The Sequel to Jimmy’s Nephew

I always get nervous whenever things are going too well. And for the past six months, my life couldn’t have been better.

Those are the opening lines of book 3 (as yet untitled) in the Rick Crane Noir series, which I started writing yesterday. Hoping to have it done and available from my publisher, Stay Thirsty, by early 2015.

In the meantime, swing over and pick up your copy of “Jimmy’s Nephew,” book 2 in the series that follows Upstate New York gumshoe Rick Crane as he investigates the murders of three priests, and the killing of an up-and-coming boxer, Joey “Boom Boom” Bonadeo.

Are the crimes related?

Pick up your copy today and find out.

Meanwhile, here are snippets from two of the most recent 5-star reveiws of “Jimmy’s Nephew”:

The swift pace set by author Yost makes it tough to put down. So, grab a jigger or six of sipping whiskey and visit your pal, Rick Crane, and if you know what’s good for you don’t come out ’til the spring thaw.

Yost is at his best in the upstate NY detective thriller. If you liked Cooper’s Daughter you’ll love Jimmy’s Nephew.

About Mark Yost
Mark Yost is the author of the Rick Crane Noir series, published by Stay Thirsty Press. Rick Crane is the classic, anti-hero private eye in the spirit of Sam Spade and Jim Rockford. He works in the unmistakably noirish underworld of Upstate New York, running errands and fixing problems for Jimmy Ricchiati Sr., one of Upstate New York's most notorious crime bosses. But readers quickly learn that deep down, Rick Crane is one of the good guys. "Cooper's Daughter," the first book in the widely acclaimed series, is a fast-moving tale in which a heartbroken father comes to Rick and asks him to find out what really happened to his daughter, who was murdered and the details buried in the Unsolved Crimes File of the local police department. The second book in the series is "Jimmy's Nephew," which begins with the death of Joey "Boom Boom" Bonadeo, an up-and-coming boxer and the nephew of Rick's underworld boss. What starts out as a routine investigation turns into a case that will test Rick's faith -- in the Catholic Church and his fellow man. Book No. 3 in the series, "Mary's Fate" is due out in August 2015. Mark Yost also writes for The Wall Street Journal Arts in Review page, as well as the Book Review section. He is a member of the Mystery Writers of America -- Midwest Chapter, International Thriller Writers, and a number of other author groups. He is also a member of the Amazon Author's Program. Mark lives in the Loyola neighborhood of Chicago, but he and his son, George, call the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn "home."
