OFFENDED SHADOWS by Howard Jackson is published by Red Rattle Books

Imagined reminiscences from film noir characters create a unique and original movie history

About the Book:


'CROOKS FOR WHOM GOOD TIMES WOULD NEVER BE ENOUGH, AND LOSERS LIVING LIVES AS LONELY AS THE DOLLARS IN THEIR POCKETS'

'Offended Shadows' remembers 40 movies that do not deserve to be forgotten. In each chapter a minor character from a film noir movie describes another character, usually but not always the hero or villain

'Offended Shadows' also adds imaginary scenarios and histories that complement and extend the Hollywood film noir imagination. In 'Offended Shadows' characters from one movie will appear in other film noirs. More narrative spice is added to the fun by the presence of the Black Dahlia and the mysterious identity of her killer. And just what is supposed to be happening in Bridgeport, California?

Excerpt from the book:

'There was a guy called Mark Marinus Hansen here in LA.  This Hansen guy had a mansion up on Carlos Avenue and he threw these exclusive affairs where the women were almost as expensive as the food and champagne. Hansen knew a lot of young girls, and there they were, waiting to be picked.  Elizabeth Short stayed in the home of Hansen for a while, not long before she was killed and became known as the Black Dahlia.  I said to Jake why don't we poke around and try and nail this twisted heap."

Is she doing okay? I said.

Kind of, said Jake.'
