Sam Kelson

Created by Michael Wiley

Chicago private eye SAM KELSON cannot tell a lie.

Or keep his fucking mouth shut.

He took a bullet to the head while working as an undercover cop, and he’s been like that ever since, unable to tell a falsehood or keep it zipped. If you’ve ever wondered what would happen if you mouthed off like a fictional private eye all the time, and are considering trying it, you might want to give this darkly humoured series a spin.

Sam gets beat up a lot. And shot. And yet he continues to spill inconvenient truths and cracking wise.

They call it “disinhibition,” and it’s a real thing, but what it really means is that he’s probably not going to be your first choice for a private investigator.

Especially if you want your private things things to remain, uh, private.

And yet… he’s good at his job.

Or at least good enough, the author’s hoping, to hold down a proposed new series. Then again, the author is Michael Wiley, the Shamus Award-winning author of the Joe Kozmarski series, as well as the Daniel Turner and Franky Dast books. So Sam just might make it after all…
