They say you can’t judge a book by it’s cover (and we have certainly seen enough indie books where a beautiful cover conceals a dogs dinner inside), but that is most definitely not the case with The Needle Man, a new book from Soaring Penguin Press. Bringing together the first story of Martin Simpson’s dystopian art deco investigator that were previously published in SPP’s Meanwhile anthology, this is a book which had us hooked from the minute we saw the iconic cover and didn’t disappoint from start to finish.
