No Tomorrow

$4.99 ebook, $14.95 paperback

It's 1947, and Billie Dixon has just talked herself into a new job. As the distribution agent for Hollywood's shoddiest movie studio, she travels to rural Arkansas peddling B-grade Westerns to poor theaters. When she meets Amberly Henshaw, the unhappy wife of a preacher on a crusade against the evils of motion pictures, she senses an immediate attraction. Billie knows it's crazy to get involved with Amberly, but she tells herself it will just be a quick fling. Once Amberly’s fanatical husband finds out about their affair, however, Billie Dixon finds herself in a spiral of betrayal and murder . . .

Raves for No Tomorrow

Praise for Jake Hinkson:
Reading Jake Hinkson is like watching a wildlife documentary in which the brutality of bad luck unfolds in a split second…  He offers characters we are well acquainted with, then slowly sands down the layers of exterior gloss, exposing the unseen frailties in all of us.

This is a writer to watch…

A stunning novelist…

Praise for No Tomorrow:
Jake Hinkson is the modern-day master of the southern-gothic crime novel, a worthy successor to Flannery O'Connor, Harry Crews, and Jim Thompson. With No Tomorrow, he has created a narrative soaking with desperation and dread set against a wonderfully grotesque landscape. A truly remarkable achievement.
Jon Bassoff, author of Corrosion

Reading No Tomorrow is like finding the negative from a lost film noir. It reinvents noir tropes with gender-bending surprises and elongates the shadows of classic pulp paperback territory. A plot like Cain, setting like Thompson and a style that is all Hinkson.
Eric Beetner, author of Rumrunners and The Devil Doesn't Want Me
