Joe Blake has seen plenty of girls with 'slut' written all over them, but never like this. The girl was near naked, tied to a bed and the killer had driven a sharp object through her heart. 'Slut' had been written on her skin with a black pen. Hot on the trail of the murderer, Joe Blake continues his fight against evil and the seedy underbelly of Australian society. This time, it's personal. Joe Blake never expected to find his friend Latty Sharpe suspended cruelly from the ceiling of a maniac's dungeon. Revenge is sweet, and Joe Blake always fires his warning shots last.
NOW AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE: The second novel in the Joe Blake murder/mystery series, 'Warning Shots Last', has just been released. 'Warning Shots Last' can be purchased on eBay Australia, Books & Collectables or this website.

UPDATED 3rd DECEMBER 2007: TAFE students' artwork for 'Warning Shots Last' and 'The Bikie's Cage' (to be released in 2008) can now be viewed in the Book Covers Gallery.
TAFE student Dean Cinquini has also created a series of Joe Blake comic strips, which can be seen on the Joe Blake Comic page.
