He's come to do a job. A job that involves a body. A body wrapped in duct tape found hanging from the goal posts at the end of the football field. You Killed Wesley Payne is a truly original update of classic pulp-noir filled with dark humor. Hard-boiled seventeen year-old Dalton Rev transfers to the mean hallways of Salt River High to take on the toughest case of his life. The question isn't whether Dalton's going to get paid. He always gets paid. Or whether he's gonna get the girl. He always (sometimes) gets the girl. The real question is whether Dalton Rev can outwit crooked cops and power-hungry cliques in time to solve the mystery of 'The Body' before it solves him. Smart, slick, and alluring, the story follows Dalton as he narrows down the suspects in a dangerous world of clique warfare, homework, and cute girls. Acclaimed author Sean Beaudoin evokes the distinctive voices of legendary crime/noir authors Dashiell Hammet and Jim Thompson in this stylish neo-noir murder mystery.
