Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

LAWRENCE BLOCK is one of the most acclaimed and highly decorated living mystery writers, having received multiple Edgar, Shamus Awards and Maltese Falcon Awards, as well as lifetime achievement awards in the U.S., UK, and France (including being named a "Grand Master" by the Mystery Writers of America, the organization's highest honor).

Review:

"First published in 1962, this erotic crime novel from MWA Grand Master Block (A Walk Among the Tombstones) packs plenty of vicarious thrills, sexual titillation, and taboo breaking. Meg, a recent divorcee who's landed in El Paso, Tex., ready for some uninhibited fun, takes up with Marty, a professional gambler living south of the border. Then there's Lily, the 19-year-old vixen who falls in with a group of young American hipsters living in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, and ends up working as a prostitute. Lily is pursued by Cassie, a fellow call girl who gets her kicks with both men and women. In the midst of all this good clean action is Weaver, a psychopath who has fled Chicago after raping and murdering a 13-year-old girl. This first kill has awakened a hunger in Weaver that must be fed. Three pulp short stories from the same era round out the volume. (May)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
