Amazon.com: The Skintight Shroud (A Joe Hannibal Mystery) eBook: Wayne Dundee: Kindle Store: Rockford, Illinois has quite a thriving adult-film industry. Oh, the more ambitious productions—the full-length sound features that play what's left of the adult-theater circuit and vie for the various awards the X-rated community has created for itself—are still done primarily on the coasts. But the less pretentious fare, your basic quickies made directly for home rental and mail-order sales and the silent, 10- to 15-minute shorts that play in the peep booths—loops, they're called in the industry—are being churned out all across the country.
