Teaser Tuesday: Secondhand Smoke by M. Louis



I'm up later that morning at the crack of ten. . . . I look out at the gray skies and mist as I sip my first cup of joe.

Secondhand Smoke by M. Louis. Jake Brand is a 21st Century Portland private eye and Louis makes the most of both the city and the best private eye traditions in his neo-noir thriller. There are hints of everyone's favorites, from Philip Marlowe, Lew Archer, maybe some of the guys from L.A. Confidential, and even a little Jason Bourne.



Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB at Books and a Beat, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.

"...up at the crack of ten..." I love that! Sounds like a thriller with a sense of humor.
