The Return of Lucas Hallam
I'm very pleased to announce that WILD NIGHT, Livia's first novel featuring her private eye character Lucas Hallam, is now available on Amazon for the Kindle. For those of you not familiar with Hallam, he's a cowboy stuntman in 1920s Hollywood who also works as a private investigator. He's a former Texas Ranger and Pinkerton agent and has appeared in three novels and numerous short stories, both mysteries and Westerns. WILD NIGHT, the first Hallam novel, won the Shamus Award and the American Mystery Award as the Best Paperback Original of 1987. It's been out of print for a number of years, but now it's back and I hope a lot of new readers will make Hallam's acquaintance. I'm biased, of course, but I think the three books are great hardboiled PI novels. There should be more Hallam news coming up in the near future as well.
