Hell’s Detective is coming in June 2017.
Kat Murphy is a private detective tortured by demons. Real ones. She is serving a death sentence in Lost Angeles, the dark and depraved city in Hell where a beast known as a Torment forces her to relive, night after night, the moment she killed her lover and put a bullet in her own skull.
Kat longs to make amends for her sins. So when the city’s Chief Administrator hires her to retrieve a stolen box with a mysterious power, offering to call off her Torment in return, she gets the chance to do just that.
But if Kat has learned one thing, it’s that every case has a wrinkle. As she trawls drug dens, casinos, and fighting pits in search of the thief, she discovers that both box and city contain secrets darker than she could ever have imagined. And with time running out, Kat must choose between her own desire for peace and the fate of the world above in Hell’s Detective, the electrifying new mystery from award-winning author Michael Logan.
What the critics say
“More fun than a barrel of flying monkeys. A fiendishly clever mash-up of noir and horror with a soupçon of hard-boiled humor. Set in a superbly realized corner of hell known as Lost Angeles, Logan has delivered a helluva great read.”
―Eric Van Lustbader, New York Times bestselling author of Any Minute Now
“I took Hell’s Detective down to the beach. It was a perfect splash of shade on a sunny day. Michael Logan has created a sinfully good noir mystery. Think Raymond Chandler meets Stephen King. Highly recommended!”
―Rebecca Cantrell, New York Times bestselling author
“Logan’s vision of hell is violent, gritty, and filled with evil. Incorporated into an action-packed mystery, this extreme universe should delight fans of Simon R. Green or Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files.”
― Library Journal
“Logan takes readers on a dark-comedy tour of a Hell beyond our wildest dreams with this unpredictable detective novel.”
“[An] entertaining mystery… Logan has a knack for crafting lines that will gratify noir fans.”
