Adam Jordan

Created by Joseph Koenig

"Beauty was the cheap accolade that newsmen rewarded automatically to female victims of murder."

-- Adam's newshawk cynicism is in order in False Negative

Hot shot reporter ADAM JORDAN gets canned when he tries to fudge a news story, and the only gig he can land is for the bottom-feeding New York tabloid Real Detective, where they send him to cover the apparent murder -- with kinky and therefore headline-worthy undertones -- of a beauty pageant contestant found strangled on an Atlantic City beach.

Koenig nails the 1950s Jersey Shore, and the juicy dialogue is straight outta Pulpville in False Negative (2012), his one appearance to date.


  • "Razor-sharp pros... and a fast-moving plot will please Mickey Spillane and Cornell Woolrich fans. With any luck, readers wonít have to wait another 20 years for Koenigís next book."
