"You know what? The bastard blows me out of the water. This guy writes Maine like Ardai writes New York. If you're not reading him, you don't know what you're missing." --Chris F. Holm, author of "The Collector" series, The Killing Kind, and Red Right Hand.

"A refreshingly new voice in noir." --Ed Kurtz, author of Nothing You Can Do and The Rib From Which I Remake the World.

"A glorious boilermaker of noir and East Coast gothic. The action is taut as a sprung snare and Bagley tightens the screws with every page." -- Laird Barron, author of Swift to Chase and Blood Standard.

Shoot to Thrill

"Pandora," featuring my disgraced PI Gideon Cross has been accepted for publication in a forthcoming issue of Thrilling Detective. Giddy hasn't appeared in a story since 2004's "The Western Gate" (in The Sandy River Review, a little university lit mag). I had put the character aside for a while, but I'm writing more about him now. Hopefully, you'll soon be seeing a lot more of Giddy.

Congratulations! And you said I didn't miss much when I was away. Modest bastard.
