Author Thomas Hewlett's third book in his supernatural neo-noir series, Twelve Stakes, arrives this year and to celebrate we are giving two lucky Horror Asylum readers the chance to win a special signed copy of both One Death at a Time (Twelve Stakes Book 1) and Darkness of the Spirit (Twelve Stakes Book 2). They are compelling and well-written, dark and gritty, and undeniably fun.
"I write books for people who like their humans a little monstrous and their monsters a little human." Hewlett had his first drink when he was seventeen and blacked out shortly after finishing it. He woke up thirteen years later, with little to show for his life besides a notebook full of unwritten books—and thus Twelve Stakes was born.
About the Twelve Stakes series:
“A funky mix of mystery and hardboiled noir with modern fantasy and supernatural horror thrown in.”
Los Angeles, 1948. Detective Jack Strayhorn is killed while chasing down a suspect in the Black Dahlia murders all by himself. Los Angeles, 2010. Jack Strayhorn is back in L.A. as a private investigator with a simple mission: catch the bad guys and try not to kill any innocent people along the way. To him and his kind, human blood is the strongest drug in the world. Fortunately for Jack, he found the secret group within AA dedicated to helping Vampires survive the madness and destruction of their disease. When a city councilmember with ties to a drug-dealing Fae clan is found dead in his home and the woman lying next to him is Jack’s current missing person’s case, tracking down the ghostlike hitman will test him like nothing before. But this time, Jack won’t be alone. With the help of his unique powers of investigation, his magically talented friends, and a Medical Examiner with a few secrets of her own, Jack will face down a gang of outlaw biker werewolves, spell-casting Fae high on pixie dust, and an underground order of Vampires intent on ruling the world. As Jack learned long ago, the only way to get through eternity is one death a time.
