Breach of Peace – Daniel Greene
Lawful Times Book 1
“Existing in a world that feels like its been clawed from the cruelest corners of Abercrombie’s FIRST LAW series, Greene’s novella blends fantasy, mystery, and horror in a stunningly unique fusion of the works of Arthur Conan Doyle and Stephen King. From page one, we’re pulled into the book’s universe by the puzzle of a gruesome whodunit, and though the crime is overseen by a cast of compellingly-competent characters, genius is little match for the speed and force of what’s coming. Indeed, the book’s propulsive pace careens onward until it slams us up against a finish as powerful as the action and catharsis from ALIEN’s final showdown. And, at a time when even the best fiction struggles to outrun the madness of reality, BREACH OF PEACE is everything I could ever want from a novella and more!” – Evan Winter
