Coming Soon: Cafe Midnight

Update! CAFE MIDNIGHT is now live. πŸ˜€ Here’s the LINK

Cafe Midnight 680A burned-out homicide cop. A mysterious diner. A dead body. What could possibly go wrong?

When that cop is Joe McGwire? Everything. Back on duty after a deadly shootout, Joe and his new best friend, Insomnia, hit the streets. Drawn to a diner called Cafe Midnight, Joe walks straight into trouble.

Welcome to Cafe Midnight, where the coffee’s hot, you can still smoke, the payphone costs a nickel, and famous detectives hang out looking for a case.

This short story is a fond homage to film noir and the detective novels of yesteryear. It’s a tongue-in-cheek tale about a hard-driven homicide detective and the denizens of the dark he meets while investigating his latest murder.

As soon as it goes live on Amazon, I’ll let y’all know. Who’s your favorite literary or movie detective?

  1. OMG, that sounds awesome. Can’t wait to read it. I love the old crime novels – whether or not they have a detective in them.

    Phillip Marlowe, Sam Spade, Mike Hammer (man, Mickey Spillane could write). And then there are Perry Mason and Doug Selby (Erle Stanley Gardner’s creations). So much awesomeness in those five characters, I can’t pick just one.

      It was fun to write. Do you need a guest post on the Unpublished Writer for Monday? πŸ˜‰ I could talk about the inspiration behind it. πŸ˜†

      Add Ellery Queen and Sherlock to that list and mine would closely mirror yours. πŸ™‚

    Fabulous! I love the old detective movies – with that film noir vibe!! The blurb sounds amazing, Silver!

    Yes, to all those B.E. named – as for the old TV detectives, I miss them dearly (Cannon, McMillian and Wife, Rockford).

  3. Liza says:

    Love all the ones B.E. named, but my favorite literary detective is Eve Dallas. Know she isn’t old school by any stretch of the imagination, but she is totally kick-ass all day long.

    Off to stalk Amazon now…
