Repetition Kills You is an experimental noir. A novel-in-stories. A literary jigsaw puzzle.

The book comprises 26 short stories, presented in alphabetical order, from 'Actress on a Mattress' to 'Zero Sum'. Combined in different ways, they tell a larger, more complex story. The narrative timeline is warped, like a blood-soaked M bius Strip. It goes round in circles--like a deranged animal chasing its own tail.

The content is brutal and provocative: small-town pornography, gun-running, mutilation and violent, blood-streaked stories of revenge. The cast list includes sex offenders, serial killers, bare-knuckle fighters, carnies and corrupt cops. And a private eye with a dark past--and very little future.

Welcome to Paignton Noir.
