I reviewed Adrian Cole’s Tough Guys at The Slaughtered Bird:
The publisher, Parallel Universe Publications, cleverly selected the best novella in the collection to be the first: Wait for the Ricochet. It describes the travails of Nick Nightmare, a private eye whose cases deal with the occult in its most sinister aspects. While the Urban Fantasy genre is stuffed to the gills with such stories, Wait for the Ricochet blows them out of the water in sheer thrills; this is a fully thought-out world, one that we only get a glimpse of in this all-too-short tale. I don’t dare give any more away.
You really need to click through and read the whole review. You’ll find out why soon, I promise.
