THE ROAD TO HELL

NO. 1 BESTSELLING MYSTERY ANTHOLOGY

"The Road to Hell" collects four stories by Paul Levine, the Edgar-nominated author of the bestselling Jake Lassiter series. Levine's heroes travel dark and dangerous paths as they confront devilish and powerful villains. The journeys are by land, by sea, and in one case, perhaps only in the mind.

In "El Valiente en el Infierno," (The Brave One in Hell), a 13-year-old Mexican boy tells his own story as he makes a treacherous midnight crossing into California in search of his father. The boy's courage is tested when he runs into two gun-toting American vigilantes, and the confrontation will change all of them forever.

"Development Hell" imagines a pitch session in which a bedraggled Edgar Allan Poe squares off with a slick Hollywood producer who wants to make a cheesy slasher flick out of "The Pit and the Pendulum." Bookgasm praised the story as "going straight to the funny bone."

"A Hell of a Crime" echoes with notions of "The Twilight Zone." A prosecutor prepares for a homicide trial while being pestered by his domineering mother, a famous lawyer herself. Just what role did she play in the murder? It's a mystery with a punch to the gut at the end.

Two of the author's best-loved characters, Steve Solomon and Victoria Lord, appear in "Solomon & Lord: To Hell and Back." The ethically-challenged Steve Solomon and the very proper Victoria Lord are mismatched Miami law partners. Steve says he's going fishing with Manuel Cruz, a sleazy con man. Victoria knows that Cruz embezzled a bundle from Steve's favorite client and is an unlikely fishing buddy. So just what is Steve up to now? Something between mischief and murder. The three of them head for deep water and dark troubles.

Also included: an excerpt of "Mortal Sin," one of the award-winning Jake Lassiter novels. "Recalling the work of Carl Hiaasen, this thriller races to a smashing climax." - Library Journal.

Finally, there's an excerpt of "Solomon vs. Lord," the first of the series nominated for the Edgar, Macavity, International Thriller, and James Thurber awards. Here's what number one bestselling author Harlan Coben had to say: "Hiaasen meets Grisham in the court of last retort. A sexy, wacky, wonderful thriller with humor and heart."

PRAISE FOR THE FICTION OF PAUL LEVINE

"Mystery writing at its very, very best." - Larry King, USA TODAY

"Irreverent...genuinely clever...great fun." - The New York Times Book Review

"Just the remedy for those who can't get enough Spenser and miss Travis McGee terribly." - St. Petersburg Times

"Genuinely chilling." - Washington Post Book World

"Take one part John Grisham, two parts Carl Hiaasen, throw in a dash of John D. MacDonald, and voila!" - Tulsa World

"Wildly entertaining blend of raucous humor and high adventure." - St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"Cracking good action-mystery...funny, sardonic, and fast-paced." - Detroit Free Press

AUTHOR INTERVIEW

Did you come up with the idea of an anthology of short stories and then write them?

Not at all. The stories were already written, but not doing anything much, just lounging around in the Short Stories folder on my computer, eating pizza and watching Netflix. So I decided it was time they earned their keep.

Why did you choose those particular stories?

They all have a common thread of an element of humour, albeit subtle humour for the most part. Two of them are crime, (Sleuthing for Beginners and A Girl's Best Friend), one is fantasy (A Peaceful Death) and the other has a romantic subplot (The Muse). So I figured there was enough variety to keep readers from being bored.

Sleuthing for Beginners and A Peaceful Death were short-listed in short story competitions, but had the sulks because their moment of glory was over before it even started. So to appease them I included them to give them some exposure.

What is it you enjoy about writing short stories?

Because most of my time now is spent on the marathon of writing novels, I love the sprinting exercise of writing short stories. It's a refreshing change of pace to be able to see the ending as soon as you start writing. The discipline of short story writing is excellent training for novel writing - it teaches you to be economical and succinct in your word choice, to focus on the story at hand and not get side-tracked and to write in such a way that readers can read between the lines without you having to spell things out.

Short stories are as much an exercise on what to leave out as to what to put in. It's a real art that only comes with practice.

Will you be publishing more short stories in the future?

I would certainly like to, but I don't know when. Finding the time to write them is the challenge.



Chrysalis: Zac Tremble Investigates (Series One Case One)

Marc Grainger has gone missing, wife, Felicity, employs Zac to find him. This case file introduces us to Zac: thirty, gay and labouring under some pretty heavy expectations. He's watched over by Elizabeth, the secretary he inherited, along with everything else. Mrs Chan does her best to keep home for him, Matt is burning a candle, but more often, burning his fingers, and Joe thinks Zac is Frank, Zac's dearly departed father.

The Zac Tremble Case Files are a barely plausible, sometimes farcical, occasionally operatic journey through Zac's world; his highs and lows, successes and failures and the emergence of one of the most touching (and funny) love affairs in PI history (do PIs fall in love?).

Chrysalis is the first Zac Tremble Case File in the series Zac Tremble Investigates; the case files of the gay, Soho-based PI Zachary Tremble.

I sincerely hope that you enjoy the story. Feedback is especially welcome, and I'm thrilled with the feedback I have received so far, thank you! I would be delighted to hear from you.

She can see them, and they herDead People Can TalkJanuary can talk to dead people, a gift she's inherited from her mother's line. You'll probably call her a psychic and to some people, that can be exciting. But January's a reluctant psychic because, really--who wants to see dead people?

EXCERPTTHEY WERE already kissing when January fumbled the door open. They fell against it, their mouths melting together, their tongues exploring.

She had wondered since she first laid eyes on Ash what it would be like to kiss him, and the reality was so much sweeter than she could have dreamed.

He was kissing her all over, stroking the back of her neck, nuzzling her lips, her ears. She leaned her neck back for more, loving the heat of his lips on her body, giving herself up to the sensations. He picked her up and she wound her legs around him, feeling light as a feather in his arms.

He carried her into the bedroom and placed her gently on her back in the bed.

"How did you know which door it was?" she asked, between kisses.

"Detective," he said, his mouth too busy to say much more. He moved his hands under her blouse, sliding upward to her full breasts, kneading them as he cupped each one. His hands moved behind her back and unhooked her bra in one smooth gesture. His fingertips slipped underneath and brushed her erect nipples lightly, sending shocks of pure pleasure through her body.
