Staff Reviews


Finally an American publisher (kudos to NewPulp Press)
brought Scotland’s prince of darkness to bookstores in this country.
Black’s Gus Dury, a fired journalist hack turned half-assed PI, is a
great damaged anti-hero and perfect guide through Edinburgh’s
meaner streets.

— Scott M

Praise For…


“A debut that rises from the gutter and the bottom of the glass with bravura. Crime and alcohol will never be the same again.”

—MAXIM JAKUBOWSKI, editor of The Mammoth Book of Pulp Fiction



“Black weaves wicked new paths through Old and New Town and fronts an unforgettable narrator in Gus Dury.”

—CRAIG MCDONALD, author of El Gavilan



“Paying For It . . . is one adrenaline-pumped novel, as moving and compassionate as it is stylishly written.”

—KEN BRUEN, author of The Guards
