The Bartender: Darkness on the Edge of Town is the first book in a three part series that follows mercenary bartender Tom Wolfe through the seedy underbelly of inner city nightlife as he searches out the truth, while hiding from his past.
Inspired by the classic private eye stories of the forties and fifties while adhering to it's own contemporary aesthetic. In each book the story evolves through different pulp based genres as the world becomes broader and broader so as to include the variety of thematic elements and set pieces of the classic pulps in one story.
The first book, The Bartender: Darkness on the Edge of Town, is meant to engage readers and bring them into the world of Tom Wolfe. This introductory volume provides a full dose of two fisted action and adventure while leaving clues that point towards a bigger mystery.
