Outlaw Ballads : A Sonny Haynes Collection by Brian Townsley

 

“Townsley takes readers on a film noir-style tour to the early ‘50’s in Palm Springs, California, that bears little resemblance to the Los Angeles setting many of us know so well.  The Sonny Haynes series acts as a mental time machine, and is worth every minute of the trip.”

-Dennis Lyday, author of Soulmate and Angel of Dark, Angel of Light

"A hard-boiled hero with fists of stone and feet of clay...a soundtrack laced with Lefty Frizzell and Hank Williams evokes the lonesomeness of the desert as well as Sonny's cowboy-style isolation; his trusty Merc(ury) may as well have a saddle instead of a driver's seat...Sonny doesn't leave a room without making sure he's "hatted," which seems less like Gabriel Byrne's preoccupation with losing his fedora (and his soul) in Miller's Crossing, than warpaint, disguising the warrior from a disapproving god."

-James Whelpley, author of Dancing in the Trap, Tenerife, and the upcoming The Toxic Blonde

Read Nevada McPherson's Review. for Townsley's first novel, A Trunk Full of Zeroes, set to be reissued by Starlite Pulp in 2023. 

 

More coming in 2023...
