More About the Author

Film, comic book and novel critic for Daily Dishcord and Geek Syndicate, Luke James Halsall is a new British novelist. Always having a fascination with Americana has led his interest down the path of superheroes, crime thrillers and film noir leading to an obsession with the work of Raymond Chandler, Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison and the influential Stan Lee.

As Luke has become older he has become more interested in political ideas, philosophical opinions and religion such as Judaism and Buddhism. Feeling interlinked with yoga and its teachings, Luke is also a strong believer in the post modern works of Baudrillard and criminology.

Luke began writing in university where an idea for a noir detective popped into his head. From here the writing bug has grown into novels and stories to tell the world. Luke likes to build characters, grounding them with realism, whilst telling enjoyable stories.

Format:Kindle Edition
This third book by Luke James Halsall, Hoodie, is a move away from his switch into crime fiction (Forgotten LiesForgotten Lies (The Sam O Hara and Jessica McIntyre Thrillers)) and back into familiar territory of the human superhero. Hoodie, like Halsall's first character (Val Phillips in The Autobiography of the First British Masked Heroine, Val PhillipsLiving With The Edge: The Autobiography of the First British Masked Heroine, Val Phillips), is human and has no special powers. I don't believe I am ruining the story by telling you now he doesn't fall into a vat of chemicals, he is not hit by lightening and a radioactive spider does not bite him. Instead like Mark Millar's Kickass, he is just a person who, through reasons that are examined and explained in the novels, dons a Hoodie and decides to help rid the world of crime.

Unputdownable, Luke James Halsall weaves his special kind of magic through the words and creates a truly interesting and, in this reviewers opinion, unique character. Rich Nicholas is a very human character, who the reader sympathises with but one who the reader is also appalled by. His actions will in turn be understandable to any reader who has been a teenager and gone through that angst-ridden time where nothing anybody does is the right thing, and at the same time so extreme the reader finds this sympathetic character dislikeable. And there in lies the magic. Luke James Halsall has created a character who the reader roots for and wants to be good but who also creates a conflict within the reader as they watch his descent into the darker side of human nature.
