Are you a fan of Charles Willeford’s seminal cult detective, Hoke Moseley? Stupid question, of course you are – or if you haven’t heard of him yet, you’re in for a treat! We’re giving away 10 copies of Willeford’s Hoke Moseley Omnibus, featuring four of the South Florida detective’s best mysteries.
There’s no denying that Willeford’s works are cult classics, especially when so many prominent authors and filmmakers cite him as an inspiration. Elmore Leonard said ‘Nobody writes a better crime novel’ and he knew what he was talking about! Quentin Tarantino cites Willeford as a direct inspiration for Pulp Fiction, and we know how that worked out! Full of colourful lowlifes and outcasts, perfectly capturing the sun-baked strangeness of mid-80s Florida, Miami Blues is considered one of the era’s most influential works of crime fiction.
The four books in the series feature the permanently bedraggled, potentially insane homicide detective Hoke Moseley, who leads us through the seedy underbelly of sunny Miami, Florida investigating crimes so weird they have to be true, from murdered Hare Krishnas to cowboy-hatted psychopaths to surly redneck slavery rings. These books have to be read to be believed.
That’s why we’re giving away 10 copies of our Hoke Omnibus! To enter, email email@example.com with the subject header ‘Give me Hoke!’ with your name and address by 30 September and 10 of you will be sent a copy.
The Hoke Moseley Omnibus is out now in paperback.
