Manifesto for the Dead by Domenic Stansberry

The publication of The Last Days of Il Duce brought new fans to Domenic Stansberrys mastery of classic noir. Now, Stansberry turns his ingenious talent for bringing noirs darkness and desolation to life onto one of the genres forefathers with Manifesto for the Dead, a fictional memoir of pulp novelist Jim Thompson.Its 1971, and Jim is drinking away the end of his days in the bars of Los Angeles seamy streets.Hes approached by a small-time producer, Billy Miracle, with an offer to work on a script about the murder-for-hire of a film execs girlfriend.Without options, he begins work on the script but soon finds himself at the center of a lurid triangle involving a dead starlet and a powerful producer.Nightmarish and terrifying, it seems Thompsons life is beginning to imitate his art, as if hes become a character in one of his own stories.Manifesto for the Dead is top-notch noir blended with biography, fiction, suspense, and satire.AUTHORBIO: Domenic Stansberry is the author of a book of short stories and three previous novels, including Edgar Award and Hammett Prize finalist The Last Days of Il Duce and The Spoiler, which was also an Edgar Award finalist.He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife, poet Gillian Conoley, and daughter.
