Pulp fiction for the 21st Century

“Beetner’s searing novel bulldozes its way from one scene to another in the print equivalent of a blockbuster action film.”
“Last chances, double crosses, and a cop who has to shoot his way out of a fortified skyscraper—what’s not to love? ALL THE WAY DOWN rips. It’s fast and fierce, like a guitar solo that hits all the sharpest notes.”
Meg Gardiner, author of Into the Black Nowhere
“Eric Beetner spins a violent, terrific yarn in his latest book that’s sure to appeal to hardboiled crime aficionados and action lovers alike. It’s got the grit of noir fiction, shades of the film Die Hard, and just enough emotion to get you to the end. All The Way Down is one hell of a page-turner.”
“No padding here, no bouts of introspection. Just good writing and straight ahead storytelling at a relentless pace. Masterful, exciting and obliquely funny.”
“Eric Beetner once again proves that he is the one true master of the modern pulp novel.”
“Eric Beetner is quickly becoming one of my favorite new crime writers."

IN THE PRESS
Beetner is an old school talent, a crime writer’s crime writer like Gil Brewer (although, in my humble opinion, he’s better than Brewer), who writes stuff that is fast and funny and dark all at once.
JAKE HINKSON, author of Hell On Church St and Dry County
The new maestro of noir.
KEN BRUEN, author of the Jack Taylor novels
Eric Beetner seems to have a formula that he has used for every book he has published: Fun plot + believable characters + witty dialogue + breakneck pace = novel that knocks you socks off
REGULAR GUY READING NOIR
Eric Beetner's probably the best storyteller you've never heard about. Many authors don't understand how great storytelling work, that's why it's so satisfying whenever you come across someone who does.
Dead End Follies
It's all in the voice, and Eric Beetner's got a live one.
SEAN DOOLITTLE, author of Safer and The Cleanup
Beetner has a keen eye on how to plot a book that never allows the reader a chance to catch their breath.
OUT OF THE GUTTER
If Beetner had been around in the 1950s, he could've had a nice career writing for Gold Medal or Dell First Editions, and that's a high compliment from me.
BILL CRIDER, Author of the Sherriff
Dan Rhodes mysteries
To be blunt, he’s the 21st century’s answer to Jim Thompson.
Beetner has a rare talent for combining breakneck action, pitch-black noir, and razor-sharp wit.
