Coming in February from Down & Out Books: ALL OF THEM TO BURN by Beau Johnson
By: Down & Out Books
About ALL OF THEM TO BURN …
Darkness is an attribute most of us rally against. It can consume. It can achieve. But if we so choose, it can also be held at bay. Enter Bishop Rider and the evil he's chosen to obliterate since his family is taken from him. Operating outside the law, circumventing a system beyond repair, Bishop stalks this darkness the only way he knows how. Not only because these men deserve what he's become, but because of a message he attempted to create has come back to haunt him, now, after all these years. It's this story, along with other, unconnected tales that populate All of them to Burn.
Come, meet Rider for the first time. Come, meet Rider for the last time.
Come, watch the darkness burn.
Advance praise for ALL OF THEM TO BURN …
"Beau Johnson is equal parts slick, hammering, poetic and caustic. His talent is to be admired; his words are to be read." —Ryan Sayles, author of the Richard Dean Buckner mysteries
"Compelling and smart, these wild stories are full of twisted characters and seedy scenes. This third in his series of connected shorts may be Beau Johnson's best, yet." —Marietta Miles, author of May and After the Storm
"All of Them to Burn is a Molotov cocktail of classic crime fiction, but one with a sharp modern twist." —Paul D. Brazill, author of Last Year's Man and A Case of Noir
"Nothing can prepare you for the darkness in these stories and nothing can make you turn away once you start reading. All of Them to Burn is an excellent collection."
"These chilling short stories—many featuring the return of Bishop Rider—drop us into the darkest depths of human suffering and ruin. Beau Johnson can spin the most brutal of tales with raw emotion, savage honesty, and fierce humor. A standout collection from a seasoned storyteller."
