Grey Noise: Goldtooth Released on Amazon Today

       Last month, I finished the first draft of The Horseman’s Dream, which has been an ongoing project for a decade.  In the interests of distance from the manuscript, I decided to shelve it for a month before returning to it and use the time to write the second novelette in the Grey Noise series.  This episode gives us more insight into Patrick’s past and what has happened to him to make him the way he is.  In the six months since he murdered a singer, he has been free of the dreaded grey noise, but now it has returned.  In his attempt to relieve his affliction without resorting to murder, he befriends someone even more dangerous than he is and falls for someone he knows he shouldn’t.  When the moment of truth arrives, will Patrick bolt or bite the bullet?Get your copy today for only $0.99 by clicking here.

My New Novelette “Grey Noise” is FREE Today on Amazon

What happens when a disturbed sound engineer snaps?

Patrick McDonagh is a Liverpool sound tech who truly understands the old saying that “silence is golden”. Highly-skilled behind a mixing desk, but undervalued due to his lack of charisma and social graces, he remains forever on the fringes of the music industry, picking up whatever crumbs he can to look after his mother in their terraced house by the docks. What most people don’t know about Patrick is that alongside the guitars, drums, bass and vocals, there has always been the mysterious grey noise and fortunately for everyone in his little black book, he’s always been able to ignore it … Until now.

As he decides whether to exact his vengeance upon the lead singer of Summer Seems So Far, the grey noise builds to a crescendo, inciting deadly violence and macabre scenes at their wildest gig yet. Find out whether Patrick survives his jaunt through the Glaswegian underworld to fulfil his dark agenda in this rock and roll crime novelette, written by the author of A Smaller Hell.

Excellent short story, delves in to the sometimes murky dangerous world of Rock music, drugs and unpredictable self important so called rock stars clutching at their miserable ego boosted existence, AJ writes with believability, a very enjoyable story, hope there’s much more to come.

Short and sweet but kept my attention till the end wish it had been a little longer. Great character and event description and darkly funny at times.
