He's a mob messenger boy and a sex maniac who hunts the ravenous and deadly Snow Leopard deep into the seedy groin of San Francisco's Tenderloin, where he has to choose: Sex or Death? Confessions of a Sex Maniac, Henry Miller Award Finalist, is old-school, hard-boiled, new millennium noir. If Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett, James Ellroy had a three-way, this would be their bastard love child.
