A novel by

 
 
Murder is trending. Hipsters are getting slashed to pieces in the hippest neighborhood in New York: Williamsburg, Brooklyn. While Detectives Petrosino and Hadid hound local gangbangers, slacker reporter Tony Moran and his ex Magaly Fernandez get caught up in a missing person's case--one that might just get them hacked to death.

Filled with a cast of colorful characters and told with sardonic wit, this fast-moving, intricately plotted novel plays out against a backdrop of rapid gentrification, skyrocketing rents, and class tension. New Yorkers and anyone fascinated with the city will love the story's details, written like only a true native could. Entertaining to the last, this rollicking debut is sure to make Richie Narvaez a rising star on the mystery scene.

Praise for HIPSTER DEATH RATTLE:

"Richie Narvaez has created something that's been missing from recent fiction: a vivid, loving look at city living from the street view."--Sara Paretsky, award-winning author of Shell Game

"Hipster Death Rattle is a smart piece of work featuring the unlikely yet likeable hero Tony 'Chino' Moran. Fierce and funny...with a light touch that masks Narvaez's biting social commentary." --Reed Farrel Coleman, New York Times bestselling author of What You Break

"[Narvaez] has one of the most compelling writing styles I've come across in years." --Lawrence Kelter, author of Back to Brooklyn
