Errol Black

Created by Simon Swift

It's the forties (or is it the thirties?), and New York city private eye ERROL BLACK talks the talk and walks the expected walk, in a proposed trilogy of "indie" books by Simon Swift.

I say "proposed," because the third book, The Gold Gate Goodbye, never surfaced, although a novella, Kiss Him Goodbye, which retells events in the first book from another perspective, was released in 2012.

The author claims his work has been compared to genre masters, Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett, of course. The influence is obvious, but he doesn't mention if the comparisons were favorable. My guess is "not," given that words like "sloppy" and "poor editing" pop up far more often, even on Amazon.
