Reviews

Praise for Hex-Rated

"Terrific fun, dripping with rich period detail and nods to Ed Wood movies and Jack Kirby comics. Smutty, profane, and unapologetically slathered in pulp, Hex-Rated is a loving homage to all the musty, dog-eared paperbacks stuffed in the used bookstore's spinner rack." -Jason Heller, NPR

"Steeped in the style of 1970s pulp detective fiction . . . Brimstone is cut from the cloth of the classic wisecracking detective, and Ridler peppers the text with perfectly pitched hard-boiled vernacular. The novel's wild mix of comedy and supernatural perils bodes well for its detective's future adventures."-Publishers Weekly

"Rollicking, exotic, and pulpy to the max."-B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog

"Take Shane Black's The Nice Guys, throw in a double fistful of black magic, and shake until fiery combustion. Bring on more Brimstone Files, immediately." -Andrew Post, author of Aftertaste

"Deliciously uncomfortable, wonderfully gritty,and a worthy successor to the occult detectives of old."-Brian Keene, author of The Complex

"The book inside is even better than the cover. . . . This is the first of the Brimstone Files novels, and I can't wait for the next one. Filthy, magical, and dangerous, Hex-Rated and Jason Ridler should both definitely be on your radar."-Other Worlds Than These

"Fast paced, clever, and a great example of world-building. I loved the diverse and complicated supporting characters throughout and found the magic and lore to be consistent and handled deftly. . . . it has everything you should be looking for in a supernatural-drenched thriller. And that cover art is sweet."-Bob Freeman, Occult Detective and author of Keepers of the Dead
