Bill Conlon's lust for a high school girl has caught him a stretch at Graterford Prison and led to his kid brother's suicide. And when Bill witnesses his young friend, Mikey, get shanked in the yard of the prison, his guilt comes into high relief. Catching Mikey's killer would make everything right. Or would it? After his release, Bill begins to stalk Deadly Eddie, a former fellow inmate who Bill suspects is the killer. But like a late afternoon shadow, trouble is glued to Bill's shoes. As bodies pile up, Detective Sam Lanza is brought on to investigate and he points to Bill as a strong suspect in the murders. Meanwhile, Bill's girlfriend, Louise, goes missing and he is against the clock to find her before anything happens to her. Can Bill find Louise before she is damaged beyond repair, and finger the real killers before Lanza takes him down for crimes he didn't commit?


"Lanny Larcinese spins a tale as dark, disillusioned, and downright hard-boiled as James M. Cain ever did. Who says American noir is dead?" —Austin Camacho, bestselling thriller author

"The first thing that got me when I picked up Lanny Larcinese's book was the fantastic title, I Detest All My Sins. Then I read it, and wow, it certainly lives up to the title. Wonderfully dark protagonist, and a gritty, original story that's impossible to put down." —David Swinson, bestselling author of Crime Song and The Second Girl

"I Detest All My Sins by Lanny Larcinese is a hell of a read. It's dark and exciting, and Lanny's is one of the great new voices in the genre." —John Gilstrap, author of Scorpion Strike and the "Jonathan Grave" thriller series

"Don't hang up that trenchcoat just yet! The great pulp-noir tradition, as practiced by masters like David Goodis and Jim Thompson, is alive and well in the steady hands of Lanny Larcinese. I Detest All My Sins is not to be missed." —Peter Blauner, bestselling author of Sunrise Highway and Slow Motion Riot, and producer of Blue Bloods television series
