The Gate has created the new online trailer for rising star of British crime fiction Tony Black.
The release marks the launch of the fourth in Tony Black’s series of ‘Gus Dury’ novels “Long Time Dead” published by Random House. These dark tales feature the ‘enthusiastic alkie and reluctant private eye’ in pursuit of crime and corruption and self-destruction.
He’s back on the case, and back on the drink. This time Dury is investigating the ritual murder of an Edinburgh University student – coupling his quest for self-destruction with a relentless thirst for the truth.
As writer Tony Black says, Edinburgh creates the perfect backdrop for crime fiction. “You’ve got your rich Edinburgh and your poor Edinburgh – the ornate buildings and the sink estates. When these two worlds collide, it’s perfect fodder for a crime writer.”
Tony’s work has been garnering praise from all corners with modern literary legend Irvine Welsh rating Black as ‘my favourite British crime writer’.
The trailer by the advertising agency will be featured exclusively on Amazon.
