About Me

My photo
I've been a house painter, dishwasher, broiler cook, private detective, military intelligence analyst, and I spent nearly 40 years as a reporter covering crime, 26 of them for the San Francisco Chronicle. These days I write science fiction, fantasy, horror and crime fiction, and I blog about books, films and crimes that don't receive sufficient attention from the mainstream media. I would like to be Elmore Leonard, Raymond Chandler, Ross MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett or George V. Higgins, but all of them are dead so I'll just stick with what I am already doing. . .

The Judas Hunter

By William E. Wallace


Private eye Jack Burial's picture should appear in Funk and Wagnall's next to the entry for "loser:" he drives a clapped-out Chevy station wagon, is being divorced by his lawyer wife and has so few clients as an investigator that his cell phone has been cut off and he's on the verge of eviction. His only real source of income comes from the burgeoning "bond market," in Private eye Jack Burial's picture should appear in Funk and Wagnall's next to the entry for "loser:" he drives a clapped-out Chevy station wagon, is being divorced by his lawyer wife and has so few clients as an investigator that his cell phone has been cut off and he's on the verge of eviction. His only real source of income comes from the burgeoning "bond market" in Oakland, California -- tracking down jailbirds who have skipped bail to avoid prosecution.

So when Burial gets hired to track down a businessman suspected of embezzling from his business partners, things seem to be looking up. All he has to do is find the fugitive -- while ducking the Mafia, a trigger-happy outlaw motorcycle gang and a federal prosecutor who wants to throw him in prison for interfering with her case.

Will Burial succeed in finding the Judas he is tracing or will he end up betraying his own threadbare code of ethics? Cross is piled on double cross as the body count climbs in William E. Wallace's crime thriller, The Judas Hunter

Available now for only $2.99 -- about the same as a large latte at Starbuck's!




"William Wallace's new novel "The Judas Hunter" is an absolute pleasure to read . . .One can only hope that Wallace writes more about [Jack] Burial and his splendid misadventures.."
-- K. Patrick Conner, author of Dying Words

"The Judas Hunter . . . is a novel that treads a path between modern West Coast noir and the breezy, wisecracking genre almost entirely defined by Elmore Leonard. . .an utterly satisfying crime caper tale that left me wanting more. Buy it; it might encourage the author to pen more Jack Burial stories."
-- Tim Stevens, author of Ratcatcher, Delivering Calaban and Severance Kill
