In the tradition of Chinatown and L.A. Confidential, writer Simon Oliver explores a hidden world of corruption where money, sex, politics and crime all add up to the same thing.
In the desert just south of the border, young women are turning up murdered. No suspects. No clues. And authorities seem uninterested in uncovering any. When ex-private eye Jack Cohen is hired to find one missing girl, he is drawn back into the shadow world between North and South. And there, he must face the terrible tragedy in his past that he’s been running from all these years. Featuring the gritty, stylized artwork of Jason Latour, NOCHE ROJA is an gripping noir tale of how the insatiable craving for cheap consumer goods leads to the ultimate cheapening of life itself.Review Quotes
"Simon Oliver deftly merges traditional noir with a torn-from-the-headlines story. Jason Latour's stark artwork conveys the bleak setting perfectly.
Noir is timeless, and this book proves it!"
–– Christos Gage, writer of AREA 10 and Avengers Academy
“The beating and bloody heart of classic noir. With stark, journalistic detail, Oliver and LaTour show us a place
where the one thing no one can afford is a conscience.”
–– Christopher Farnsworth, author of Blood Oath
