Grave Digger Blues, my most recent noir novel, is available in print and digital editions (scroll down).

Grave Digger Blues is a nasty, raunchy, rude-boy romp that I totally loved. In its sinister way it is very, very funny. The exquisitely rendered visuals and other enhancements are great. You’ll love it, especially if you hate the Beatles.” W.K. Stratton (Chasing the Rodeo, Boxing Shadows, Floyd Patterson: The Fighting Live of Boxing’s Invisible Champ)

surrealistic detective novel, noir, Jesse Sublett, Denis Johnson, James Ellroy
