve Finbow has done a brilliant job with this story. This is sharp and bold writing that is populated punchy dialogue and crisply drawn characters. It’s a wonderful voice that is at once sympathetic and pathetic and it’s one that’s very easy to spend time with.Very highly recommended."  

"The brilliantly breathless, brutal and lyrical story of a retired IRA gunman facing up to his past."   

Praise for The Mistake

"Make no mistake about it... The Mistake is a great read. An atmospheric trip into Icelandic noir that leaves the reader's fingers blistering as you fly through the pages." -Regular Guy Reading Noir

"Larsson, Mankell and Nesbo... Pretenders to Nicol's crown. Told at a great pace, not a word is wasted. Number Thirteen Press are producing quality crime reads that allow me to enjoy a story quickly. Long may that continue" -Aidan Thorn(author of Criminal Thoughts)

"Gets darker and darker... lets you imagine the whole horrendous worst as the disturbing details are revealed to you and the tragedy plays out." -Morana Blue (author of Gatsby's Smile)

"The story starts as conventional crime fiction but as the action heads towards a dramatic conclusion it becomes darker, more graphic and increasingly violent... the resulting climax is worthy of the description ‘Iceland Noir’. [It] has a dark heart and a bleak ending." -Novel Heights

"Cold and menacing... Nicol takes us on a satisfying series of twists and curves towards a sordid and tragic conclusion." -Raven (Crime Fiction Lover)

Praise for When You Run With Wolves

“Explosive pulp action from start to finish... Brutal and unrelenting, When You Run with Wolves is written with a rare intelligence and wit that almost belies its violent heart.” 

"Make no mistake, this is a violent read... There is also a little hint of Richard Starks' Parker by way of Andrew Vachss that makes WHEN YOU RUN WITH WOLVES all that much more  enjoyable. I loved everything about this book - the more I read the better it was." 

“Grabs you by the soul and doesn’t let go!”  

“White writes beautiful, wrenching prose. Haftmann’s Rules is stark and unsentimental. It’s White at his best.”  

Praise for Dark Water

“A novella that will appeal to those readers who like their crime fiction smothered in darkness and submerged in the deep blackness of the human  maddened  mind. The plot comprises murder, lust, suicidal thoughts, and a killer spirit that can't be tamed.” 

“Ironically, Dark Water, though about grim and depraved crime, made me euphoric while reading it, sentence by strikingly beautiful sentence. This book shows Ariana D. Den Bleyker to be one of the major talents of our age, with a mastery that allows her to change our psyches forever with the profound dynamics between her characters.”  

“Dark in the title, noir in the narrative. This may be a novella, but at a modest 82 pages the book contains a smorgasbord of extremes by way of suicide, murder, torture and brutal revenge.” 

Praise for A Killing Kiss

"A Killing Kiss is classic pulp material -- quick, action-filled, violent. Since [Donald Westlake's] Parker appeared on the scene, a number of crime writers have fashioned characters with similar pedigrees. Smitty is a welcome addition to the fold. Give A Killing Kiss a spin. If you like it, there are four other collections of Smitty stories by Stateham on the market -- enough to keep you as busy as an undertaker on retainer to the Mafia."  

"Fast and furious, Stateham writes a mean action sequence……plenty of gun play, but with some depth to the characters and situation so there’s more than just death in play." 

"Blood splattered shoot outs, sharp twists and a great protagonist. B.R. Stateham's Smitty is a classic hard-boiled pulp/noir creation and A Killing Kiss is great old-school fun." 

Praise for Redbone

"Phillips’ way with words is wonderful and gritty. He paints sharp, cutting scenes with a main character that is full and rough. Beyond that, he peppers the action with tight quips, imagining a very true world through a very discerning set of eyes. There were so many stellar lines... [Phillips] is graduating quickly into some seriously good writing." 

"Another treat for us all. The conclusion seems inevitable, but Phillips manages to keep up the tension throughout. In Redbone the team at Fahrenheit 13 have another winner on their hands." 

"There is just so much to like about Redbone. Phillips’ writing is so multi-layered and deep it fills his characters with a realness that is usually lacking in novels. Calvin is a character that will have you sympathizing for him and his plight. This book left me with a sense that Phillips will be an author to watch out for. I for one will be marveling at all the books he comes out with in the future." 

Praise for The Pact

"Everything a tight book is meant to be…great plot that features murder, drugs, revenge, and sex…characters that come to life and elicit emotion from the reader…and an ending that closes the book with a bang and leaves the reader salivating for the next one. A balls-to-the-wall ride that leaves the reader with torched finger tips from turning the pages so quickly and short of breath from anxiety as Delaney ratchets up the suspense till the book seems poised to explode from the tension." -Regular Guy Reading Noir

"With its ambitious jig-saw style structure and plot turns, The Pact constantly pulls the rug from beneath our feet. Once we feel we have a grip on the story, Delaney forces us to rethink and reassess what we know. The Dublin of The Pact is recognisable on the surface only. The story successfully combines elements of crime, domestic life, suspense and the surreal to paint a picture of a deeply complex modern Dublin where nothing can be taken on face value. The Pact bristles with raw energy and leaves the reader breathless. Once finished, I immediately started it again. An original and fresh voice, I can’t wait to see what Delaney does next." -Eamon McGuinness (author of Not Running, But Running Away) 

Praise for Dread: The Art Of Serial Killing

“Delightful.” Maxim Jakubowski, The Guardian

“Agreeably distasteful.’ The Sunday Times

“A baroque and uproarious parody of every genre you could think of. You’ll laugh along till your piercings ache.” Time Out
“Witty and absolutely hilarious.” Stuff

“Deliciously dark.” Desire

“Weird but great.” Front

“An excellent novel. Very, very,very funny.” Headpress

“Lashings of humour, generally of a hue blacker than a thigh-high leather boot.” Big Issue

Praise for When The Music's Over

"The ingredients of the story work well, the ending is very satisfying. The characters are well-drawn and the setting is nicely created. Overall, a fun and rewarding visit into dark territories. Definitely one for the list for fans of things Brit Grit." -Nigel Bird (author of Southsiders)

"The author knows his roots and it comes across better because of it. The story flows smoothly and the imagery the author created was effective and compelling. A thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining short read that was told from a refreshing perspective." - Darren Sant (author of The Bank Manager and the Bum and Tales of the Longcroft)

"Aidan Thorn writes about the terror and awe of modern life with a clear eye and a courage that is so refreshing, it's nothing less than miraculous. In a literary landscape too often given over to the ephemeral, the commercial and the unashamedly vapid, Aidan writes tales so authentic, so imbued with a true power they could be chiselled on the damn mountains." -Gareth Spark (author of Black Rain, Rain in a Dry Land and Snake Farm)

"Rounded, realist stories that are gritty, but believable, inhabited by people you feel you know even after a few pages. A writer to watch." -Robert Cowan (author of The Search for Ethan)

Praise for Satan's Sorority

‘Extricate blends forbidden passion and noir so seamlessly, it’s remarkable. Wynd has a very strong voice, and the prose just floats you through the story. I’m always looking for great stories that come from great writing, and Graham Wynd is someone I’m going to look out for in the future.’ -Liam Sweeny (author of Dead Man’s Switch)

‘A twisty-turny noir tale of dishonor amongst thieves that is skewered with hot lust and cold blooded murder.’ -Paul D. Brazill (author of Guns Of Brixton and A Case of Noir)

‘Crime meets erotica in a fevered novella. Graham Wynd has written a fluid and tight story with vivid characters in situations that are inextricably charged with a sexuality from which you will find it hard to extricate yourself.’ -Richard Godwin (author of One Lost Summer, Apostle Rising and Mr Glamour)

Praise for Ersatz World
