"Key Death is an exhilarating thriller that punches way above its weight. It hits you hard and fast with crackling suspense, hair-raising twists and stunning revelations. Word of advice: don't start on this one unless you're prepared to stay up all night."
—John Ling, author of The Blasphemer
"Creepy goodness wrapped in Florida sunshine, with a side of blues guitar and a bourbon on the rocks. Great fun all around."

Read an excerpt from Pocket-47. (PDF, 33KB)
POCKET-47 sucked me in and held me enthralled. Author Jude Hardin keeps the pace frantic, the thrills non-stop, but best of all is his hero, the wonderfully ironic Nicholas Colt. This is a character I'm eager to follow through many adventures to come.
—Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of ICE COLD.
Nicolas Colt is a PI who cares about people. And, his creator, Jude Hardin, makes us care about Nicolas Colt. Colt is tough, smart and persistent, characteristics he shares with most other private eyes in crime fiction. But he’s a believable character as well - and that’s something many writers seem to have trouble bringing off. Not Hardin. Pocket-47 is a thoroughly engaging, nonstop slay ride. Read it.
—Leighton Gage, author of DYING GASP
In a genre that is about voice, Jude Hardin has created a P.I. with a philosophy and sly cynical wit all his own. Plenty of bad guys and action . . . but front and center is new hero, Nicholas Colt.
—Erica Orloff, author of THE ROOFER
Jude Hardin is a terrific writer and Nicholas Colt is a great character, tough, vulnerable, but with a courageous heart. He's perfectly capable of holding his own in the pantheon of great PI's--Spenser, Elvis Cole, Travis McGee, and now Nicholas Colt.
—Mark Terry, author of THE VALLEY OF SHADOWS
Jude Hardin’s POCKET 47 is a tough, gritty slice of Florida Noir that keeps you guessing all the way to the finish. His washed up rock-star-turned-scuffling-PI Nicholas Colt is a dark but righteous avenger who’s right up there alongside Travis McGee and Dave Robicheaux in the pantheon of bad-ass antiheroes. Check it out--you’ll be glad you did.
—J.D. Rhoades, author of BREAKING COVER
The best PI debut I've read in years, fit to share shelf space with the best of Ross Macdonald, Sue Grafton, and Robert B. Parker. Pocket 47 is so hot you may burn your hands reading. Highly recommended.
