Down to No Good

(The second book in the PI Charlie Miner series)
A novel by

An edgy and intense thriller with a touch of the paranormal.

Private investigator Charlie Miner, freshly revived from his own murder, gets a call from Homicide Detective Dave Putnam. Self-styled "psychic to the stars" Tamara Gale has given crucial information about three murders, and the brass thinks it makes the Department look bad. Dave wants Charlie to help figure out the angle, since he has first-hand experience with the inexplicable. Trouble is, Charlie, just weeks after his full-death experience, once again has severe cognitive problems and may get them both killed.

At once a riveting mystery and a completely unique character study, DOWN TO NO GOOD will both captivate you and work its way into your heart.

"Earl Javorsky's DOWN TO NO GOOD is wildly original, wildly energetic, wildly funny - it's just straight up wild, and I mean that in the best possible way.
- Lou Berney, Edgar Award-winning author of THE LONG AND FARAWAY GONE

"DOWN TO NO GOOD is a deep dive into the weird and wild that had me staying up far later than normal. A whacked-out thrill ride filled with psychics and cops and a drug-loving PI who just can't stay dead. What's not to love?"
- Brett Battles, USA Today bestselling author

"Will tear your head off and make you like it." - Bookreporter

"DOWN TO NO GOOD begins with the central character dead and then brings him back to life to face a very bad day. That's Earl Javorsky's world: mind-boggling, dark, hilarious, and unforgettable. If you haven't read him, well, it's your own fault." - Timothy Hallinan, bestselling author of the Poke Rafferty series and the Junior Bender series

"Earl Javorsky's DOWN TO NO GOOD is a wild, surreal, fast-paced ride and an excellent new entry in this powerful series. The vivid, engaging prose hooked me on page one, and I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. If you're looking for an original, enlightening PI series for the 21st century, look no further than this one."
- David Bell, author of BRING HER HOME

"Down to No Good is a darkly comic, gonzo noir PI tale that kept me turning the pages and laughing out loud. Drug-addicted, supernaturally blessed/cursed private detective Charlie Miner is an entertaining character, a kind of Hunter S. Thompson injected with a dose of Neil Gaiman-style mythology - readers just have to see what he's going to do next."
- Cate Holahan, USA Today bestselling author of The Widower's Wife and Lies She Told

"Earl Javorsky is a special kind of writer, and Down to No Good is a special kind of mystery. Not only is it a fine mystery that dips into big ideas like death, the prevalence of hoaxes, and the sometimes razor-thin line between the known and the unknown, but it's also a drug-fueled excavation of the human heart. The writing is alternatively clear and hallucinogenic as Javorsky switches points of view with ease between two equally compelling leads. If you're looking for a paint by numbers crime novel, look elsewhere. But if you're looking for a powerful slice of entertaining dark noir that is will make you turn pages and think about the nature of reality as you do, this is your book."
- Hank Early, author of Heaven's Crooked Finger
