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.
When i read that part of the synopsis i thought no way im gonna get a book that sounds so clichè,so far from my taste. The cool cover pose with the gun, the female author being a contemporary noir author is what made me try this.
I liked Angel Dare despite her porn star name sounds silly. She had a strong voice,attitude that made her beliavable and easy to like despite all the things she does in the book. The novel was fun to read and had some real word darkness in the story. Which is pretty much all i ask of modern noir novels. I havent really enjoyed the new noir novels i have read by Hard Case Crime so far. Most of the HCC novels i have enjoyed have been written by alltime greats,masters of the field.
Strong 3 stars for me, rate it higher than most 3 stars novels.
