The Last Laugh

The Last Laugh

(2016)
A collection of stories by

 
From France, to Spain, to the north east of England, hit men, gangsters, corrupt cops, drunks, punks, and petty thieves all tumble toward the abyss. The stories in The Last Laugh are vivid and violent slices of Brit Grit and international noir, full of gaudy characters and dialogue sharp enough to cut your throat. The Last Laugh is a violent and blackly comic look at life through a shot glass darkly.

"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)

"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)

'Brazill isn't just a writer; he's a poet and you can take any of his stories and write a master's thesis on just the language employed.'- Les Edgerton (Bomb!, The Bitch)
