New Book Announcement: The Brimstone Files by Jason Ridler

Night Shade Books is excited to announce a new urban fantasy series, The Brimstone Jason Ridler Author PhotoFiles, by Jason S. Ridler.

Los Angeles,1970: the love generation has a broken heart, hard drugs plague the once-groovy streets, and the promise of the Greatest Generation has been smashed against Vietnam and nuclear Armageddon. Worse, a darkness ripples through the City of Angels, tidings of older evil rising from ancient slumber to menace all. But, as James Brimstone says, “Smile, it could always be worse.”

Former child magician, soldier, and perennial champion of the underdog, James Brimstone is the city’s only private eye who takes the cases too weird, dark and dangerous for the cops to touch. Seeing dead rock stars? Bad trip chasing you to work? Ancient gods giving you grief? Then you need James Brimstone!

Hex-Rated, Book One in the Brimstone Files (releasing in 2017)

An actress is attacked on the set of an “art” film by a strange creature. What the cops see as a bad trip, James Brimstone knows is more sinister. Yet, even he finds more than he bargains for as he investigates the dirty world of pornographic films in the San Fernando Valley, and faces a blasphemous evil not seen since World War II.
