Now Available: The Posthumous Man by Jake Hinkson (New Links Added)


When Elliot Stilling killed himself, he thought his troubles were over. Then the ER doctors revived him. It’s infatuation at first sight when he meets his nurse, Felicia Vogan, a strange young woman with a weakness for sad sacks and losers. After she helps Elliot escape from the hospital, she takes him back to her place. He’s happy to go with her, even when she leads him straight to a gang planning a million dollar heist. Does Felicia just want Elliot to protect her from the outfit’s psychotic leader, Stan the Man? Or is Elliot being set up to take the hard fall? One thing’s for sure: if he’s going to survive this long night of deceit and murder, Elliot will have to finally face himself and his own dark past.

From BEAT to a PULP and available through Createspace and Amazon print, and eBook.

Nerd of Noir review at Spinetingler Magazine.

Praise for Jake Hinkson's latest noir hit:

THE POSTHUMOUS MAN is every bit as crazily entertaining as Hinkson's hard-rocking debut, HELL ON CHURCH STREET, and it reads like a streamliner rocketing across the Bonneville Salt Flats. --Scott Phillips, award winning author of THE ICE HARVEST and THE ADJUSTMENT.
In THE POSTHUMOUS MAN the existential and theological themes buried inside the best noir are pulled to the surface, hungry for air and clutching a last chance at redemption. Jake Hinkson crafts this bullet-fast novella with qualities emblematic of my favorite best crime fiction: empathy, gravity and brevity. Much appreciated and highly recommended. --Eddie Muller, president of the Film Noir Foundation and Shamus-award winning author of THE DISTANCE.

This sounds fantastic. Hell on Church Street was a top five read for me this year and I can't wait for this.

Chad Eagleton said...

That sounds great and what a fanastic freaking cover.

What a great title!

David Cranmer said...

Chris, Agree on CHURCH STREET. That knocked my socks off and you will find THE POSTHUMOUS MAN is another solid noir entry.

Thanks, Chad. Jake found the picture and Little d added the rest.

Thought the same thing, Patti. Like it should have been an old John Garfield or Robert Mitchum film title.

David where were you educated? Did you ever think of asking for a refund since they only taught you how to do one thing?

Your prose reads like the most tedious set of tautologies. I bet mama cried when her diaphragm slipped did she get her money back.

I'm sure it's just my 86-year-old dementia riddled mother having fun, Randy.

The GED is implemented in the USA and Canada. It is composed of five subjects: Reading, Writing, Math, Science and Social Sciences. This test is administered within a total seven hours. This equivalency exam is offered annually. The GED is the ticket of many individuals without a better training and/or job opportunities. High school dropouts seeking advancement and jobs with higher pay can get entry to training programs given the required GED results.
