Kill Me Quick!

(2015)
A Novella by

 
We're all lying in the gutter. But some of us are staring at the spaces between the stars...

Seatown may not have a lot going for it - apart from the Roy Orbison lookalikes and Super Seventies Special every Thursday night, of course - but it is at least the place Mark Hammonds calls home. And after a decade away, it's the place he returns to when he has nowhere else to go.

From dead bikers to dodgy drug deals, from one downbeat bar to another, from strippers to gangsters and back again: the luckless former musician bounces from one misdeed to the next along with a litany of old acquaintances, almost as though he never left. And if only he can shake off everybody who wants to kill, maim or otherwise hurt him, maybe he could even think about staying.

After all, there's no place like home, eh?

Praise for Paul Brazill:
"If you took Ken Bruen's candor, the best of Elmore Leonard's dialogues, sprinkled in some Irvine Welsh, and dragged it all through the dirtiest ditch in South London, the result will be something akin to Brazill's writing." - Gabino Iglesias (author of Zero Saints and Gutmouth)
"Visceral, foul-mouthed and blisteringly funny, Paul D Brazill creates a sleazy underworld inhabited by dodgy London geezers, Geordie hard men and the occasional shark. Highly recommended." - Lesley Ann Sharrock (author of The Seventh Magpie)
"A broad range of cultural strands come together in the melting pot and form a delicious stew of criminal adventure... The observations are sharp and the characters create small nuclear explosions as they collide with each other." - Nigel Bird (author of Southsiders)
"Unashamedly entertains you while sticking two fingers right up in your stupid face." - Ryan Bracha (author of Strangers Are just Friends You Haven't Killed Yet)
"The brilliantly named characters, crackling dialogue and dark humour jump out." - Keith Nixon (author of The Fix and I'm Dead Again)
