Hobbs, Roger.  Ghostman (2013)
Truhen, Aidan.  The Price You Pay* (2018)
*”There’s as much stream of consciousness in Jack’s narration as there is straight-ahead noir, but that’s much of the appeal, at least for readers looking for more than a linear, good guy–bad guy whodunit. Give this to anyone who knows Roger Hobbs’ brilliant Ghostman.” — Booklist
BUT – PW says ” Price’s smart-alecky comments and penchant for awkward comparisons (“She looks like Didi Fraser if Didi had lived without makeup and eaten raw bear from the moment she gave up the nipple”) will put off some readers. Those looking for an amusingly snarky antihero lead will be better off with serial killer Dexter Morgan.”
