Joe Coffin Season One Episode One (A Vampire Suspense and British Gangster Series Book 1) by Ken Preston

Get ready. Joe Coffin is on his way. And he’s mad as hell.

Joe Coffin is fresh out of jail, but going straight is the last thing on his mind. The sickos who murdered his wife and child are still out there, and he’s going to get revenge.
The problem is, Joe Coffin is in much deeper than he realizes, and his wife might not be as dead as he believes.

Violent, gory, profane and explicit, Joe Coffin is for mature readers only.

Praise for Joe Coffin
A fast paced, gripping, story line makes this book a real page turner.

This was genuinely the best read I’ve had in a long time and I cannot wait for more from Joe Coffin!

There’s so much crap out there that it’s sometimes difficult to find the diamonds in the muck. Ken Preston’s Joe Coffin shines bright and bloody, and I’m glad to recommend it.

Written in serial form, there are four episodes in Season One, each available individually or as a complete set at a significant price saving.
