Author Tony Knighton’s latest release, Happy Hour and Other Philadelphia Cruelties, is out today in e-book format through Crime Wave Press! Here is the collection’s description courtesy of the publisher:

A young grifter steals an overcoat. As he discovers forty-thousand dollars in its inside pocket, the coat’s owners come after him. The action never stops as his pursuers seem to be both ahead and behind him at all times, killing and destroying everything in their wake to catch up with their money and the young thief.
Happy Hour is as breathless as writing can be.
Knighton’s debut novella is accompanied by a selection of short stories that can run with the best of American Noir literature. It’s cold out there, folks.

The novel features Knighton’s debut novella Happy Hour and a collection of other stories. My first exposure to Knighton’s writing was through his excellent story “Sunrise” in Grey Matter Press’ anthology Equilibrium Overturned. “Sunrise” was about a father who must navigate through a dangerous city ravaged by an environmental disaster in order to save his son’s life. The story was gritty, full of action, and packed an emotional punch that had me thinking about the story long after I was finished reading. I am looking forward to reading this collection as I love Knighton’s writing style and have been on a bit of a noir kick lately.

Purchase Happy Hour and Other Philadelphia Cruelties on Amazon. Print copies will be available at a later date.
