“BARRY GIFFORD, Author of "Wild at Heart", on DANGEROUS ODDS by Marisa Lankester:

"Marisa Lankester's unique chronicle of high crimes and low company is as wild a ride as any reader is likely to be taken on.

She was the lone woman in the eye of a predatory hurricane that blew across continents and devastated countless lives. That she survived is testament to her brains and bravery. The old-timers who invented violence as a second language contended that nothing is deadlier than the female, to cross her was to buck dangerous odds, and this book tells you why."

Film "Wild at Heart" won Palme D’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, Film by David Lynch”
