"Walking past an alleyway is when it hit. Suddenly, I felt a banging on my skull as though I was hit with a truck. The only thing I could see were stars. As I was going down, I threw an uppercut wildly and kept throwing as I went down. I couldn't tell if I connected, but I sure as hell felt a couple of good kicks to my ribs. As hard as I fought to stay awake, all I saw in front of my eyes was a growing blackness. As I went out, I swore I heard a voice in my ear threatening me and the squeal of tires."
Such is the life of John Hasard. P.I. Hasard wasn't always a loner. He was made that way due to the loss of his wife, partner, and pretty much everyone else that he ever got close to. Was he bad luck, or was he just getting what he deserved? But, Hasard isn't alone. Whether it's a sassy cab driver, an arrogant professor, a condescending secretary, or a surly bartender, John's world is full of people who care about him and want to help, regardless if he wants it or not. The stories of John Hasard are a throwback to classic pulp detective stories. Nasty men, beautiful dames, and eccentric sidekicks; people the city, and the stories that Hasard lives within. So, pour yourself a drink on the rocks, tilt your fedora, light one if you got it, and perch yourself on the edge of your seat for a classic PI type two fisted listen.
