Down These Mean Streets

NEW FANTASY AND SCIENCE FICTION STORIES WITH A HARDBOILED NOIR TWIST—FOCUSING ON THE MEAN STREETS OF THE CITY “Down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid.” —Raymond Chandler Humans Read more

PI Harry Kenmare loves gorgeous women, fine wine, and Irish whiskey. And he loves to see justice done. He’s old school: results matter, methods don’t, and political correctness can go to hell, along with the corrupt Establishment.

The seven stories collected here have Harry doing what he does best and telling it to you himself, as he goes hard, very hard, at work and at play.

In these PI cases, Harry gets down and dirty across Sydney society, from the supposedly respectable to the openly seedy. He mixes it up with an obscenely colourful cast of characters: bikies, druggies, sensational strippers, corrupt cops, triads, and even a paedophilic politician, to name a few. Harry takes on the city, dishing out his loving, his hatred, and a truckload of brutal karma.

Dark, debauched, and disturbing, Harry Kenmare’s world is a high-octane thrill ride for hard-core crime fiction addicts. But you’ll need to buckle up and bite down. Only readers with cast-iron fortitude need apply!

Harry’s World

PI Harry Kenmare is a prehistoric private detective in an unfriendly and infinitely unjust modern world.

His life revolves around drinking, fine food, smoking, and fast women, preferably the ones he has to pay for, in cash. So what better CV for trawling through Sydney’s corrupt social and political elites, who cravenly chase power and wealth behind veneers of respectability.

In this collection of seedy episodes, Harry is a dinosaur on a mission of justice, looking to shatter the hypocritical façades. And the rules don’t always apply.

Join Harry in the jungle of 21st century Port Jackson, where little is as it seems and none of it is pretty. Except, of course, those gorgeous by the hour girls.

New York Police Lieutenant Danny Pak has a problem. When one of his officers calls him out to an unusual crime scene, Danny realizes that it’s terrifyingly similar to something the department thought was dead and buried. Now he has to find a madman before the story hits the papers and the city explodes into chaos.

Across town, Agent William “Buddy” Redhorn of the FBI has two problems. He’s been assigned a potentially career-ending case with magical ties, and his sorceress boss is out of town. The case involves a stolen statue that belongs to the government of Brunei, but the more he chases the thieves, the more bodies begin to drop. Bodies affected by a strange, unknown magic.

Resolving to work together, Danny and Redhorn have to catch a cold-blooded killer, recover a stolen artifact, all while keeping everything out of the press. If they don’t, it will be more than their careers that will die when the curse of the Jade Phoenix descends on New York.
