Hustle by Tom Pitts
Hustle
by Tom Pitts (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
There are some pretty grandiose claims in Hustle's introduction, written by Les Edgerton ("author of The Rapist, Just Like That, and The Bitch," we're told), the biggest being that this book will give birth to a whole new offshoot of the noir genre—" ...more

Lady Bette and the Murder of Mr Thynn by N.A.Pickford
Rate this book
Clear rating

Federales is minimalist noir at its best, perfectly evoking a particular time, place and atmosphere with the fewest words possible. Irvin’s sentences are short and brutal like kidney punches, hitting just where needed to have the most impact. As soon ...more
