Jim Christy

Nine O'Clock Gun previous next   Ekstasis Editions

In Nine O’Clock Gun, the fourth and final novel of his Gene Castle, hard-boiled Private Eye series, author Jim Christy once again mines the streets of vintage Vancouver for the gritty characters and nostalgic settings that pepper the previous volumes, Shanghai Alley, Princess and Gore and Terminal Avenue. Castle’s back in his room at the faded Rose Hotel, back at his table at Ramona’s Cafe, but the woman in his life has taken her seamed silk stockings and walked. Vancouver is as dangerous as ever, though, and Castle’s just the man to solve the string of murders striking a little too close to home.

Jim Christy is a writer, artist and tireless traveller. The author of twenty books, including poetry, short stories, novels, travel and biography, Christy has been praised by writers as diverse as Charles Bukowski and Sparkle Hayter. His travels have taken him from the Yukon to the Amazon, Greenland to Cambodia. He has covered wars and exhibited his art internationally. Raised in inner-city Philadelphia, he moved to Toronto when he was twenty-three years old and became a Canadian citizen at the first opportunity. A resident of British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast for many years, he currently resides in Toronto.
