What the Critics Say

"An incisively and stylishly written noir thriller... compelling." (Ramsey Campbell)

"An instant pulp classic." (Rolling Stone)

"The sex industry, bodybuilding drugs, and basic revenge make for a potent cocktail in this eye-popping follow-up to Faust's Edgar Award nominee. She's Hard Case Crime's only female author, and her tough heroine is a welcome addition to the gritty pulp tradition. Snap it up..." (Library Journal)

    I love audible. I discovered it as a solution to my long drive (30mi each way) back and forth to work. This is my down time after work.

    edgy and gritty.


    What did you like best about this story?

    the entire thing, sure its a little 'edgy', rough and graphic. but it is fast paced and keeps you on your toes


    Which scene was your favorite?

    where angel realizes the connections - when you read it, you will understand, i dont want to spoil it here


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    nothing extreme - just an edge of your seat, fast paced ride. short and to the point with a 'listen in one sitting' flair

    Story
    "B-movie film noir set in world of porn and MMA"

    I needed a quick, fun action book and this fit the bill. It’s pure pulp fiction. Former porn star Angel Dare is waitressing under a fake name in a nowhere diner after confronting a sex-trafficking ring in the series’ first book (“Money Shot”) — when in walks an old boyfriend who promptly gets shot and, as he lays dying, asks her to protect his son. The kid is an up-and-coming MMA competitor involved with bad people. It’s like a B-movie film noir, only sex positive. That said, there’s a creepy sexual encounter — that is emphasized as creepy by the author — that I will never be able to unknow, although I’d like to. Nothing like Mo Hayder creepy but creepy nonetheless. Bechdel test: pass.

    Excellent narration.
