Atlanta Deathwatch – Coming Soon

Atlanta Deathwatch – Coming Soon by Ralph Dennis

The first novel in the unforgettable, long lost series by Ralph Dennis is finally back in print… after being coveted for years by collectors of the very best in hardboiled fiction.

Jim Hardman was a mediocre Atlanta cop until he was wrongly accused of corruption and thrown off the force. Now he works as an unlicensed PI, trouble-shooter and bodyguard…often partnered with his drinking buddy Hump Evans, a black, ex-NFL player who supports his playboy lifestyle by working as hired muscle.

Hardman is hired by The Man, a black mobster, to investigate the murder of his white girlfriend, a college student. It’s a case that plunges Hardman and Evans into the center of a violent street war that stretches from Atlanta’s seedy back alleys to the marbled corridors of power.

This new edition includes an introduction by Joe R. Lansdale, the New York Times bestselling author of the Hap & Leonard series of crime novels.

    Reviews For Atlanta Deathwatch – Coming Soon

    Atlanta Deathwatch – Coming Soon 5.0

    His prose was muscular, swift and highly readable. Like Chandler and Hammett before him, Dennis was trying to do something different with what was thought of as throwaway literature.

    Among the best series books around. The dialogue is marvelously realistic.

    Ralph Dennis is an underappreciated master. His Hardman series is one of the finest in the P.I. genre.

    The Hardman books are by far the best of the men’s action-adventure series.

    Expert writing, plus good plotting and an unusual degree of sensitivity. Ralph Dennis has mastered the genre and supplied top entertainment.
