Montana Noir

The darker side of the Last Best Place

Montana Noir

 

The cover of  the new fiction anthology Montana Noir features an image shot by me and my buddy Jeff Demarais somewhere in the Big Sky state. The collection includes a murderer’s row of Montana writers who’ve delivered tales seldom involving fly-fishing epiphanies or any degree of horse whispering. On sale now, so order a copy through your local independent bookseller here.

In addition to shooting the cover photo I’m also a contributor, covering the Great Falls corner of the state with a story called “Ace In the Hole.” I’m pretty excited to be in such heady company. The Mystery Writers of America recently announced that “Ace in the Hole” is one of five finalists for a 2018 Edgar award in the short story category. Fingers crossed.
