I did not move. I am not skittish by nature, but I know the sound of a hammer being cocked when I hear it. This one was a large calibre automatic, which meant it wasn’t a cop. I turned my head as slowly and non-threateningly as I could. It was my friend with the square jaw, and his friend the .45. “Hi,” he said.

It was a simple enough case. Sex, betrayal, sex, money, sex, murder and sex. But when a pair of His and Hers private detectives get involved, the sparks start to fly and the blood begins to spill in earnest. With every shot that’s fired, the hole digs a little deeper, and the list of people our sparring shamuses can trust gets shorter and shorter.

Fans of Decoder Ring Theatre’s long-running full-cast audio series Black Jack Justice will delight in the very first meeting between Jack Justice and Trixie Dixon, girl detective. New readers will appreciate the fast tempo, the noir banter and the classic hard-boiled feel of Black Jack Justice!

About Gregg Taylor

Gregg Taylor's love of the classic adventure stories of the golden age of radio, film noir and pulp fiction are the driving passions behind his work for both prose and radio drama. The audio drama series Black Jack Justice appears as a part of the Decoder Ring Theatre podcast, and has also been heard on independant radio stations around North America. While the central characters and situations carry over from the radio series to this novel, and the story can been seen as a part of the same continuity, this story is also a perfect starting point for readers new to the series.
