I have a story up at the fabulous Flash Fiction Offensive. A Conversational Robbery first appeared in my second short story collection, Bullets, Teeth, & Fists 2. You can read it at FFO here.

The second Bullets is full of nourishing noir shorts and novelettes. You can buy the beast HERE.

Punk Noir Magazine published a short one of mine – The Kid with the Sad Face

Think about your motives before you act …

You can read the beast HERE.

“Psychologically complex.”
“This book has some serious grip.” – David S. Atkinson
“They’re barely in their teens, but already they’re streetwise, courageous and honourable, qualities that are tested to the nerve-wracking limit in this gritty coming-of-age tale from a master of description. Compelling reading.” – Brendan Gisby
“Beech expertly balances the nostalgia of childhood adventures with the brutality of life in a very grown-up and dark town. City of Forts deserves to sit equal with the greats as a piece of entertainment and a study of modern life’s struggle.” – Aidan Thorn

“An excellent slow burn novel.” – Keith Nixon

Jason Beech’s City Of Forts masterfully blends urban noir with coming of age drama. Tense, atmospheric, and haunting.” – Paul D. Brazill

Bullets, Teeth, & Fists 2 is FREE

DOWNLOAD Bullets, Teeth & Fists 2
Bullets, Teeth, & Fists 2 is FREE from 1-5 May 2017. The thing is populated by good lads, bad lads, nutters, and quite a few deaths. There’s the one about the bored cop who needs to create an exciting story to tell his pal. Another about a social wallflower who blossoms on the tube train when he faces a skinhead with an attitude. And the one about the robber who heists a Saudi royal’s London convoy to pay for a hitman to kill his sister’s man is a rollercoaster.

You can download Bullets, Teeth & Fists 2 for FREE tomorrow at Amazon.
