White Knuckle gets a Cover and Synopsis


So if,like me, you are a fan of anything that comes from the pen of the writing machine that is Cy Dethan then you’re be pleased to know that Cy has now revealed the synopsis/cover from his upcoming project White Knuckle.

Check out the gorgeous cover in all it’s glory by the scarily talented Valia Kapdai below.

In case you couldn’t make it out on the cover here’s the synopsis again.

Forty years ago, Seth Rigal was a man to be feared – a serial strangler with a string of victims. Now nearly seventy and tormented by a lifetime of monstrous violence, Rigal lives on the verge of poverty and quietly waits for the death he knows he deserves.

Tortured and confused, still tormented by the drives that made him a killer in his youth, Rigal finds himself almost unconsciously stalking the daughter of his final victim – only to have his precious anonymity snatched from him when he accidentally saves her son’s life.

Seth Rigal, formerly known as the Gripper, just became a local celebrity. The bodies won’t stay buried any longer.

White Knuckle is a complex and intense psychological thriller, distorting the ever-popular “retired gunslinger” motif into a rain-slick urban fantasy of murderous men and the needs that drive them.

Well anything that starts with “Unforgiven meets Harry Brown – and strangles him.” is definately going to be worth me giving a look see and given Cy’s body of work I think we’re onto another winner here. Also given Cy’s body’s of work we can expect a lot of people to get messed up in this book and for me to have a few sleepness nights.

I’m looking forward to seeing more from this project when it’s released by Markosia sometime in 2012.
