Praise for B.R. Stateham 

“Cooler than a fridge full of beer…”“ 

This is modern noir at its very best…” 

“B.R. Stateham is at the top of his game right now…” 

“Lenny may be the best thing B.R. Stateham has ever written, and as readers of his work will know, that’s quite a high bar to hit.” 

“B.R. Stateham has created an action packed tale - another winner from Fahrenheit Thirteen…” 

B.R. Stateham is a fourteen-year-old boy trapped in a seventy-year-old body. But his enthusiasm and boyish delight in anything mysterious and/or unknown continue. 

Writing novels, especially detectives, is just the avenue of escape which keeps the author’s mind sharp and inquisitive. He’s published a ton of short stories in online magazines like Crooked, Darkest Before the Dawn, Abandoned Towers, Pulp Metal Magazine, Suspense Magazine, Spinetingler Magazine, Near to The Knuckle, A Twist of Noir, Angie’s Diary, Power Burn Flash, and Eastern Standard Crime. He writes both detective/mysteries, as well as science-fiction and fantasy.

  4. I hope everyone likes the novel. I think Lenny is a bit unusual of a character. An action-hero . . . yes; but one with a lot of ghosts from out of his past living in his head. And it's not your usual police-procedural story. I made sure of that.

  5. This book sounds great. I love books on taking down people that do wrong.
