9780692499337: Made For Murder

Just picture this – the hunky casino dealer that socialite Helena Swann meets in Las Vegas turns around and marries her stepsister for money. But Helena starts an affair with him anyway. And now she discovers that a Bible-quoting P.I. suspects him of two brutal murders. Tension mounts as our mercenary beauty finds herself caught between a rich fiancé and a murderous, but charming conman named Samson Porter – a/k/a Shoo-fly. What would you do? Help Shoo-fly bribe the detective? Turn him in to the cops? Or would you run like hell before he decides to cut your throat? These are questions Helena Swann must answer in this edgy neo-noir thriller.

From the Author:

In Made for Murder, a lethal ex-con romances and marries a San Francisco socialite in a bold bid for prestige and power -- but forgets to suppress his killer instinct.I think of Made for Murder as a noir odyssey through the mythic American towns of Las Vegas, San Francisco, Miami Beach and Newport, R.I. In part, it is a homage to those potent film noir concepts of the '40s and '50s that influence my writing to this day. Instead of featuring a femme fatale, however, my novel features Sam Porter as the homme fatal to a beautiful but corrupt heroine, Helena Swann. Paul McGoran

About the Author:

Paul McGoran lives in Newport, Rhode Island. In his life before fiction, he was a laboratory technician, a Russian language interpreter for the U. S. Navy, a career marketing executive, a management consultant, and a day trader. As a writer in the crime genre since 2005, his inspiration comes in equal parts from spending way too much time watching black and white film noir from the forties and fifties, and from reading way too many hard-boiled detective stories. A short story by Paul, The Thanks You Get, was published by the U.K. webzine PulpPusher. His second novel, The Breastplate of Faith and Love, will revisit several characters featured in Made for Murder and will introduce a series P. I. named Stafford Boyle. Paul is currently working on a third novel which takes Stafford Boyle back to his old hometown to solve the revenge murder of the bully who terrorized his childhood. Watch for a collection of Paul's shorter noir fiction, Paying For Pain, coming soon from NEW PULP PRESS.
