Huey Dusk-Recommended! For a dark, hardboiled, and funny read.

Written By: admin - Feb• 14•11

When we hear the word “noir,” we’re usually whisked away to thoughts of Raymond Chandler, The Maltese Falcon, Double Indemnity and Mildred Pierce. But clowns? Well, certainly not the FIRST thing that came to mind, but after we received and read the manuscript for Huey Dusk our minds have broadened quite a bit. We hope you find this combination of humor and grit as appealing as we did. Untreed Reads will be bringing you more outings with our new, favorite clown in the months to come.


Girl Scouts with guns. Maniacal mimes. Murder. Intrigue. Big floppy shoes. It’s all in a day’s work for Huey Dusk, clown and private dick. In his latest case, Dusk discovers there are plans afoot to rub him out. Can he locate his would-be killers before he ends up a puddle of greasepaint? Part noir, part humor and more fun than a three-ring circus, HUEY DUSK will change how you look at mysteries. http://www.untreedreads.com/?s=huey+dusk

P Lovecraft.
