PREVIEWS EXCLUSIVE!
The long awaited MUCH EXPANDED (over TWICE the story!) novelization of the critically acclaimed crossover graphic novel!
Two of the most unique investigators of all time attempt to untangle the same mystery…100 years apart from each other! The lawless wild west- the hidden world of Victorian London- the present day hell of Hollywood…there…and back again.…one of the strangest stories never told…
“Gentile’s characterization was top-notch. Holmes is brilliant, sharp-tongued, crafty, manipulative, physical and surprisingly compassionate in his pursuit of justice in the name of an unjustly imprisoned immigrant…Gentile’s narrative voice for Kolchak perfectly captures Darren McGavin’s noirish voiceovers and downtrodden schmuck-who-won’t-give-up personality.”- BookGuide
