The Problems of Vernon Tevis is a series of globetrotting noir stories about a troubleshooter for an international prostitution ring. Vernon Tevis debuted in “You Never Love Once” (Licence Expired: The Unauthorized James Bond, ChiDunnit 2015, edited by Madeline Ashby & David Nickle), a tale that took our antihero to Jamaica. Another episode — “The Fixer, the Cop, His Ex, and Her Killer,” set during a Montreal winter — will appear in autumn 2018 in the Coffin Hop Press anthology Baby, It’s Cold Outside. Several more episodes in The Problems of Vernon Tevis are on the way (watch this space for details). Eventually, I expect to have a book’s worth of these noir adventures.
