To Hell with Johnny Manic

by Andrew Diamond

John Manis, aka Johnny Manic–charming, stylish, impulsive, and reckless–is racked with guilt over the secret he doesn’t dare tell. Marilyn Dupree, passionate and volatile, has too much money and the wrong husband. Johnny and Marilyn have a chemistry like nitrogen and glycerine, and that makes Detective Lou Eisenfall very uneasy.

“Poor Lou,” Johnny observes as his mind begins to unravel. “There’s a madman running around his town, and who knows what he’ll do next?”

A twisting tale of deception, murder, and psychological suspense, Johnny Manic is a throwback to the classic crime fiction of Raymond Chandler and Jim Thompson, with overtones of the multilayered Fight Club and Gone Girl. Kirkus Reviews calls it “a feverishly readable psychological noir,” and named it one of the best thrillers of 2019.
