I love everything about pulp - the tough guy characters, the femme fatales, the noir atmosphere, the cover art, just the whole style that goes with them.
But as much as I love them, there ain't a whole lot of pulp out there featuring female protagonists or written by women. No more! Those wonderful folks over at Hard Case Crime (very awesome, check 'em out) are publishing Christa Faust's Money Shot in February 2008. She will be the first woman that the line has published - so kudos to you girlfriend!
Description:Damn, that's hot. Seriously I'd be preordering this bad girl today if Amazon had it listed (which they don't yet - bastards!). I haven't been this happy since I discovered cheesecake. I can so not wait until February!
They thought she'd be easy. They thought wrong.
It all began with the phone call asking former porn star Angel Dare to do one more movie. Before she knew it, she’d been shot and left for dead in the trunk of a car. But Angel is a survivor. And that means she’ll get to the bottom of what’s been done to her even if she has to leave a trail of bodies along the way...
