Everything Under The Moon

“This is the werewolf as you haven't seen him before: talking like a Richard Kadrey novel, walking through Charlie Huston's dark streets, and snarling like a Jim Harrison creature.”

-Stephen Graham Jones, author of Mongrels

"A briskly paced, splatter-filled crime novel to delight fans of directors Tarantino and Rodriguez." KIRKUS

Lucky supreme, a novel of many crimes

A legendary tattoo shop, a city gone mad in the grip of gentrification, and a man with tacos, a steel ball, and an attitude has to keep it all together.

 

“The bastard lovechild of Charles Bukowski and Raymond Chandler,  Lucky Supreme  is a novel so good you’ll want to ink it into your skin.”  -Craig Johnson, author of the  Walt Longmire Mysteries      "As hip and cool as the neon rain-slicked streets of Portland. Darby Holland is a modern hero in the mold of Sam Spade and Marlowe only with more tattoos and in steel-toed boots. A funny and very gritty book with cool folks, cool music, and wonderful sense of place."  –Ace Atkins, New York Times Bestselling author of The Innocents and Robert B. Parker's Slow Burn     “Lucky Supreme is one hell of a book. I didn't know anyone could do noir like this. Now I know Jeff Johnson can.” — Joe Lansdale ,  Edgar Award -winning author     "What wonderful Northwest noir. LUCKY SUPREME cruises through Portland's underworld with a raunchy grace and an unfailing sense of black humor. I loved it."  -New York Times bestselling & 3-time Edgar Award-winning author T. Jefferson Parker     “Jeff Johnson is the real deal. His work is fast and funny, down and dirty—one moment as smooth as 18-year-old bourbon and the next as rough as a country road. A great talent, a pleasure to read.”  –Brad Smith, Dashiell Hammett Prize-nominee     “Jeff Johnson writes with a poet's rhythm, a boxer's attitude and an artist's sense of style and flair.”  -Norman Green, Shamus Award Winner of The Last Gig  "Johnson launches the first of a noir trilogy with this highly original caper novel. Darby Holland is the proprietor of the Lucky Supreme, a tattoo parlor in the Old Town neighborhood of Portland, Ore., where he and his artists, a gang of societal misfits, have created their own niche within this gentrifying community. Johnson, a veteran tattoo artist, captures the conflict between the two cultures perfectly without any false sentiment . . . The inventive, unorthodox Darby effectively marshals his forces against thugs, officials, and even federal agents in this amusing crime tale."-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
