This is a recurring blog segment in which I highlight a book on my wish list. Sometimes it's a new release, sometimes a beloved classic, and sometimes it's a hidden gem.
She's the first female author in the history of Hard Case Crime. She's the one Quentin Tarantino described as "a Veronica in a world of Betties." She's Christa Faust and is responsible for a really cool noir novel called Money Shot.
Well, Money Shot has a sequel now. It's called Choke Hold and I want it. I recently read Money Shot (expect a review in the near future) and immediately put its sequel on the wish list. A book that features a former porn star without resorting to the lowest common denominator made for a fun, fast read. Here's a write-up via Goodreads for this sequel:
Angel Dare went into Witness Protection to escape her past—not as a porn star, but as a killer who took down the sex slavery ring that destroyed her life. But sometimes the past just won’t stay buried. When a former co-star is murdered, it’s up to Angel to get his son, a hotheaded MMA fighter, safely through the unforgiving Arizona desert, shady Mexican bordertowns, and the seductive neon mirage of Las Vegas.
Gritty, sexy, relentless--but enough about the author. I want to read this book.
