Now middle age creeping up finds Tommy Mack edgy, jaded, and weary of his grisly trade. As he contemplates retirement, he is framed for the murder of Mr. Ogg's niece. Desperate, Tommy Mack enlists the aid of his friends, the mercurial D. Noble and burly Esquire to do battle with Mr. Ogg and his mercenary "dark suits." A new, better life filled with his passions for poetry and jazz drives Tommy Mack to the slambang climax where a few dark secrets about his past are unearthed. Told in spare, lean prose, Ask the Dice is a brisk, literate, and idiosyncratic noir. Mr. Lynskey's crime novels have been praised by such luminaries as James Crumley, Ken Bruen, and Megan Abbott. Robert Wade (Wade Miller) wrote in the San Diego Union-Tribune: "A new wave of young writers is experimenting with the old-style thriller...among the most promising is Ed Lynskey."

Blood DiamondsBy Ed LynskeyThis book is available in the following formats.  Please choose your preference from the menu below before proceeding to checkout. Mobi (Kindle)ePub (Sony / Nook / iPad / Kobo)PDF (Adobe) PRC (Mobipocket) Longtime grifter and suburbaniteJonas Blades works in a sash-and-door mill until he literally bumps into Jacquie Mantooth, a voluptuous schemer who is putting together a plan to pull off a big diamond heist. She recruits her new lover Jonas to be the wheelman, and they hammer out the final details with  their inside man, a blind courier named Mr. Buggs. On the heist day, Jonas double crosses Jacquie by ratting her out to the police and grabs the stolen diamonds all for him. While Jacquie pulls a nine-year prison bit, Jonas, fearful of discovery and arrest, decides to sit on the stolen diamonds. Meantime he buys a split-level and trains to work in the Information Technology field. When Jacquie gates out of prison, she tracks down Jonas with a few hard questions. Things are complicated by Jonas’s current girlfriend Rita Jo Chapelle, a younger version of Jacquie, and Cullen, Jacquie’s goon brother. Jonas picks up a dubious ally in Virgil Högman, Jacquie’s old boyfriend who knows about the heist and where they can find Jacquie. A four-way scramble punctuated with mayhem, betrayal, and murder ensues to see which victor ends up with the “blood diamonds.” A twisty plot, sharp dialogue, heady pace, and vivid characters all elevate Blood Diamonds to a compelling read for the fans of modern crime fiction and noir. Marketing blurb: A well-planned diamond heist falls apart and turns into a four-way bloody scramble among the thieves to grab the stolen diamonds.
