Masterful Blend of SciFi and Noir Mystery –

Is Warren Hammond a mystery writer or a SciFi author?  Damn the genre labels.  Mystery novel, crime novel, who gives a rat’s ass?  This is a great read, regardless of what you call it.  (Don’t get me started…)

Dark Side of Lagarto

KOP reads like a modern-day chronicle of Earth—gritty realism, cynical truth—only set on the ghetto planet of Lagarto.  A captivating crime noir driven by a derelict Kop vacillating between blind brutality and a deep desire to make a difference.  Kop is a refreshingly honest approach to Sci-Fi.

You mystery buffs will broaden your horizons with this one—so will you SciFi fans.

Break out of those shells and go for it!

I highly recommend KOP.  I suspect that Ex-KOP and KOP Killer will be equally rewarding.

As always, my blatant self-promotion as a writer of mystery books follows:

Dark Side of Sunset Pointe – A Lance Underphal Mystery is available in e-book & paperback on Amazon.

Watch for the upcoming release of the second in the Lance Underphal Mystery series, Flight of the Tarantula Hawk.  And yes it is mystery, a paranormal mystery, to be more precise.
