HER NAME IS VIOLENCE

One group of violent felons…

One innocent child…

One violent death film…

One extremely violent detective…

All coming together in a city ready to erupt under a relentless summer’s heat.

There is only one possible result - bullets fly furiously, blood pours copiously and bodies tumble lifelessly.

Detective Reid Hollow becomes a hunter in a sea of human scum, acting as lawlessly and more aggressively than the criminals he stalks through alleys, warehouses and cheap hotels. Fueled by an obsession with death and the mental scars of a life of violence, Hollow takes this case personally and will stop at nothing to destroy the people who murdered this poor child for their own debased pleasures.

Not for readers under 18 years of age, this book takes the noir genre and grinds it mercilessly into a new direction: HARD CORE NOIR.

This project is well under way, however we need some funding to pay for the cover and some of the advertising costs for this book. It is Matt Madigan's first novel, and if it is picked up by a larger publishing house some time in the future, these books and items will become rare collector's items.

If a stretch goal of $3,000 is reached anyone donating $50 or more will receive a free King Robinson Detective Agency t-shirt.

If we pass the stretch goal we will be adding more rewards to those donating $50 or more.

Any questions you may have, please do not hesitate to contact us here or at pastmidnightpublishing@gmail.com

Thanks again!
