Jay Desmarteaux, the walking Cajun shitstorm who stars in “Gumbo Weather,” “Ramapough Ringer,” “Kamikaze Death Burgers at the Ghost Town Cafe,” and my novel BURY THE HATCHET (currently seeking representation) appears in a new misadventure, “The Last Detail,” in the new issue of ThugLit (number 19) for September/October. Yes, it’s a play on the Hal Ashby flick starring Jack Nicholson, but Jay’s not a Navy cop escorting a prisoner… he’s handcuffed to a fiery-tempered woman in her Corvette with an unpinned grenade, and it’s up to you to tell which is more dangerous.
My review of last night’s episode of True Detective is up on Criminal Element:

It takes an Ellroy tack, gives us more characters: 3 cops and a crook, including Rachel McAdams, and keeps its despair on full throttle.
