#ThrowbackThursday ~ BLACK To Reality by Russell Blake #Hardboiled #Noir Fiction

BLACK To Reality was published in 2014. I loved listening to the series on audio and have the final one to look forward to in hardcopy as it wasn’t released as an audiobook.

#ThrowbackThursday ~ the Lighterman (Charles Holborne #3) by Simon Michael #Crime #HistFic @simonmichaeluk
