Robert Chazz Chute – update on new publications

Robert Chazz Chute has previously been featured on Reading Recommendations in July 2014, and is back now to tell us about the completion of his Hitman Series with the omnibus edition of the trilogy, and an autobiographical crime novel.

HJ COVER FINAL LADY IN RED

Hollywood Jesus, Rise of the Divine Assassin
Crime novel
Available to purchase on Amazon

“I found myself rooting for the guy with the gun and the Armani suit.” ~ Armand Rosmilia, Author of Dying Days

Get ready to watch The Divine Assassin blow up in Hollywood.
Jesus Diaz is not your ordinary hit man. His life is like a Guy Ritchie gangster movie, and now he’s found trouble in Hollywood. Come for the thriller twists and hardboiled surprises. Stay for the pop culture jokes.

When the hit man who talks to himself makes his play to save the damsel in distress, it’s Jesus who’s stressed out forever after. Hunted by the mob and the FBI, the funniest, unluckiest assassin teams up with a rising star to break up a sex slave ring. And by “break up,” he means shoot, stab and turn your enemy’s car into an elaborate trap (construction supplies by Home Depot.) The action is rough. Jesus is tougher, or at least he’d like to think so.

The Divine Assassin has left a trail of destruction from New York to Chicago, but his deadliest opponent yet is better at the game than Jesus. But the Cuban assassin has his gun, his wits and a treatise on Donny Osmond’s career highlights. You’re going to love Jesus.

Hollywood Jesus teaches, too. Motto: Thou shalt not get caught!
1. How to survive an explosion…maybe.
2. How to disarm someone without touching them and get the kids to bed on time, too.
3. Dating tips from the Divine Assassin AKA meeting women using the philosophy of Albert Camus.
4. Where to hide your gun when unexpected company drops in.
5. How to stock the perfect surveillance van and how to spot the one following you.

TWEAKED JESUS OMNIBUS COVER WITH CROSS

The Divine Assassin’s Playbook, Omnibus Edition
Crime novel
Available to purchase on Amazon

“Wickedly real and violently funny,” ~ Claude Bouchard, author of Vigilante
“A quick-moving plot with lots of surprises and a clear-eyed examination of addiction.” ~ Mark Victor Young, author of Risk
From New York to Chicago to Hollywood, these are three funny, hardboiled crime novels, rough and tough, twisted and twisty.

The Divine Assassin, Jesus Diaz, wants out of the mob. He needs money to escape and to pay for peaceful, picket fence dreams. And, of course, he wants the perfect woman to love. When the hit man who talks to himself makes his play to save the damsel in distress, he always falls out of the frying pan and into the napalm. The action is rough. Jesus is tougher, or at least he’d like to think so.
The funny, luckless Cuban hit man will get you rooting for Bad because he’s up against Evil. Come for the thrills and surprises. Stay for the pop culture jokes. You’re going to love Jesus, or hate to love him.
The Hit Man Series is fun, funny and violent. Unlike any hardboiled crime series, you’ll laugh and cringe from one minute to the next.

Three full-length novels for one low price.
• In Bigger Than Jesus, Mr. Diaz may get ground up in the gears of The Machine, New York’s Spanish mob.
• In Higher Than Jesus, the little Cuban assassin is brokering an arms deal gone bad while chasing a glamazon through Chicago.
• In Hollywood Jesus, the Divine Assassin blows up in LA and meets his deadliest opponent yet.

IVBT FINAL 2D cover

Intense Violence, Bizarre Themes, The Autobiographical Crime Novel
Crime novel
Available to purchase on Amazon

“Brilliantly placing himself as the lead character in the story, you never quite know what events actually occurred and which are fictional. I am continually baffled by the sheer amount of talent in Chazz’s world building and wordplay. He is a true master of his craft.” ~ Alex Kimmell, author of The Key to Everything

A quest, a giant, a little person, an evil twin, a crone and worst of all, the torment of inner demons! Settle in. You won’t know what to believe.

After a decade away from his home in Brooklyn and running from big mistakes, Chazz returns to find his father’s mind in chaos. His ailing dad isn’t the man he was. As family secrets are revealed, Chazz discovers he never knew his father at all. Sometimes when you find yourself, you wish you had stayed lost.

Your down and out anti-hero doesn’t have an FBI criminal profiler on his case. Chazz works up his own profile as his life spirals down and out of control. The quest is for diamonds, forgiveness and love. Be warned, Chazz won’t even get two out of three. He’s just trying to elude death long enough to settle for one of those dreams.

For you, Dear Reader…
• Writers and readers alike will love a struggling writer’s take on the writing life as he bumbles his way forward (and back to ’90s New York.)
• Regular readers of Chute’s work will find extra fun in the Easter eggs sprinkled from his other books (and if you’re new to Chazz, don’t worry, you won’t notice.).
• At the end of the book is a secret link and password so readers get a little more behind-the-scenes view of what’s real and what is not in Intense Violence, Bizarre Themes.

Please note that I have read three of the four books listed above, two as a beta-reader, and I highly recommend Robert’s writing and these books in particular!

Me B&WRobert Chazz Chute

What is your latest release and what genre is it? This Plague of Days, Season 3. I’ll also be releasing This Plague of Days, The Complete Series at the same time as Season 3 comes out. It’s horror, though I call everything I do suspense. I’m into twisty fiction.

Quick description: Season 3 is the finale to my apocalypse with an autistic hero. A plague virus unleashed by bio-terrorists transforms survivors into cannibals and it’s up to a very unlikely hero to stop it. It’s a big saga that takes place across continents and goes to unusual places, from horror to the metaphysical.

What are you working on now?
The next book is a thriller set in New York. A young man who idolizes John Leguizamo wants to be a movie star. Suicidal friends, a missing mom and a murderer with a hammer get in the way. Should be out in the fall of 2014. After that, I’m writing the third crime novel in the Hit Man Series. Lots to do.

Robert’s reading recommendation:
Blake Crouch. After I read Run, I really wanted to write a crime novel with similar pacing. That was the guiding principal to the foundation novel of the Hit Man Series, Bigger Than Jesus.
