Coming in January: ‘ A Game Called Dead’

“A Game Called Dead”  the second Frank Nagler mystery is planned for a January release by my publisher, Imzadi Publishing.

 A sample:”

DEADCOVER715“The air was industrial, bruised, like water washed in oil, breath filtered through dirt and hung out to dry, a speckled white sheet upon which the city wiped its wet fingers.

The bare whistled moan of a morning transit train crossing Morris was wrapped in the soft fog of dawn, the colored day muted to gray, padded to silence.

On the eastern hills, life as blood-crimson sunlight leaked along the ridgeline and dripped down craggy slopes to pool on the valley floor.

An hour later Ironton Detective Frank Nagler leaned, arms crossed, on a metal door frame of a third-floor dormitory room at the New Jersey State College of Ironton. This place is too small to contain this horror, he thought coldly, as he stared into the still weak October sunlight that leaked past the window glass, through the fine dust and dried red spatter to cast pink, blotted shadows on the crowded, narrow gray floor.”

Then came the threat:

“Notagame. I can burn a city down. HASHTAG more2cum.”

How did Frank Nagler get here?

It started with “The Swamps of Jersey,” published by Imzadi Publishing.
