Sam Millar, "Ireland's most controversial author," had this to say about our forthcoming novel, Hotel Noir: "A noirish combination of F. Scott Fitzgerald and early P. D. James on steroids, what stands out the most in this literary endeavor is the evocative writing, the author’s ability to capture a moment in time and take us there, to capture a character entirely in a few phrases, to infuse the reader with a sense that she is right there, participating in a story as it happens, as told by a narrator who knows how to weave a web and pull you in without your realizing that you are caught. A bizarre and at times challenging read, Hotel Noir is nonetheless an intriguing novel filled with wonderfully zany characters Agatha Christie would have killed for."
