Lean, muscular, vivid prose in the best noir tradition. J.C. Vaughn puts you in the room with his characters.
Writer/Director of Feast of the Seven Fishes
This is Texas Noir at it's finest. A true page-turner that would make Dashiell Hammett smile. Fast-paced and addictive, SECOND WEDNESDAY never stops giving, and it needs to be the next big Netflix series! I want more Bay and Benson!
Creator/writer/artist of Shi: The Way of the Warrior,
Writer /artist of Sgt. Rock: The Lost Battalion
J.C. Vaughn has been one of the top names in mystery comics for years. His debut prose novel is definitely not to be missed!

Detectives, conspiracies, disillusionment, corpses, mysteries and even an amazing nod to the noir films I love the most. This may be J.C. Vaughn's first novel, but... wait, dammit. How can this be his first novel?
Writer of Earth X, Marvels X, and Justice,
Creator/Writer of The Foot Soldiers and The No Ones
J.C. Vaughn's SECOND WEDNESDAY is a romp of a private eye novel - packed with the elements you need for this kind of story to succeed: character, setting, and tone. Donovan Bay is both an iconic and fresh protagonist, and SECOND WEDNESDAY is the gripping mystery we all deserve. A compelling debut.
Acclaimed author of Star Wars Poe Dameron: Free Fall,
Miami Midnight, Blackout, and more.
J.C. Vaughn has taken the torch from Lee Child and used it to set the Crime/Mystery world aflame like it was Devil's Night in Detroit, 1994. SECOND WEDNESDAY is ground- and bone-breaking, meaning this is where the shovel meets the dirt, where the bones are buried. His use of dialogue and story makes me wish crime really did pay,
because I would steal his ideas and make them my own.
Creator and Writer of Wynonna Earp
