“From a writer known for his unflinching, visceral works, BURIED A MAN I HATED THERE is a complex, beautifully-nuanced and–dare I say it?–surprisingly tender exploration of secrets, deceptions and the always elusive possibility of redemption. Adam Pepper is a writer at the top of his game–and his mastery of the subtle, literary novel is a welcome surprise.”
- Bill Breedlove, Author of How to Die Well

Symphony of Blood:
A Hank Mondale Supernatural Case
Hank Mondale, a rough-around-the-edges P.I. with a small drinking problem and a large gambling problem, needs a break. With his landlord threatening eviction and his bookie threatening worse, things look bleak. Until real estate mogul Thomas Blake calls with an incredible story: a monster is trying to kill his daughter. Hank figures she’s probably some whacked-out spoiled brat, but desperate, Hank takes the case to track down the supposed monster. It seems that people around Mackenzie Blake are disappearing. It’s obviously no coincidence. Was Hank hired to unwittingly aid a wealthy murderess? Or is there really someone…or some thing, trying to kill Mackenzie Blake?
A symphony plays that only It can hear. But there will be a special performance, just for her.
Symphony of Blood hits like a sledgehammer. Fast and furious. I loved this book.
