Publisher Comments:

Honey McGuinness hasn't weathered the storm of life; she's been chewed up and spit out by it. Although she hasn't exactly landed on her feet, she's a strong, enigmatic, and untamed creature-with more than enough juice to play with the big boys.

When a haunting past becomes too painful, she moves to Skid Row where she hopes to disappear among the forsaken and forgotten. But things don't work out like she hopes. And when she finds her friend Billy lying in a pool of blood with a tape recorder strapped to his waist, she is sucked right back into the slough.

To avenge Billy's murder, Honey risks it all. Her fearless pursuit of the killer thrusts her straight into the murky, seedy world of sex, drugs, and greed-a sinister and depraved world of panacea and oblivion that holds particular seduction for a gal like Honey. In the final round, bloodied and defiled Honey hooks up with a big lug of a cop who's willing to lay down his life for hers-if both of them live that long.

Bawdy, gritty, and unrelenting, Threshold pushes you to the edge of darkness ... and beyond.

Once you turn the first page of Ms Kozek’s book you realize that you have genuinely crossed a threshold into a compelling world of street people, drugs, sex, crime, and most importantly, the world of Honey McGuiness. Honey is the hard-boiled, soft-hearted heroine of Threshold, and she keeps the reader asking for more.
This noir tale reminds one of the writings of Artaud and his theater of cruelty. The author investigates the bare, raw unconscious below the surface of our daily lives and fictions. This is much more than a noir novel….it is literature that shocks, provokes, and informs, but more than that, it makes us fall very much in love with Honey. I can’t wait to read the next book.

Kozek doesn't mince words or waste space. She loads you onto a fast moving locomotive, drops you off in a dark and dirty place, and manages to bring you out with just a few nasty stains. This is noir-plus. There are unexpected moments when the author pushes beyond the genre into literature, brilliantly manipulating the classic monosyllabic language. The result is raw, unsettling, perverse, and totally irresistible. I sat down to read it and didn't get up till I was finished. I've got a message for the author: Give me more.
