Someone is killing mobsters in brutal and hideous ways, and it’s up to the city’s best cop to find the killer, even if his extreme methods put him at odds with his superiors. That cop is Jesus Christ. Yes, that Jesus Christ. No longer a simple carpenter’s son, he’s come back as a pulp hardboiled detective with a quick mouth and quicker fists!

This short story (around 4,000 words) contains violence, swearing, more swearing, violence, a handful of sexual references, more swearing and, finally, more violence. It shouldn’t be read by children, the religiously over-sensitive or people of a generally nervous disposition.

Bonus! – This edition includes the opening of the never-completed sequel, Hardboiled Jesus & The Root Of All Evil, which starts off horribly NSFW and never really gets out of the gutter.


“I love [Sean]. He’s brilliant and he’s evil and he’s going to hell, no doubt, but he’s laughing all the way.” – Sandra Ruttan (Spinetingler Mag, In Suspicious Circumstances, Harvest Of Ruins et al.)

“Synopsis: What if Jesus Christ was a violent, abusive hardboiled detective? It would be AWESOME, that’s what.” – audreyrockstar (shortstory365.wordpress.com)
